I have a very nice shot taken one late evening by the sea with nice evening light on the rocks, waves etc but, the sky is washed out (white). I have in my files a nice shot of clouds taken also late evening which is very close the main shot.
I use Photoshop CS3 and XP, I want to superimpose the shot of the cloud over the main shot. Today I have purchased a Photoshop CS3 in easy steps book and I cannot see what I want there, although, I don't know what I am looking for, however, how do I go about doing this please?

Hi Charles, select, using magic wand, varying the pixels till all the white sky is selected.
Then select all on your own sky image, then copy and 'paste into' on the original washed out image and you can then position the 'new sky' where you wish. Even scaling to suit,

Do not follow, I may not lead. Do not lead . . . I may not follow.

I do the same and then use a bit of eraser and paintbrush to clean up the edges and then a bit of blurring to taste after flattening image.
