A PSD library is a collection of Photoshop Document (PSD) files that contain pre-made elements or assets that can be used in design projects.
PSD files of sky backgrounds, sky overlays, and sky gradients that can be used to create or enhance skies in architectural images.
Additionally, 3D rendering software like Vray, Sketchup, Rhino, 3D Studio Max, and Revit have the capability to generate realistic skys with the use of HDRI files.

Skys library used in architectural work
A Photoshop library for skies in architectural renderings would likely include a collection of pre-made elements or assets such as sky backgrounds, sky overlays, and sky gradients that can be used to enhance or create realistic skies in architectural images.
These elements can be used to add depth and realism to architectural renderings by incorporating different types of skies such as sunny, cloudy, or sunset skies. Additionally, the library may also include tools such as brushes and actions that can be used to fine-tune the sky and make it blend seamlessly with the architectural elements in the image.
In addition to sky backgrounds, overlays, and gradients, a Photoshop library for skies in architectural renderings might also include elements such as volumetric clouds, sun and moon elements, and atmospheric effects such as fog and haze.
These elements can be used to create a wide range of different sky conditions in architectural renderings, from clear blue skies to stormy, overcast weather. The library might also include presets for different times of day, such as dawn, day, sunset and night.
Another useful feature that a Photoshop library for skies in architectural renderings might include is the ability to edit the lighting and color of the sky to match the time of day, weather conditions and atmosphere of the scene. This would include tools to adjust the overall color of the sky, as well as the brightness, contrast and saturation of specific areas of the sky.
Additionally, it’s worth mentioning that some architectural visualization software like Vray, Enscape, Lumion, and Twinmotion have built-in sky libraries with high-quality skies and skies editing tools. It is possible to import the renders from those software into photoshop and adjust them as needed.
