When you have a simple, boring sky as your background, one thing you can do to enhance the photograph is to replace that sky with a new one. In this video I demonstrate how to replace a sky using Adobe® Photoshop® using the Select and Mask feature. I also show how you can use Smart Objects to more easily swap out different skies.

If you would like to start masking skies yourself, I have a huge collection of skies over in my store: Sky & Cloud II. This pack contains 200 high-resolution JPEG sky overlays, plus Luminar and ON1 Photo RAW presets to easily add the skies using those programs. Click here to learn more in the Nicolesy Store.
