9. Adobe Repoussé with Corey Barker  > 9.4 3D and Photoshop Effects

9.4 3D and Photoshop Effects

As I have mentioned before, one of the biggest advantages of having 3D capabilities in Photoshop is that we are always in Photoshop; meaning we have all the cool features that Photoshop offers along with the 3D features to create really eye-popping 3D art. In this exercise we will take a look at an image that I created, and which was eventually made into the lenticular poster inserted in this book.

I will start first by showing how I set up the image to create the 3D elements. I began with the main CS5 letter of the image. Since there were only three letters I went ahead and made each letter on a separate text layer.

Step 1: Create a new square document. Again, a square format ensures that the center point of the 3D object in relation to the file dimensions is even. I set the first text layer with the letter C in a font called Eurostile Bold Extended and then chose a dark blue color for the color fill.
