Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"There isn't really any comprehensive documentation about using 3D that comes with Photoshop and what is possible to do with it. This book definitely fills that gap and hopefully inspire people to come up with new ways of utilizing the technology. For new users, they will probably have this book close to them as they try to make sense of 3D. When they are done, most artists can expect to have learned how to use 3D for a final 2D graphic layout. This material would come in handy for anyone making graphics to advertise their film work via posters or graphic designs for the web. As the technology progresses, I hope we can look forward to more offerings for experienced 3D artists both in future versions of Adobe Photoshop and books like 3D in Photoshop."—Microfilmmaker Magazine
