Part 6. Creating Snazzy Effects > Adding a Beautiful Sky

Adding a Beautiful Sky

Replacing the sky is a particularly neat trick, permitting you to scoff at overcast days, not to mention getting rid of power lines and intrusive foliage. Add a gorgeous sunset and forget it was raining that day.

Start with two images open: a pretty sky and a scene with sky you want to replace. Choose the Rectangular Marquee tool.

Click and drag in the pretty sky window to select a large rectangular piece.

Choose Edit, Copy, or press Ctrl+C.

TIP

Be Sure to Grab It All

In step 2, use any combination of selection tools. The Lasso tool is particularly handy for irregular areas, followed by several Shift-clicks with Magic Wand to get the rest.


Choose the Magic Wand tool, or press W.

In the scene window, click to select the sky that needs replacing. (Shift+click to add other areas to the selection.)

Choose Edit, Paste into Selection, or press Shift+Ctrl+V.
