Is the new "Sky Replacement" filter in Photoshop 2020 legal in Standard Editing?

I wouldn't think so, since you're using multiple photographs of different scenes.

And the standard ones that Photoshop has installed wouldn't be considered existing artwork, since it's not obvious.

At least that's what I think. :)

This has not been discussed by SC as a group, but I've been exploring that filter a bit and here's my take:


Using the PS-supplied skies would never be legal, even in Extended Editing.

Inserting a sky from your own work would be legal in Extended Editing as long as it met the date restrictions.

The Sky Replacement filter would NOT be legal in Standard Editing, with the exception of a case where you choose to use the masking function of the filter to mask in a better-exposed sky from the same exposure sequence as your main image (think HDR).
