Sky Builder is a collection of customizable drag & drop items for creating photorealistic skies in Photoshop the fast and easy way.

Sky Builder For Photoshop

The Sky Builder consists of 5 carefully prepared collections of harmonizing items for creating custom skies in Adobe Photoshop CC & CS6. Perfect for everyone in need of photorealism and full control over every element in the sky. The spectrum of included resources ranges from plain sky gradients over sunlight, clouds, moons, rainbows, rain, star & snow overlays to birds and airplanes. All items were created highly customizable and were prepared for a fast and easy drag & drop workflow.

Image editors, photographers, and 3D artists often find themselves in the need to replace a sky in a photo or 3D rendering. Searching for the perfect sky on the internet often takes a lot of time and leads to unwanted compromises. This diverse bundle of resources takes a different approach and enables you to build a unique photorealistic sky for any foreground directly inside Photoshop.

The smooth sky gradients are more than simple sky overlays, they support lossless resizing to any resolution and will enable you to set the perfect light direction for your foreground. To get a sky gradient to match your foreground, you can change the gradient’s colors, light direction, brightness, and contrast using prepared layer styles and adjustment settings. Adding a sun, some clouds and maybe even more little details like birds or airplanes will bring your sky to life. Customizable lens vignetting and film grain layers can be activated and will provide the ideal photographic finish.

Included in this set:

• 50+ sky gradients – customizable sky overlays for Photoshop
• 20+ suns & sunlight effects (12 suns, 6 sunlight effects, 3 lens flares)
• 7 layered cloudscapes
• 12 moon phases
• 5 weather overlays (3 star overlays, 1 snow overlay, 1 rain overlay)
• 12 rainbows
• 10 airplane contrails
• 13 aircraft (7 planes, 2 balloons, 2 helicopers, 1 parachutist)
• 11 flocks of birds
• PDF help files for every product

    IT simply does not work. I purchased this item and followed the instructions that says:
    “Drag & drop the folder containing the sky (sky folder) from the layer panel on to your photo.
    2. Use “free transform” (Edit > Free Transform) on the sky folder to make the sky fit your photo….” and so on, but nothing works. When I drag and drop on to a target photo, nothing happens.
    Very disappointed in my purchase

      Hey Rifdhi,

      Thanks for taking the time to comment and I am sorry to hear that you are not 100% happy with your new resources. Rest assured I can certainly help with this and Have popped you an email that should help!

    This just specifies Photoshop. This will not work in Photoshop Elements then, correct? I just want to be sure before I purchase the package, because I have Elements, and sometimes these items are either a go or a no go with it. Thanks!

      Hey Sharon,

      Thank you so much for commenting.

      This particular pack contains Photoshop brushes and layered PSD files, and so may not work as fully intended in Elements. Because of this, the designer wanted to list this pack as only compatible with Photoshop, however if you would like to purchase this pack and trial it out in Elements, we do always offer our 30 day money-back guarantee to refund you if you feel that these are not useful for your projects :).

    Can you tell me if this product contains the same items as in the individual packs, such as the moon and sun packs?

    • Annabel Smith

      Thanks so much for commenting Ann, and I am really sorry for any confusion over what is included in the Sky Builder for Photoshop!

      We do always include detailed preview graphics, so our community can see exactly what in inside each of our offers. You should see that this collection includes the Sky Gradients, Sunlight, Clouds, Moon Cycle and Rainbow packs, so I hope that this helps :).

    WONDERFUL product. Is it compatible with Corel Paintshop Pro X9?
    Thank you for your response!

    • Annabel Smith

      Thanks so much for commenting Ed!

      Unfortunately the designer has advised that this pack has been created specifically for Photoshop, and so these files will not really work in any other design software. I’m really sorry for any disappointment caused Ed, however if you would like any help in finding similar products that will be compatible for you, please do let me know and I can certainly help narrow down your search!
