Adobe Sensei is an intelligent technology that detects the original sky and replaces it with the new one, then automatically adjusts the lighting and shadows to match the scene. Changes are fully editable. You can fine-tune your look in the Layers panel.

Take pictures of skies while you’re out and about and import them using Sky Replacement to add drama and interest to different scenes.
