Import a photo to add to existing photo

Postby ODATROBERT » Sat Jul 30, 2016 5:12 pm

I have a photo with a solid blue sky over the ocean. I want to add one of my cloud photos in the blue sky area. Appreciate any help. Thanks

Hi ODATROBERT,

I don't know if there are multiple ways to do what you describe, but one way is:

1. Open your ocean photo
2. Select File - Add Underlay and load your cloud photo
3. Erase the sky areas in your ocean photo to make the cloud image visible where you want it to be.

Another more complicated way is to use one of the existing sky effects and then edit that effect and replace the image used with your own. I've found some sky effects are dead simple whereas others it's not so easy. Just the way the author created it. Unfortunately I can't remember the one's I've used that are easy :(.

The advantage of this approach is you can move/resize the sky to please.

We also have another product called LandscapePro, specifically for manipulating landscapes, and replacing skies is one of the things it is designed to do very easily. You can find out more and download a demo at: http://www.landscapepro.pics/

Kind regards
