3D Tutorial Compilation

3D Example

Over on TipSquirrel, I’ve been publishing occasional tutorials on 3D in Photoshop, and I thought it was time to bring them all together into one handy index. I’ve been really excited about 3D in Photoshop since version CS5, when Adobe introduced the ability to create a variety of 3D shapes using a technique that they mysteriously called, “Repousse.” In version CS6, Repousse was re-named to the more descriptive “Extrude,” and the capabilities have jumped ahead to the next level!

Still, the early tutorials with Photoshop CS5 are relevant learning material, especially the article listed below explaining, “what’s an extrusion?” I plan to update most of this material for CS6 to create an up-to-date overview of Photoshop’s 3D capabilities, but for now, here you have most of my 3D instruction, in one handy place. Enjoy, and learn!
