Thanks Mike for this excellent tutorial. You ask to see our creations so here is my first attempt. I've had a play using Photoshop CS3 and in that have found a majic wand tool that automatically grabs the area, which saves quite a bit of time. I think I need to find a better picture of the sky but its all I had for now.

Hello all,

I have Paint Shop Pro (Version 5) which I have been using for a number of years - without updating.

It is a similar program to Photoshop, and from Mike's screenshots, it seems to have much the same layout and applications.

However, I have never been able to get my head around using the layer mask. All my attempts at removing a distracting background and replacing it with a blue sky, or some other scene have had to be manually and tediously done by hand, usually with mediocre results.

Here's a screenshot of the workspace.

Does anyone have any experience with PSP, and any tips on layer masking?

Many thanks.

Mike, I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 program installed in my computer. Can I get the same results you've achieved?
