I recently took the time to learn how to use Photoshop’s powerful 3D tools that are now included in versions CS6 Extended and CC. I found a bunch of online tutorials really useful that taught me how to extrude shapes, create environments, add materials and render the scene. The 3D interface is really daunting at first, but with these written and video tutorials you’ll be creating cool three dimensional designs with realistic lighting and reflections in no time!

  1. Dear Chris

    I am trying to figure out why ‘even as a member’ I cannot access the downloads you send. I so hope you will respond to me, – I’ve tried on FB also. So we/I can get this problem solved.

    Look foreward to hear from you

  2. Thanks for all these great 3D tutorial resources. 3D is definitely much much harder to master. Once you involve 3D layers (actually not only in Photoshop, but also video visual effects software like After Effects), you need to care about the lighting, shadows, highlights, perspectives, textures, camera placement… Tons of things to consider. I’m sure when it comes to 3D stuff, it’ll take much longer to learn.
