INTRODUCTION



There are currently several software applications available to the digital artist that specialize in creating and rendering wonderfully detailed landscapes.

The purpose of this tutorial is to present a simple but effective Photoshop technique that is capable of enhancing both the beauty and photo realism of these landscape creations.

For this tutorial, I will be using an image created and rendered in UISoftware's Artmatic Voyager.

Photoshop will be used for all enhancements.

I hope that you find this tutorial useful and informative.

Enjoy! - paul

Thanks so much for that tutorial. I learned new things I didn't think of before and I appreciate the effort. I also use KPT 6 Equalizer that is very interesting for postwork of Landscapes. Bernard

Great Tutorial I always thought those generated landscapes looked too phony for my taste. I cant wait to try these techniques. Your example looks great. Thank You So Much
