Adobe has been ramping up its AI features in the last couple of years, including its sky replacement functions. With the latest update to Photoshop, Adobe offers you 55 free skies to download. Here's how to get them.
Whether you're a fan of the ever-increasing presence of AI in photography or not, the reality is that it's here to stay and will only get bigger and more feature-laden as we move into the future. When AI first started becoming more ubiquitous in Photoshop and other software platforms, I was both skeptical and hesitant, mostly because I felt somehow cheated after spending years and years perfecting certain editing techniques. But the dam has burst, and now, I just shrug my shoulders and embrace everything. As the old saying goes, 'if you can't beat 'em, join 'em".
In its most recent August update, Adobe Photoshop has added 55 new skies to its sky replacement feature. They are grouped into five categories, including, but not limited to, Sunsets, Storms, and Spectacular. However, if you go into Photoshop and try to access them, you won't see these new editions automatically, even if you've updated to the latest version. In this helpful video by The Photoshop Training Channel, Jesus Ramirez runs you through exactly what you need to do in order to get your creative hands on all these new skies.
