About This Class


In this class I’m going to teach you how to extrude text using Photoshop’s built in 3D capabilities. Chances are, you’ve probably never even touched these tools because they behave so much differently than anything else in photoshop. So I’m going to walk you through the basics of using the 3D tools to extrude text, position a 3D camera, light your scene and modify shadows, render your 3D text, and then add some fun effects to finish off your design.

Anyone can takes this class and easily follow along with my step-by-step instructions. But it does require photoshop CS6 or higher.

I can’t wait to see what you guys create.
