Using highquality edge. What I want to do is show you how to add some clouds. A couple of things to bear in mind. One of the things to consider is light direction and the other thing were going to think about is atmospheric perspective haze. And those are the things that are going to make a difference between a very believable, realistic cloud replacement and a very fake one. Step 1. So lets jump in. The first thing were going to do is were going to cut out the sky. Grab the Quick Select Tool.

Another way that you could do it is with Color range. Step 2. We want to select the ground element rather than the sky, Hit Command Shift I, Ctrl Shift I on Windows or just go to Select Inverse. Step 3. Move the foreground to a new layer CmdCtrlJ, that copies the selection to a new layer. Step 4. Lets grab our clouds. Now you can get clouds from wherever you want. I always carry a camera around with me, just shoot with an i. Adobe Photoshop Cartoon Photo Plugin' title='Adobe Photoshop Cartoon Photo Plugin' />Phone or whatever, or if I see some really amazing clouds, I pull out my DSLR and just shoot a ton of them, and then, I just save them in my library under Clouds, and just give them that keyword, so when you need them, you can find them. You can grab them from Adobe Stock or other places online too. Were going to combine these images. Move tool V. Click and hold in the clouds image. Drag it up to the window tab for the foreground image. Wait for the other window to open. Im still holding down the cursor. Moving the cursor down into the foreground image and release, and it will copy the sky photo to a new document. Step 5. All right, so now we can see weve got three layers here. Weve got our clouds, weve got our mountains,and then our original image. What I want to do is put the clouds behind our mountain there. So were just going to click and drag in between the two and notice that little line will appear, and then, drop it in. Step 6. Remember I told you two things we need to doLook at light direction and look at atmospheric perspective. Light direction is the light coming straight down, from the left or to the right The key to understanding this is shadows. Are they going from the left or from the right Notice these shadows on the mountains are on the left. You can see it in the trees and stuff as well. We can look in the ground, we can see the shadows are on the left, that means the light is coming from the right. The brightest part of the clouds are on the right, they are correct. If it wasnt correct, you would hit Ctrl T, right click, and choose flip horizontal. That makes the light come from the other direction. But we not going to do that because its already correct. Step 7. So the last thing we need to do is add a little bit of atmospheric perspective, or haze. When you look at the existing sky, notice how dark it at the top versus lighter at the bottom. A lot of people forget to do that and the sky replacement looks fake. Create a new layer. Tap the D key, and then, the X key, to reset foregroundbackground colors. We want white as our foreground color. Were going to grab the Gradient Tool. Go up to the Gradient options, were going to choose the second option, which is Foreground to Transparent. Make sure the transparency button is turned on. Then we want to make sure this first option is on, which is linear, and were in Normal and 1. Add a little bit of white gradient, so were going to start way beneath the sky and drag up on the canvas with the gradient tool. Game Indiana Jones Adventure World here. If you drag a long way, its going to be a gradual gradient. If you drag a short distance, its going to be a more abrupt gradient. Hold down shift as you drag and notice that constrains it to a vertical line. You can see it added a little bit of haze near the horizon So, anyway, I hope you enjoyed this sky replacement tutorial.
