Photoshop Custom Shapes for Landscape Architects / Designers

By on June 18, 2011.

 

Photoshop custom shapes are a huge asset for any landscape architect or designer who wants to utilize Adobe Creative Suite for a landscape plan, section or perspective. Custom shapes allow you to insert an object, such as a tree, and stretch it without loosing any quality because it is a vector graphic. Once you get the right size, you are able to apply blending options to the shape and alter the depth, texture, and opacity. Photoshop custom shapes are extremely useful for landscape plans where you can create custom images for individual plants or plant types.
