Blue Sky Cloud Kit 1 for Sky Replacement

Receive 200 high-resolution cloud & sky backgrounds PLUS 60 clouds perfect for Luminar's AI Augmented Sky Tool, PLUS FREE Bonus Videos on how to use them for your own sky replacements!!

NOTE that this is a brand new cloud kit and none of the clouds & skies contained in this kit are in my original Ultimate Cloud Kit that contains 400 different clouds & skies.

  • A Total of 60 Extra Clouds These extra clouds have been specifically designed for Luminar 4's AI Augmented Sky Tool
  • Photos Can Work in Any Program These photos have been individually professionally edited by me and are ready to use in any photo editing program.
  • FREE Bonus Training! Videos are available showing how to use these in Luminar 4 using the AI Sky Replacement & AI Augmented Sky Tools.

Who is this FOR?

Real Estate & Commercial Photographers

It never fails: the day the house or business property is scheduled to be photographed and you have nothing but boring blue skies. And the forecast is like that for the rest of the week! The client can't wait and you can't reschedule. So photograph it on that blue sky day and quickly replace the sky with one of these cloud backgrounds.

Travel & Vacation Photographers

For most travelers, you only have one week or one day or even just one hour at a particular location that you may never get a chance to be at again. Why let a boring sky ruin your photo? Use these sky backgrounds to breathe new life into your travel photos.

Creative Photographers, Illustrators, and Anyone Else Who Needs to Replace a Sky

This is the perfect collection for anyone who needs to improve their photos or graphic design with high resolution clouds and skies!

Blue Skies are Usually PRETTY BORING


Why You Need My Blue Sky Cloud Kit

Let's face it - a lot of the time when we are outside photographing, we are out there shooting in the hours after sunrise and before sunset. And quite often, the skies are nothing but solid blue, and pretty darn boring too!

So for my Blue Sky Cloud Kit 1 for Sky Replacement, I spent a ton of time (and patience) waiting for the perfect clouds during this time period to photograph and prepare them for you. I did this so that you can focus on getting your shots on the bluest of days, and use these clouds in my kit to add some interest and excitement to your photos.

And I photographed a bunch of clouds and skies for you - 200 to be exact (plus 60 for the AI Augmented Tool in Luminar) - for this kit. 

In the original image above on the left, here is a typical boring blue sky. Great location, good composition, but the photo is just lacking because of all that solid blue sky!

By quickly replacing the sky using Luminar 4 and my Blue Sky #179 image, we now have a photograph that has more interest because that boring blue sky is gone.

What AM I Getting WHEN I PURCHASE this Cloud Kit? 

Not only do you get 200 cloud images to use to replace your skies, but I also chose 60 of those images to specifically optimize for the new AI Augmented Sky Tool in Luminar 4. This new Tool allows you to add clouds to your current sky without completely replacing the overall sky. Perhaps you have a great shot but it just needs an extra cloud or two - that is what those additional 60 images are for!

Other photographers, and companies, are selling cloud packs that have only 20 or 25 photos in them. To me, that just doesn't seem like you are getting a lot of options to choose from when looking for the perfect clouds for your image. And chances are, you end up using the same clouds more than once because there just isn't that many to choose from to begin with.

That is why my Ultimate Cloud Kit contains 400 skies, and it is why this new kit - my Blue Sky Clouds Kit 1 - has 200 of them. To give you a large variety to help get that perfect final image for you, and to lower the chance you need to use the same clouds over and over again.

And by providing you with so many clouds at once, I can offer them to you at a much lower cost-per-cloud than what others can provide. All while providing you with cloud photos that are at a much higher resolution and better overall quality than what you may typically find.

If that wasn't enough, I am also including some FREE Bonus streaming training videos on how to use these clouds in Luminar 4 using the AI Sky Replacement Tool AND the new AI Augmented Sky Tool. PLUS if you have any questions after watching the videos, you can ask them in a Comments section below the videos for me or other users to help you.

Look at the difference a sky with clouds makes to your overall marketing message when trying to sell or rent your property!

Which PROGRAMS Can I Use These In?


Any program that works with JPG files can open them, which means pretty much every graphics program out there.

But to do a sky replacement, you will most likely be using programs such as Photoshop, Luminar 4, Topaz Mask AI, ON1, or Affinity Photo.

Even a simple photograph of a bird on a tree branch can be improved by adding some clouds to the background!

Will the FREE BONUS VIDEOS Teach Me How to Do Sky Replacement Using My Program?


This bundle includes free bonus videos on doing sky replacements using Luminar 4, which is one of the easiest programs to use for this technique. But even if you use another program, be sure to watch the videos to get valuable tips on replacing skies so they are not noticeable.

I may consider doing extra bonus videos using Topaz Mask AI and ON1 based on popular demand in the future.

In this example the above photo on the left isn't bad, however the dead-space in the upper left is a bit of a distraction
as your eye gets caught up in all of the empty blue sky.

By simply adding some extra clouds to the sky using Luminar's AI Augmented Sky Tool and one of the 60 included clouds optimized specifically for that Tool we now have a photo that brings your eye where you want it.
