The sky replacement tool is a feature in Photoshop that allows you to easily replace the sky in a photo with a different sky. Here’s how to use it:
- Open your photo in Photoshop.
- Select the “Sky Replacement” tool from the toolbar on the left side of the screen. It looks like a cloud with an arrow pointing down.
- Click and drag the Sky Replacement tool over the sky in your photo. This will create a selection around the sky.
- With the sky selected, the Sky Replacement options will appear in the Properties panel on the right side of the screen.
- In the Properties panel, click the “Select a New Sky” button.
- In the “Open” window that appears, navigate to and select the photo of the sky that you want to use to replace the current sky. Click “Open.”
- The new sky photo will appear in the Properties panel.
- Use the controls in the Properties panel to adjust the placement and appearance of the new sky. You can use the “Blend” slider to control how the new sky blends with the original photo, and the “Scale” and “Rotate” sliders to adjust the size and orientation of the new sky.
- When you are happy with the results, click the “Apply” button to apply the changes to the original photo.
- Save your edited photo by going to the “File” menu and choosing “Save As.”
Note: The Sky Replacement tool is only available in Photoshop versions 21.2 and later. If you are using an older version of Photoshop, you can use the steps I provided in my previous message to change the sky manually.
