I wanted to remove this. I started by creating a 512 × 512 image file. I then copied the source image into this file and scaled it to fit into the square texture page (CTRL + T). I then used the Lasso tool to create a selection around the area I wanted to retain. I then inverted the selection by going to Select > Inverse on the menu bar. I then deleted the highlighted pixels. In a few key strokes, a large chunk of the unwanted image was removed. For the remaining pixels around the leaves, we could either use the eraser, manually paint the pixels out, or we could use the magic wand tool to make pixel selections and delete them.
I used the standard Photoshop brush with a medium opacity. In Fig. 17, the new layer is on the left over the background and on the right, all the layers are displayed. At this point, we can consider our texture as being complete. Feel free to experiment with this process to create some really nice original textures. 18 shows the second paint layer on the left over the background and the final result on the right. I created the other three sets of leaves on the texture sheet in exactly the same way, using references from different photos.
Name the frond texture Palm_Frond and the alpha texture Palm_Frond_Alpha. Put these two textures in the second ID slot of the Multi-Sub Object material. They should occupy the diffuse and opacity slots, respectively. Call the material “Palm” if you haven’t named it already. Apply the material to the plane, add an Edit Mesh to the stack, select all the polygons and change the material ID to 2. The palm leaf texture should appear on the leaf model. Next, add a Bend modifier to the stack. Select X as the bend axis and set the angle to 90°.
