In Adobe Photoshop, where do I find ready-made images, like a tree or a leaf?

Thanks in advance.

Simple answer - you don't!

If you are looking for leaf shapes etc to dray onto your images, google "Photoshop brush packs" and loads of free ones are out there to find.

Alternatively, if you are looking for images to act as backgrounds or clipart style inserts for your images, again - google is your friend, and there are plenty of freebies on flickr that are available under the creative commons license.  Further to this, there are plenty of free image librarys out there for you to pilfer your way through.

There is not "clipart" likewise in Photoshop.
As Pearl_export_ben stated, the way to go is brushes.
You can google for different aspects and install them to your photoshop directory.

OK, so I downloaded an .abr zipped file brush pack. How do I install it and then find it in Photoshop? Thanks for the help so far!!

Place the *.abr files into:
Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop X\Presets\Brushes where X is the version number for your version of Photoshop.

Kimmyel, I extracted the zipped files to the directory you specified, and they are there as *.abr files.  I have one last question. How do I load them into Photoshop?

Great Sheana11,

Take a look at this 4min video:
http://www.ehow.com/video_4753726_use-photoshop-brushes.html
That explains how you use brushes, your custom added brushes should be listed there aswell.
Best of luck!

You can search for free brush packs, like suggested above, or you can also try free photoshop shapes. Custom shapes are another feature, but can be better than brushes because they are editable vector shapes, so you can scale as big or small without loosing quality.You install them the same way you install and load brushes, but making sure to put them in the custom shapes folder instead of the brushes folder.

Here is a link to some good nature ones (but there are a million different kinds out there):

kmead6, I can't find a download link for the dezignus link floral pack. Everything clickable just redirects you to other sites to install questionable software. A number of comments on the page attest to that fact. Perhaps you can help me with this. Thanks in advance.

Underneath the example image (the purple, orange, green image), which is below the overview image of all the shapes, there are download links to download the file from rapidshare, media fire, etc. As far as externally hosted files, I trust this site and prefer to download via media fire.

If this still doesn't work,  I just googled "custom shapes nature Photoshop" and pulled the link from one of the top ones to show you what they were. If you google that or similar phrases you can find many more.
