    Hi

    I have adapted an old favorite background of mine to be more Apple friendly. I did the apple using the warp tool, but am stuck on the leaf.

    Who can point me at the right way to do it (I am terrible at making images from scratch). I mainly use CS3 for my photography so creating a bezelled silvery apple leaf is driving me nuts.....

    here is the image so far......

    Am not asking for someone to do this for me (tho I wont be offended ;) ) but if anyone can give me a mini-tutorial - couple of bullet points in the right direction would be so appreciated .

    You might already know this but just in case... Option + Shift + K in Chicago or Lucida fonts (there's more but those are the ones I remember) will produce an :apple:. Maybe that will be of some use to you in making the apple or the leaf? It's text so it's a vector layer (scalable FTW!) so you may need to rasterize it in order to use some of the effects and filters but there's some you can do while its still in vector.
