This Photoshop tutorial will teach you how to add clouds to a background of any image. This is tutorial is useful if you want to add clouds to an image without clouds. There are many ways to create this effect but I have used the cloud filter.
For this tutorial I use a free stock image of a field which is available at:www.sxc.hu
Add clouds to an image
Open an image in Photoshop.
Duplicate layer by selecting ctrl + J.
Now go to filter > render > clouds. There should be a black and white cloudy image.
Change the blending mode to screen.
Add a Reveal all layer mask by selecting Layer > Layer mask > Reveal all.
Using a black paint brush, paint the areas where you don’t want any clouds. This would be most of the image.
You should now have an image with some nice clouds.
