I went to draw a magenta box in Photoshop. Instead of a box, it drew a “Buffalo Thorn Tree.”
Somehow I accidentally clicked the shape tool to be a “custom shape”. Photoshop decided to draw a tree. Two trees sit on top of my file, because Photoshop wasn’t doing anything after the first shape, so I clicked again, creating a second tree.
If I kept clicking my file would have become a forest!
I searched twitter for: Buffalo Thorn Tree photoshop. No results. Apparently this has not happened to others.
I am running Adobe Photoshop 2021. This tree shape is a new feature in 2020.
Wowsa, the tree shape slows down Photoshop INCREDIBLY. It’s like my Photoshop is now slow as a tree. To save this file with just two tree shapes, it’s taking at least three minutes to crop the file.
Well, now I now I can whip out a Buffalo Thorn tree anytime I want. It’s native to southern Africa. It is a fast growing, deciduous, drought and frost resistant tree. And Photoshop loves it!
