Sky Swap AI is one of the big features in ON1 Photo RAW 2023, but ON1 has now split it out to also offer it as a standalone program and plug-in. You can open ON1 Sky Swap AI as an app, or launch it from Capture One, Affinity Photo, Corel Paintshop Pro, Apple Photos, Photoshop or Lightroom Classic.
A new landscape enhancement technique first introduced in Luminar Skylum and now offered by a number of different photo editors. It uses AI to identify and mask the existing sky in an image and then offers a series of alternative 'replacement' skies in various styles. The masking and sky replacement is usually highly effective, though does vary according to the subject and the software.
The ON1 Photo RAW 2023.1 update is free to existing users and might just convince users of older versions that it’s time to upgrade. It also makes this software’s AI credentials that little bit more convincing for anyone weighing up ON1’s do-it-all photo editor against Skylum Luminar Neo.
