I have always replaced dead flat skies with clouds - with the alteration (the "damage") that DAP does in it's work process, we don't really have to worry too much about extra-superb work in the matting.Rachel wrote:Amazing! Like magic I have a new sky and the color of the entire photo is improved. Thank you, Bill. Your instructions were fabulous and each step worked like a charm. I hope everyone gives this a try!
Here's some more for you, taken from Northumberland skies.
Dap doesn't really like large areas of similar colours/patterns - even plain blue is not much good, flat dull grey, etc - all replaced with a cloudy sky.
I don't even bother to match lighting and light direction any more (I used to obsess over it until i checked output images -- it just donna matter!)
Here's a photo example of one I replaced:

This image now has 6 and 7 in it. Just click the blue box to see them. They are the final steps for this stage. Save the virtual effect when done, you'll need it in the future. BTW I included the mask for you so you don't have to do it again. In the future when you want to use it just hit the Trash Can on the left to delete the mask and create a new one.
I have a couple of questions. I saved the first flow with the first 5 steps, should I delete it so the new 7 step flow will work? How do I increase the size of my masking brush? What image should I use as my main image, the original, the one with the corrected sky or does your flow have a main image in it? (I couldn't get it to appear (error message). The flow is there but not the image. The slider for step three has disappeared, as well as the one for step 5.
I did upgrade to the latest reactor version, maybe that is giving me the problems.
I'm sorry that I am so slow to grasp even the simplest of instructions but I really want to do this!
Thank you for your patience!
