Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a selection-based composite, part of Photoshop CS6 Selections and Layer Masking Workshop.
I generally try to take the most efficient approach to any task possible. …And in the context of creating a Composite image in Photoshop that usually …means using a selection as the basis of the Layer mask that will blend the two …images together. In this example, I'd like to replace this …not so interesting sky, with the puffy clouds image, that I have here. …I've already assembled the image into a composite, I have two layers, in this …particular case, a Puffy Clouds layer, and this Old Street layer.…
And so, I'd like to create a layer mask to replace this sky with the sky found below. …As a side benefit, that will also let me avoid the task of having to clean up a …dust spot that's up in the sky. So, that's an added benefit in this …particular case. The first step in using a Selection as …the basis of a Layer Mask, of course, is to create the selection. …So, I'll go ahead and Click and Hold the mouse on the Quick Selection tool button …on the toolbox in order to bring up the Flyout menu. …
