Have you ever taken a photo of a beautiful beach scene or landscape, only to realize that everything in the foreground is crisp at the sacrifice of the sky being overexposed? Or perhaps you've felt compelled to swap out a gray day sky for something brighter?

In situations like these, one of the best ways to correct the shot is to replace the sky entirely. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be difficult, nor does it require expensive software.

BeFunky’s Photo Editor features the handy Sky Replacer tool, which uses powerful A.I. to replace the sky within any photo – in just a few clicks! Keep reading and we'll show you how.
