By adding depth and conveying movement, you can better communicate the layout of architecture and interior design, the concept of new products, packaging and branding, or even trade show presentations. And since you can see them come to life earlier in the process, working in 3D imaging will save time and money when revealing flaws and improvement opportunities.
Building in 3D is as easy as taking a 2D layer and adding 3D properties, then converting it to a 3D space. Once you’re there, you’ve got options to change render settings, add lighting, and merge it with other 3D layers.
Whether you want to see what the prototype completion, presentation booth, or product packaging will actually look like, Photoshop can take you there. Here, we’ll get you started by showing you how to turn 2D text into 3D. Try it out with our steps below.
If you’re getting ready to dive deeper into a 3D rendering, prototyping, or concept mockup project, be sure to check out Adobe Dimension, a brand new 3D app from Adobe that’s included with your Creative Cloud subscription. With the ability to add texture, materials, lighting, and settings elements to 3D models, Adobe Dimension brings 3D techniques into your creative process without requiring 3D expertise. And with Dimension’s Render Preview window, you can see the final render and edit as you go, allowing you to create more freely.
