Getting Started

Introduction

LandscapePro is the easiest and fastest way to re-touch landscape photos, allowing you to achieve professional results in minutes.

With intelligent controls that adapt to the features in your photo, LandscapePro allows you to get dramatic results with your landscapes.

The software will guide you through the process of enhancing a landscape photo and is designed to be easy to pick up, with instructions appearing in green boxes when relevant to you. Most users should be able to use the software without ever requiring this manual. If you prefer to watch demonstrations of how to use the software, take a look at the online Video Tutorials. Also, for answers to technical questions there is also an online FAQ.

LandscapePro is available in three editions, Standard, Studio and Studio Max. All three editions are covered by this manual.

LandscapePro is available for Windows and Mac computers.

  1. The dialogue box (drag boxes are very small on the left side of the page can’t read them they were larger the first time I used it how do you make the comments and guides larger and readable rite know I can’t read them.

    1. To change the size of everything in LandscapePro: drag the sizing slider in the top right of the home screen.

  2. I have been experimenting with the trial version before purchasing. Finding it very frustrating using many aspects of it. When I try to manipulate the sky for instance in your example photographs it works perfectly. But when I try the same thing on my on photographs, I find the sky bleeds onto other parts if the picture like the landscape or a building structure

    1. When you replace the sky it will replace all of the pixels labeled as Sky in the initial stage. There are a bunch of different tools for correcting the Areas. Take a look at this page covering the different tools. I suggest you start with the Pull Tool as it is the simplest. Also check out the video tutorials, especially the one about replacing skies.

  3. I am not getting any sound on the tutorial “Getting started-Help” My sound system works fine, and watching a video with no sound or subtitles does not help.

    1. The list of files you’ve recently used is just a list so you can quickly work on something again. They don’t take up any extra space on your computer, and old ones will drop off the bottom of the list as you work on new files.

  4. I have never worked with “plug-ins” I have Photoshop Elements 12 and Lightroom 5, I have Windows 8.2 and a 64bit system. Does Landscape Pro 2 come as a stand alone program? I always have trouble with on-line down loads also. I have my best luck with an actual install disk with instructions. Do you have anything like that? Thanks Mark

    1. You don’t have to use it as a plugin. All the editions work as stand alone. I’m afraid we don’t have it available on a disk though.

    1. Yes you can add your own skies using the “Add…” button in the Sky sliders section. You can save your own presets by clicking “Save Preset” in any section.

  5. I have Landscape Pro installed at my home computer. I spend the summer at a mountain cabin. Do I have to buy another Landscape Pro software program to use it on a small laptop up at the cabin?

    1. Although the official license agreement states one install only, if you have a laptop and a desktop you will be able to install the software a second time for your own personal use only.

  6. why is there not a disc available for installing? I think you have a good program, what happens if I changed my PC with no disc to install. I have had problems with downloads before so I am not sure about a purchase .

  7. How do I “deselect” areas that landscapepro has selected? For instance, it overselects areas of sky into areas that are not sky (i.e. it will select the water in a photo close to the horizon). I don’t see anyway to fix that and therefore when replacing the sky, it puts clouds in the water.

    This seems like a good program, but it also seems like there should be a feature to deselect the areas that overselected.

    Please advise. Thanks!

    1. You need to use the selection editing tools to fix the selections. Because there are potentially many different selections going on, the most common way of ‘deselecting’ an area is by selecting it as something else instead. For instance, selecting the water as ‘Water’ by expanding an area labeled as water. There is a way of saying an area isn’t anything, and that’s by using the ‘Unlabeled’ label. You don’t even need to have an ‘Unlabeled’ label in your picture. You can just click on the Unlabeled label in the Add & Edit Areas panel to lock it, then use the Pull tool, for instance, to mark areas on your picture as Unlabeled.

  8. I thought there were over 100 presets , i am only seeing about 35 of the global presets
    am i missing something ?

    1. There are over 100 presets altogether, including all of the sections, not just Global Presets. To see presets for other sections, e.g. Whole Picture, click on the Presets tab at the top.

  9. I am not getting the required verification code via the system. Need the following advice;
    I shoot RAW files and then do initial RAW processing in CS5. The image the saved as a .psd file. If I then want to utilize LandscapePro for processing the .psd file I assume one has to save as eg. a .tiff file. (i.e. is that the best or only option when using LandscapePro as a PS add-on).
    Once completed in LandscapePro, one would then be able to import the .tiff file back into PS.

    1. If you are using LandscapePro Studio as a PS add-on, you can find it in the Filter menu in Photoshop under Anthropics. Then you don’t need to save it as an intermediate tiff.
