    Not sure about the first one (look like a number of palms). The second one appears to be Sabal sp., perhaps Sabal minor.

    Cheers, Barrie.

    I am putting together a Landscaping Software program so the customers can see what the plants will look like on a photo of their home.

    Absolutely not "Hyophorbe lagenicaulis ( bottle palm )". The leaf structure and crown shaft are wrong.
    More likely Ravenea rivularis.

    Cheers, LPN.

    Methinks what Canadianplant is asking is "are these your own pics that you made yourself, or are they someone else's copyright pics lifted off the internet". The cut-out appearance of the pics with no background does rather make them look like the latter!

    That's usually the format used in landscape programs so they can be inserted by the designer.

    Cheers, LPN.
