The hottest thing going in photo post-processing these days is doing a sky replacement.
Recently, Adobe introduced a sky replacement tool for Photoshop.
Photzy Author Jenn Mishra took the tool through its paces and gave us a thorough review.
“Photographers have been using Photoshop to replace skies all along, but the process could be time intensive. Before the Sky Replacement tool, you’d have to carefully select the sky using various selection tools and create a layer mask. If the foreground and sky formed a clean edge, then this wasn’t too difficult. But if trees or other intricate edges were overlapping with the sky, masking could be tricky.
With the new Sky Replacement tool, two clicks in Photoshop will take care of the masking. Even Lightroom users who don’t have a lot of Photoshop experience will find this tool accessible and easy to use. You don’t have to know how to create layers or layer masks. The program will do it for you.” – Jenn Mishra
