Amazing Sky and Reflection Replacement in Photoshop

You DO NOT need some AI program to make a Sky and Reflection Replacement. You can do it all from the comfort of your friendly neighborhood Photoshop CC.  By now, you all know I prefer Genuine Intelligence and workflow efficiency over Artificial Intelligence. I prefer the control I have in Photoshop, and I also prefer to keep all my workflow in the same place while working. 

The new AI programs that allow for sky and reflection replacements pull you away from your PS workflow and don’t give you a ton of control over the sky replacement. 

Sure, they afford one-click sky replacements, but they aren’t as easy to modify. Before recording this tutorial, I did try the latest AI software to make the replacement and the reflection.  While the reflection was pretty spot on, I noticed a few issues with the mask along the edge of the skyline.  

I expected to see better results.  That’s when I decided, heck, I’ll stay in Ps. There has to be a way to make the reflection there, right?

In this tutorial, I will not only show you how to make a killer Sky and Reflection Replacement in Photoshop, but I’ll also supply you with some of my skies and an Action that will do it ALL for you!
