New Dimensions of Fun for All
Photoshop CS 6 Extended makes 3D approachable and easy to use for novices
wanting to experiment in 3D as well as seasoned 3D artists The powerful 3D tools in
Photoshop can easily fit into many workflows
Photographers
Photographers can use Photoshop s 3D features to add an extra level of realism to their
works or to add additional elements that were not in the original photograph This also
allows all of your previous images to be reused in a new and exciting way
Print and Graphic Designers
For graphic designers Photoshop has been and will continue to be their go to app
Currently there is a trend of more 3D artwork being used in print and advertising
material from 3D text floating in space or sitting on a counter or shelf to compositing
various 3D elements such as cars or a clients package and artwork into a photograph
Web Designers
The web is an ever changing landscape of graphics and information As a web designer
you are constantly looking at trends in design and offering solutions to your clients Now
you can easily create 3D assets for your website such as banners and buttons complete
with transparent shadows and materials
Motion Graphics
Combining Photoshop s 3D tools with the Timeline provides motion graphic editors a
quick way to comp up wireframes or assemble and produce various motion elements
such as lower thirds with 3D text
The New UI
There are many improvements in the overall interaction design and experience for 3D in
Photoshop CS6 Some features include
Updated look and feel
Easily create new 3D content from layers shapes and text using menus and
Simplified 3D tools 3D Move 3D Eyedropper and Material Drop tools
Intuitive on canvas interaction with 3D objects and views cages and more
Separate Scene and Properties panels
Scene Axis for view navigation no matter what is selected
Tool Option Bar Move Tool active with new 3D Mode tools top on canvas UI elements left
Properties and 3D panels right
Welcome to the New User Experience
Interaction with 3D objects the scene and properties has been greatly simplified in
Photoshop CS6 Extended making it much easier to get around and saving time in
your workflow While easier to use the 3D Engine has also become increasingly
capable providing both better effects and faster rendering times
To make all this intuitive Adobe introduced new UI elements on canvas such as the
cage and axis widgets as well as improved panels and menus making it easier to
understand without a lot of study
A Room with a View
To better navigate working with 3D in Photoshop there are five distinct areas you will be
working with menus the toolbar the tool options bar panels Layers 3D and
Properties and the on screen UI cage axis widgets and other HUD elements
Some of Photoshop s 3D UI Elements
Integrated Tools
There are now only five 3D Move tools two camera tools the 3D Material Drop Tool
the 3D equivalent of the Paint Bucket Tool and the 3D Eyedropper Tool This is greatly
simplified from CS5 which had more than 25 separate tools
The Move tool s 3D mode become active when 3D Layer is selected
The 3D Mode tools left to right Rotate Roll Drag Slide and Scale
In the toolbar the 3D Material Eyedropper Tool is now in with the Eyedropper Tool top and the
3D Material Drop Tool is in with the Gradient Tool bottom
Cage and Interaction
The cage is a new on canvas control that allows users to easily and intuitively work with
3D objects When selecting an object either on screen or in the 3D panel the cage
control presents itself along with the object axis widget The cage provides a user with a
large interaction target making it easy for a user to move slide and rotate a selected
3D object in the scene
Current View selected in 3D panel cursor hovering over 3D text outlined
The cage allow users to move an object along an axis or within a plane
New to Adobe Photoshop CS 6 Extended are the various heads up displays HUDs
used interaction with object properties and providing real time feedback Below is an
example of the 3D extrude HUD elements for deform and cap
3D Extrusion HUD overlays Deform HUD controls Taper Twist Extrude Bevel Bend and
Shear left Cap HUD controls Bevel and Inflation right
Getting Started with 3D in Photoshop
Getting started with 3D in Photoshop CS 6 is easier than ever with the integration of 3D
creation into various tools and contextual menus In addition when an image or vector
layer is selected in the Layers panel the 3D panel allows you to quickly create new 3D
objects with the click of a button
When a layer is selected you can create 3D objects using the 3D panel above
We will use the above test image for some of the samples to follow
Making a Postcard
One of the easiest 3D objects you can create is a 3D Postcard It takes the selected
layer and then applies the layer as a material to a flat rectangle Unlike the 3D
Extrusions objects 3D Text and 3D Shapes a 3D Postcard does not have additional
attributes such as Deform and Cap properties
To make a 3D Postcard simply select the layer in the Layers panel then in the 3D panel
select 3D Postcard and click Create
Test image converted to a 3D Postcard
Same 3D Postcard seen from the left notice there is no extrusion depth on a 3D Postcard
Creating a Material on a Preset Objects
Photoshop ships with several shape preset for you to use much like the 3D Postcard
These shapes include Cone Cube Wrap Cube Cylinder Donut torus Hat Pyramid
Ring Soda can Sphere and Wine Bottle Simply select the layer from the Layers
panel you want to use as the material then in the 3D panel select Mesh From Preset
then choose the shape you want from the drop down list and click Create
Examples of Mesh Presets clockwise from top left Cone Cube Wrap Hat and Sphere
