    Hi,

    This might happen in 2 situations:

     - when the skies are not visible enough on the photo;

    - when you're trying to apply the filter on the Adjustments layer. It works on image layer only.

    Hi there,

    I found this to be true as well under certain circumstances.

    One of them was having already used the tool on the original image layer, OR if the image I wanted to try using it on did not have what Luminar thought was sky in it. I think sometimes it was also greyed out if I tried to use it on an adjustment layer instead of the original image. 

    Some of these make sense, I guess, but an up-to-date useable user manual that explains things would help with the frustration.

    Too bad the tutorial videos show that you use the sky replacement for other creative images and it doesn't work. :-(

    BTW it would be nice to have more tutorials with the latest software version.

    Hi Cameron, 

    More tutorials are in the works. You are welcome to check our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/macphunsoftware/videos as well as the YouTube channels of our Affiliate Partners. 

    For instance, here are plenty of new tutorials dedicated to the new AI Augmented Sky Feature: 

    https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=luminar+4+augmented+sky 

    As for Sky Replacement, as long as the sky in the photo occupies at least 5% of the image, the tool should work. 

    We may reconsider this limit in the future.

    You may submit a sample image for which AI Sky Replacement tool is greyed out at https://skylum.com/support so that we could check it. 

    Here's how you can send us the files:

    1. Visit https://wetransfer.com/
    2. If it's your first time visiting this website, it might ask you to purchase a subscription. Simply select to proceed with the free version.

    4. Select the file(s) on your computer.
    5. After you see all the files you need to send appear in the list, click the icon to the left of the Transfer button (the icon looks like a circle with three dots in it).
    6. In Send As select Link.
    7. Click Transfer.
    8. After the files have finished uploading, click Copy Link and paste it into your support request. 

    Cheers!

    Kate,  Thank you for the fast and informative reply.

    I am curious as to how Gary McIntyre was able to do this in the following video.  As I have a similar photo.

    Hi Cameron,

    We'd need to have a look at your image to be sure. You can submit it to us with Kate's instructions above and we'll check it out.
