How to Add a New Sky to your Photo

There are plenty of reasons why you’d want to swap the sky out of a photo.

Perhaps the image you captured was perfect… except that it was an overcast day.

Perhaps the only time you could take a photo on holiday was when the sky was blown out (too bright and cloudless).

Whatever the reason, using Photoshop to add a different sky to your photo could take hours of editing, not to mention the skill required to do it – I know I couldn’t!

Thankfully, there’s an affordable software called Luminar 4 which can help replace skies in just one click.

Aside from this impressive party trick, it’s also a fully fledged image editor, with tons of artificial intelligence enhanced editing features – read more in my Luminar 4 review.

In the meantime, check out the video above from around the 1 minute mark where I grab a random image from the Internet and add a realistic sky to it, all in about… well, check the video to see!
