  1. Hey. Lovely tutorial; it’s what I’ve come to expect from you! Fab. I was thinking it could be possible to make the image of the girl a 3D postcard and not use the layer mask – just position the lights around her, but I now see how that might not work.
    Good idea though?
    thanks!
    Chris

  2. Great Tutorial.
    BTW., Corey, your last tutorial “Reverse restoration” is not working! The movie shows “3 D background effects” instead of “Reverse restoration”!

  3. PS.: “Reverse restoration” sows the right movie, if you select it on the right side under “popular”, but not if you select it from within the selection on the left side (the big preview window)

  4. Muchas Gracias por este excepcional tutorial, siempre visito tu pagina y me parece realmente genial, espero sigas asi para que cada dia podamos aprender mas y mas con las cosas tan bonitas que haces, un saludo desde españa, espero entiendas este mensaje jaja !!!!!

  5. Great tutorial Corey!

    please could u show us how to do nested 3D objects to create logos like the sony ericsson ball.

    also was wondering if there is anyway of adding more native shapes to the 3D menu?

    Thankyou :o )

  6. Very cool Corey

    I dont see the tool 3D in my picture, what the option to see it, I just see it on the tool bar at the left.

    Thanks!

  7. Great job with the tutorial

    i was having some trouble with the 3D because of not having the X and Y axis so i was unable finish, do you think you could help me out with finding it.

    Thanks

    God, i wish i could pick your brain..you are a real genius… my Photoshop skills skyrocks since two years because of you.. I never miss one of your video..especially on NAPP

  10. A very nice tutorial – I have just one problem after downloading the trial version of Photoshop CS4 extended ( which I will certainly buy ) using the 3D tool.

    The coloured arrows you use to scale the 3D object are not present in the working area and saving the texture is not generating an “individual” file.
    Where do I have to change the settings?

  11. For the 3D widget go to Photoshop > Preferences > Performance (Mac OS) or Edit > Preferences > Performance (Windows). on the right hand side it has “GPU settings” it says enable OpenGL drawings tick it and you should be able to get the widget

  12. I have a question. When i want to drag down the cylinder for it to be smaller- it dont show the axis widget. I have window 7. Not a mac. how can i drag it down?
    Please reply. Thanks. {;

  14. You ae something else Corey! What a delightful tutorial! Thank you for applying yourself to excellence in using Photoshop so you can teach us.

  15. If you dont have access to the widget to create a more disc like shape with your 3D shape, simply select “scale the 3D shape” and lower the size of the “z” scale box. something around 0.26 or more.
