Browse/Shop.: To view our images, select either the Big Gallery (if you have a reasonably fast Internet collection, such as cable access) or Quick Views (if connection is slower).

For more information, move the cursor over the short menu at the right (without clicking) to see a popup description.

Quick Views. Opens in a separate browser window.

There are two pages in Quick View:

1. Quick access to views for any DVD.

2. A list of DVD titles by DVD number.

On the Quick Views page, put the cursor over each column heading to see a popup description of the method of viewing.

Use the blue arrow on Quick Views and DVD List pages to togle between those two pages.

Adobe Reader and Adobe Flash Player are required for viewing certain Quick Views. Use the Software>Free menu option, above, to obtain the free Player and/or Reader -- or to update to the latest version -- directly from Adobe.

Viewing Help. Opens in a separate browser window.

Access more complete help regarding all methods of viewing images.

This is the same Help that you can access from the Help menu at the top of each page, but the Viewing Help menu option at the left will open the help directly at the section on Viewing images.

DVD Products page.

This is an under-construction page that may be eliminated when the Estore system is finally integrated.

Big Gallery. Opens in a separate browser window. Adobe Flash Player required.

This Complete Gallery has been produced by the award-winning Shozam software application. It provides the most comprehensive set of viewing options: slide shows with optional music, detail sheets with pixel dimensions, and multiple ways to view images.

It also serves as our Estore since each image has a button/link where you can add images to a secure shopping cart.

Some of the Quick Views access smaller, faster-loading Albums. Use the Viewing Help option in the menu at the left to get more information.

Contact Sheets (PDF). Opens in a separate browser window. Adobe Reader required.

This menu option brings up the complete Adobe Reader Document that contains contact sheets for all 31 DVDs in the 2000skies.com collection. Bookmarks index the images by DVD number.

Individual Contact sheets may be accessed on the Quick views page.


The Big Gallery and some Quick Views require the free Adobe Flash Player. Contact Sheets (PDF) require Adobe Reader. Use the Software> Free option in the menu above to access download buttons.

Browse/Shop by using our Gallery and its Albums

Our huge collection is subdivided into 31 "Albums" and those albums are merged into a single "Gallery." Access to single albums is provided through our Quick Views page. Each image in the "Big Gallery" is accompanied by a button that will allow you to add the image to a secure shopping cart. Not in the market to buy? Then sit back and enjoy. You'll find the audio more pleasant if you have good speakers or maybe a set of Bose acoustic ear phones. Don't want music? Click the Audio checkbox to uncheck it and the music goes off. There are more instructions about viewing the galleries and "Quick Views" in the online browser help.

At this site, you will find a huge collection of sky images for royalty-free use as backgrounds for digital images. More than 2000 high-resolution frames were photographed exclusively for 2000skies.com. Use these images for sky replacement in Photoshop and other digital imaging programs. We have sky replacement tutorials, sky image galleries and slideshows and contact sheets, suitable skies for use as backgrounds in every outdoor scene. At the bottom of most pages, you will find scrollable text like this that will give you more information about our products, slideshows, contact sheets, and tutorials.
