In the past, replacing the sky required multiple steps and careful fine tuning in order to achieve a seamless look. Now you can save time and get the look you want by letting Adobe Sensei do the masking and blending for you.
Reduce the number of steps in your photo editing workflow by using the new Sky Replacement feature.
Follow these 3 simple steps to get started:
In the Sky Replacement flyout menu, you can set the following options:
- Shift Edge: Determines where the border between the sky and the original image begins.
- Fade Edge: Sets the amount of fading or feathering from the sky image to the original photo along the edges
- Brightness: Adjusts the brightness of the sky
- Temperature: Adjusts the temperature of the sky warmer or cooler
- Scale: Resizes the sky image
- Flip: Flips the sky image horizontally
- Lighting mode: Determines the blend mode used for adjustments
- Lighting Adjustment: Opacity slider that lightens or darkens the main image where it blends with the sky - a setting of zero will not make any adjustments
- Color Adjustment: opacity slider Determines how strongly the foreground is harmonized with the sky colors - a setting of zero will not make any adjustments
- Output: This allows you to select whether the changes to the image are placed on New Layers (named layer group with masks) or a Duplicate Layer (single flattened layer)
In the advanced settings, you can select the following options:
- Create New Sky Presets: Create a new preset for your sky preferences
