FS2004 How put some trees on a photo scenery?

Hi all!
I'm newbie on the scenery maker world. I'd like plant some trees in a photo scenery. Which tools can I use for this? Is there any tutorial?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Is it a big area? If so, autogen is probably best. You can use the Annotator tool from the SDK for that. For a small area you could place them with Instant Scenery or a tool like that.
 
Hi Arno and thanks for your response.
I've tried using the Annotador for FS2004, but I got some buildings and not some trees on a small area on the photo scenery (in this case a photo scenery of the Manaus, my home).
Is the Annotador able to put some autogen on a photo scenery? I'd like to make some "better than default" for my home town.

Yes, you can place vegetation rectangles with Annotator as well.

Oh, OK. I will try it again.
I don't know, if I am not wrong...but in the Annotator documentation, is written that it works for default ground texture and not for custom texture...something like that...

Within the annotator's "Autogen Configuration Editor", you need to load up your autogendescriptions.spb, click the tree you want to use from the "Vegetation Groupings" menu and then hit "Set GUID" next to the Vegetation button inside the "Control" panel and then press 'V' or the 'Vegetation' button. Not sure is FS9's annotator allows you to use "polygon region" but if so, you can use that to draw polys of vegetation on your image.

Oh, thanks Darren for your support.
I'll try this on this weekend.
Are that instructions for Annotator for FS2004? I don't remember to see "Set GUID" on the menu bar of the Annotator for the FS2004. That instruction is available in the FSX version.

No, the FS2004 Annotator doesn't use all those guids. In the options you can set two tree types and their density. That's all. And you can only draw rectangles, no polygons.

Thanks a lot, Arno and Aviasim. I got them!
But, I think that they are so sparse...is there any way to become a massive cover of trees?

My next step will be put some road on the photo scenery.

If you draw more rectangles they become more dense.
