Landscape Essential Effects

Essential Landscape Photoshop Effects with the click of a button.

Version: 1.0.3 now available for CC 2015 see below on updates & how to install.

In my workflow, I find myself using these popular techniques very frequently, and some of these tasks are very time-consuming to do again and again. So I’ve created my own Photoshop panel that does all of these essential tasks quickly, easily AND non-destructively!

Note: This product is a Photoshop CC and later Extension, it will not work in earlier versions of Photoshop (works with Photoshop CC, CC 2014 & CC 2015).

This panel gives you the following actions in a panel inside of Photoshop CC and later:

1. Fog

2. Mist

3. God Rays (Thin).

4. God Rays (Big)

5. Make Dodge & Burn Layer

6. Light Sharpen

7. Heavy Sharpen

8. Add Drama

9. Explode Details

10. Cartoon Effect

Version 1.0.2: Fixed a bug where certain effects would not work as expected if you did not have measurements set to "pixels".

Version 1.0.3: updated version now works with CC, CC 2014 & CC 2015

To update to the latest version of this panel:

1. Quit Photoshop.

2. Open Adobe Extension Manager CC.

3. Locate "com.PhotoSerge.Landscape.EssentialEffects.1" under "Photoshop CC 2014", select it and click remove.

4. Download the latest version from your downloads on
