In this Photoshop tutorial, we will walk through the full process of dragging a new sky into an image and creating a very complex selection of the existing sky to isolate it and fill it with the new sky. I’ll also show you how to use the blend modes and multiple layers to create an effect that can change the way any photograph looks.

Greatest cleanest tutorials

Marc Herrmann says:

Hi Nathaniel, do you think that this replacement could have been facilitated by using “Blend If” applied to the blue channel, rather than fiddling with the different (luminance) masks? Or did the sky not contain enough blue information for this approach to work?

DOllAr'S MeDiCAtIoN says:

How you add captions to your every youtube tutorial videos. Please make a video on this!

Neil Martin says:

Nathaniel, your white balance has gone crazy in your videos, man! I mentioned this on another of your videos a month ago here: but the whitebalance has gotten progressively worse. Are you ok over there?

Morten Normann Almeland says:

What kind of screen recording progam do you use? Camtasia or Adobe Captivate? Or something else?

Marcio Rihass says:

It would be very nice if photographers put edited with photoshop or something when they upload pictures like this. Sure it’s pretty, but picture taken by blablabla photographer is a little bit weird considering the final result has very little from the picture taken.

Love that building. I think it’s the Merchant Exchange Building in the Olde City district in Philly.

Bill Ding says:

As you said the sky is already clear, it’s a bit more tricky when there’s clouds and grey coverage
