Up and Running with 3D in Photoshop CS5 Extended

with Uli Staiger

Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hi, my name is Uli Staiger, I'm a photographer, book author and trainer for many years. I'm born in Germany. For a few years I've been focused on a particular topic, the fascinating possibilities of 3D visualization. After having produced many videos and articles about imaging that combines photography and 3D. I would like to show you how to create cool image using Photoshop's 3D tools, and working with a Wacom tablet. You'll start with a basic image, that shows a submarine in a bathtub. The angle of view is quite special, so the easiest option to put a water tap in the image, is to use the 3D tab.

The angle of view is quite special, so the easiest option to put a water tap in the image, is to use the 3D tab.

You'll learn how to place and how to light it. You'll also learn how to shape the object and give it a metal look. After the image is rendered a few nice and really cool 2D techniques will help to create a stunning look. I hope the process of creating this image will inspire you. All the techniques shown can easily be used for your own projects, have fun.
