Creative Commons Quercus Lobata/Valley Oak Leaf Scans

I’m doing a website project for my grandfather, Robert Edminster - once I finish it, I’ll be sure to mention it here. To make a long story short, the design involved an oak leaf motif. So, I went outside, picked a small branch from the Valley Oak outside, and scanned them three of the oak leaves that were in the best shape. I’m releasing the original source image as well as a couple of edited/cleaned-up versions of the original image.

I believe these are leaves from a Valley Oak, Quercus lobata, but I could be wrong.

You can download all of the derivations I made of the original scanned image, including the original image and a transparent PNG GIMP .xcf file, here, in a .zip file: oak leaves zip. As well, here are the individual files:


Oak Leaf Original

Oak Leaf Transparent Background PNG

Oak Leaves Lightened Original

Oak Leaves Light Background Tile

Oak Leaf Light Background Single

And a single oak leaf, GIMP .xcf source.

Glad you like them! It’s the wrong season for doing fresh scans of new leaves right now, but let me know if you need any of the existing images in a new format or something.
