Open a 400x400 transparent image

In your foreground color box choose a dark green

Next using the preset shapes tool
with these settings

make a triangle sort of like this (resized for faster loading)

Our next step is:
go to image> effects>texture
and use these settings
Texture 262
smoothness 8
depth 68
ambience 12
shininess 56
color white
angle 151
intensity 35
elevation 54
repeat this step 2 times

now your tree will look like this

Using the smudge tool (the hand on the tool bar), with this settings on the 1st tool settings the size did vary from 2-7 as I went up the tree, creating the limb like look, and do start at the bottom as trees in real life do the same. top branches overhang lower ones and get smaller towards the top


just play with it till it something you like

add a tree trunk too, but first make another layer and drag layer 2 under layer 1, so your trunk will be behind the branches...I used the magic wand and made marching ants around the trunk, filled it with a wood looking background, then used eye candy HSB Noise to try and make it more realistic, merged all visible and added a drop shadow
this is what it turned out to be




EVERY effort is given by this club and its members, to keep the tutorials AND credits intact and given to the assumed to be ORIGINAL author of the tutorials we place on our web site. We can assure you that it is none of our members who has changed any authors name, or tried to take credit for tutorials that are not their original creation. Due to the amount of cutting and pasting that happens on all of the Internet, we cannot be POSITIVE that the names of the authors is correct, we have to assume that the names and credits are correct. We have made every effort to give correct credit, where credit is due on all entries put on our web site. We make all effort to contact all known authors to get permission to place their tutorial on our site. We are NOT responsible for posting tutorials that may have been unknowingly pirated and sent into our group OR for tutorials whose true authors name changed to give credit to someone to whom it does not honestly and legally belong to. Many of our members are also members of other PSP groups and get a tutorial from the other groups, then if they like it, they share it with our group...We DO give credit in all instances where that credit is known. We assume the same happens with all PSP groups. We have seen identical tutorials come thru with VARIOUS different names claiming to be the their authors. We have no control over this.

This web page is in place for the enjoyment of those interested in PSP, learning how to use their program and make tags and various things available with it. Please keep in mind that it is out of our control if someone, prior to our group, has pirated pieces and changed who the author is. 

NOTE: we received a nasty letter from someone who claimed to be the author of one of the tutorials on our site, the ACTUAL author is a longtime KNOWN friend of one of our authors.
