Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing the surfaces, part of Photoshop: Smart Objects.
- [Instructor] In this chapter, we're going to look at…creating a complex distortion that will enable us…to wrap a label around this can,…and then of course, swap out the contents…for any label we choose.…To prepare the artwork, I first made the can into a cutout…and I've hidden the original label…and created this white version to go on top of it.…I've added shading to that white version…which will show through when we add the label afterwards.…I've also made a new layer of just the label…and this will allow us to use it as a clipping mask…so that the label that we put on afterwards…will fit perfectly onto the can.…
And finally, I've created this grid.…We'll use this grid to create the initial distortion,…since it will be much easier to see a what's going on…when we distort a regular grid…rather if we start by distorting a real label.…The gridlines will show us exactly…where to put the distortion.…The first step as always is to turn…this layer into a Smart Object.…We'll make a clipping mask of the grid with the label.…
