    Link Photoshop Realistic Trees and Forest Tutorial

    Hi everyone,
    I thought I would let everyone know that I have written my first tutorial on how to make "realistic" forests and trees in Photoshop. I have explained each step and why I use and suggest settings, making it really easy for the user to easily manipulate to get their own effects. This style is effective for close-ups (see more individual trees at once) or long-distances (see entire forests at once).
    The style that can be achieved is in this screenshot:
    Photoshop Realistic Trees and Forest Tutorial-map-trees-350x300.jpg
    You can read the tutorial Create Trees or Forests for Cartography Maps at my website Ervirath.
    At the very end of the article you can also download the Photoshop file that can be readily made into a pattern, so please do!
    If you download I would really appreciate it if you can leave a thank you comment on my blog

    Thanks for the feedback Gidde!
    I'm offering the files for free on my website, but since I did use some source files please double check the original artists' copyrights just to be sure it suits your purposes.

    There's a copy of it on The Wayback Machine, but no images:

    She didn't pay her hosting or domain registration bill, so that website is gone, as you can see from the most recent comments in this thread. I posted a link to the tutorial on The Wayback Machine above. It's a little difficult to follow without the images, but it's still possible.

    Her web and graphic design business page is still up, but as far as I know it doesn't have anything cartographically interesting on it.
