What do you do when you want to gorgeously document the look of your shot location, but the weather just isn’t there? One thing you can do is to replace the sky during post-production.

Ideally they both should have been shot at the same focal length. And what do you do after that?
You can use blending modes both in your work with layers and in your work with editing effects in ZPS. When you’re working with layers, you’ll find the controls for blending modes in the right panel under the Layers line, above the list of layers.

ZPS offers you over 20 different choices of blending mode. The best way to get to know them is by trying them out.
