Mask Sky in Photo Raw 2022
In v.2022 a mask of the sky can be automatically created by the program, but without going into the new Sky module. I thought I would mention this in case anybody else has missed this. I nearly did because the option is a little hidden away.
After opening the usual masking tools, on the menu bar go to Mask --> Mask Sky. That's it.
The created mask is not always perfect, but can be adjusted using the refine tools. This method may be faster and easier than creating a sky mask "manually".
I'm pretty sure it is using the Sky Swap AI with its default settings to create the mask. Masks made with both tools look identical or nearly so to me.0
Good to know. I have a sky that I need to move laterally and the Sky app doesn't have that option, so I'll have to use layers. That option might come in handy.0
Yes Rick. It might also be handy when masking Effects filters and Local Adjustments.0
