Luminar 4 with AI Sky Replacement

I just installed Skylum's Luminar 4 with it's new AI Sky Replacement algorithms. The software installed fine but did not properly install as a plug-in to Lightroom (since I prefer Lightroom's Library Database for managing photos). Here are instructions from Skylum to setup as a Plugin.
  1. Make sure Lightroom is closed.
  2. Open Finder, click Go > Go to Folder and paste the following path: /Library/Application Support/MacPhun Software/Luminar4/Plug-Ins/. There will be a bunch of files in there, the ones you're interested in have the following extensions: .lrplugin and .lrtemplate.
  3. Open a new Finder tab or window and click Go > Go to Folder one more time and navigate to the following path: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Modules/
  4. Copy the .lrplugin into the folder that you opened in Step 3.
  5. Click Go > Go to Folder one more time and navigate to the following path: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/External Editor Presets/
  6. Copy the .lrtemplate file into the folder that you opened in Step 5.
You may be asked whether you'd like to overwrite the existing file in the folder or keep both, choose to overwrite in all cases.
