Vivid Sky

In this tutorial, you will learn how to enhance your sky in Photoshop CS4.

Many photos shot outdoors look great, but can be enhanced with some simple work to the sky. If you want to achieve that eye popping color you will either need to shoot your images with a polarizer on your camera, or retouch them later in Photoshop.

There are two main methods for retouching the sky in Photoshop. One involves using a vibrance adjustment layer, and the other involves making a gradient. I show both methods because each has its pros and cons. The vibrance method is vaster and gives the whole image a vibrant look. The problem is that you may want to only affect the sky and sometimes the sky is too blown out for this method to work. The gradient method takes a little bit more time, but allows for much more fine tuning. Choose which method is best for you and have fun creating vivid sky in Photoshop.
