What image editing programs do you have? In order to do something like sky replacement, you will need a program that uses layers, and selections. Without knowing what program you will use, I can't describe how to do so..

I can use PaintShop Pro ($79) or PhotoImpact ($89). Or try EN1221's suggestion of using GIMP.

:cool:
PhotoFiltre is a complete image retouching program. It allows you to do simple or advanced adjustments to an image and apply a vast range of filters on it. It is simple and intuitive to use, and has an easy learning curve. The toolbar, giving you access to the standard filters with just a few clicks, gives PhotoFiltre a robust look.

What exactly isa "sky replacement"?

bigdawg Aug 23, 2006 10:54 AM

They mean cutting out the sky in a photo and replacing it with the sky either from another photo or with one you've created! I stay away from this as much as possible and will do as Bill says and shoot it at another time when the lighting and or clouds are better. Or I will use filter plugins to enhance the sky as it is. Saying all that You might try what 12noon suggested and get photo filter and practise with it! It is a full featured program that is free of charge and does most of what photoshop does but does it quicker and easier! Also with less strain on your memory!
