I did a tutorial a while back, mainly for my camera club on replacing a sky using the Easy Panel. I chose the Easy panel over Raya Pro because not everyone had it. Hope this may help people..........

Thanks Steve a simple process. What I find hard is getting the new sky to match the tones in the foreground. Any tips on how to do this?

You can do that in a number of ways:

1.  You use the "Color Balance" option on the layer that you want to adjust.  For example, let's say you have a sunset sky but the foreground is a daytime image with a cooler tonality.  You can use "Color Balance" to make the foreground warmer to match the sky.  To do that, in the Color Balance properties panel, drag the first slider to the right (towards red) and the last slider to the left (towards yellow).  The exact values would depend on how warm the sky is, and whether it is a more reddish sunset or a more yellowish one, etc.

2.  Another way is to use "Photo Filter" on the layer that you want to adjust.  

3.  Sometimes, it may be just a particular color that you want to match, let's say the tone of blue.  In such situations you can use "Selective Color" and target the blues.

4.  You can also use the "Color Match" option found under Menu>Image>Adjustments>Match Color.  Here you can select the Source, which in this case should be the file you're working on, and you also have to make sure that you select the Layer with the tonality that you want your final image to have. There are a few more adjustments on this panel that you can tweak to give you the best result.

I'm sure there may be many other ways to match the colors but this is what I could think of right now.
