Learn about Tree Textures

August 19, 2009

What are Tree Textures?

What are Tree Textures? Tree textures are images of trees used for computer modeling. The tree images have the background removed so that the trees can be seamlessly integrated into renderings. The renderings can be for architects (houses, landscaping, commercial development) or for game designers (trees for racing games, FPS games, strategy games, etc.).

What makes a good tree texture?

Why are our tree textures good? To begin with, they start out as high quality digital photographs. These photos are taken with DSLRs using appropriate settings and good glass (lenses). The next step is to postprocess the image and make sure it is up to our quality standards. Finally, we remove the background from the image. This last step is one of the most important because it insures that our images will work will Photoshop, Autodesk 3ds Max, FormZ or any other program that supports TIFF image transparency. Our images are “plug and play” or “drag and drop” because they don’t require tweaking to remove fringing etc. This can save untold hours of work during the lifespan of a modeling project.


Please post in the comments and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

We’re having our first ever texture sale over at NetRender. Every texture package is 35% off, but this is a limited time offer. In the middle of March prices are back to normal.

Once the sale is over  we’ll be adding some new texture packages and it will be time for us to get outdoors once again to take photos.  We’re expanding our number of tree textures, flower textures, and palm textures.

John has also been working on his website. Many of the renderings in his portfolio section use NetRender textures, so head over there to checkout his work if you get the chance.
