How to use 2d cutout images of trees and people in Blender 2.5

The use of cutout images to represent trees and people in architectural visualization is quite common, and is by far the best way to add vegetation and people to a project. If you keep track of the articles and tutorials of the blog, you may remember that in the past I have already posted a way to use cutout images in Blender. But, back there we still used Blender 2.4x. How it works now, with Blender 2.5? Well, it didn`t change much.

If you want to watch a great tutorial that shows exactly how to use 2d cutout images in Blender 2.5, just check the tutorial below.
