It’s no secret that the Sky Replacement feature in Photoshop is a huge hit. Go to Edit>Sky Replacement, choose the sky you want, and Photoshop automatically cuts out (masks) the image and places in the new sky. It’s a game-changer, and I don’t use that word often. You may or may not be aware that you can also use your own skies, but when the feature was first released, you had to choose them one at a time. No more! 

A new feature was recently added where you can now import multiple skies at once. Choose Sky Replacement, and click the arrow to the right of the Sky preview thumbnail in the Sky Replacement dialog to reveal the list of available skies. If you look at the bottom of that list, you’ll see an icon that’s a little plus inside a square. When you click that plus icon, you’ll be taken to a browser window where you can navigate to your sky images and select multiple images. When you click the Open button, they’ll all import together now. This is a huge timesaver for people with large sky collections.
