7. Time to add another piece of entourage from your library: the plum tree. Maximize the Entourage-Library window. Drag the PlumTree layer into the Elevation4 window. Close EntourageLibrary .psd. Press V to select the Move tool, drag the tree down to the top of the ground line, and center it. Press Ctrl+T, and scale the tree down and position it as shown in Figure 6.34.

The shadows of leaves from a deciduous tree can be pleasing. To accentuate the drama of filtering light through the leaves, you will treat these shadows in a special way. Start by generating shadows with an effect, and then convert the effect to a layer. You will later transform and distort the shadow layer separately from the tree.
