It used to take many steps in older versions of ON1 Photo RAW to replace a sky. It required you to manually find the sky and use layers to add a new sky as we talk about in this video. Well thats not the case anymore with Photo RAW, we’ve made even more improvements in version 2023 to Sky Swap AI to make replacing skies a breeze.

When applying the Sky AI, it is getting most of the sky in the mask. However, I need to be able to fine tune the mask by adding and subtracting various areas. How do I edit using Sky AI with local mask adjustments?

You could either copy the mask from Sky Swap AI into local adjustments, or simply use the masking tools to refine the mask in Sky Swap AI.

How do I use my own sky? I can see how to get my skies into Extras Manager with no problem. Now how do I get ON1 sky replacement to access the skies I have loaded in Extras Manager?

Choose the category from the Sky Swap panel just below the “Import” button in that panel. Choose the category you imported them into and then choose from your imported skies.

I just downloaded 2023 today and this feature doesn’t appear to be working — it’s on top of my photo layer and I don’t see a way to change this. Is there something else I need to do or should I just wait for the next update…..?

Something else is going on as we havent heard of this happening. Make sure you select a new sky first and then it should remove the old one. If nothing is happening then make sure you don’t have a layer above this one as it will only change the sky on the targeted layer.
