quick replacement of autocad blocks in photoshop?

MusicFreakArchiGuy

I am rendering a site plan where I have same tree repeated over and over again in autocad. Those trees are as simple circles as blocks in autocad. This means that if I change the radius of one circle, all the tree circles change automatically of that particular instance. 

. Now, I want to replace those circles in photoshop with tree. Replacing them one by one is taking time. Is there a quick way to replace autocad block trees of autocad in photoshop with a different tree jpeg so that work time is saved?

Is the PDF rasterized? If so, no, there is no way. Autocad blocks don't translate to photoshop.

Well, the only way I know of transferring an autocad plan to photoshop is a raster method only. I mostly take a pdf in photoshop and it rasterizes it. 

If it is not possible, is there a smart way to put trees in photoshop as specified in the autocad drawing instead of slogging one tree one by one over the autocad drawing?

Not really. Redo the PDF illustrator.

Without custom scripting no.
