    Hi Martin,

    You're right - the layers are always stacked on top of the base layer, so if you want to experiment with different effects, it's best to leave the base layer unedited or apply only the general edits. (Note that AI Sky Replacement and AI Augmented Sky can be applied only on the base or a stamped layer). Turn on or off the adjustment layers to select the version you like most. 

     Another method you can sometimes use is to create a custom Look from your settings on an image. Then, create a second Look with alternative settings. That way, you'll be able to see different looks in the User Luminar Looks section of the Looks Collection. You can then easily hover over each of them and see the image change.

    That's great advice.  Thanks Kate.  I haven't tried making my own looks yet, but it was on my list.  I'll give it a go to try different effects.
