How to merge two backgrounds?
I have a day sky that has trees in it and basically what I want to do is delete the spaces where the day sky is & replace it with a picture of a starry night sky so that the end result is the night sky peeking through the trees.

Help?

quickly made a little video, 2.5 mins

that is one way (of many) for removing a sky. I made a new background but if you have a photograph of a night sky you would import it as the bottom layer. You can also 'tweak' the selection using the quick mask function if buildings are included in your selection.
