3D Logo Effect
3D Logo Effect

Here's the latest tute posted in the "Forum Tutorials" board folks! A nice effect for a logo project perhaps, of even a Web site. Lots of example pics and easy instructions. Try it!

Real 3D Type -- using Layer StylesReal 3D Type -- using Layer Styles
Unlike other 3D type effects, this one is a bit different in that it creates 3D type from a 'wide angle' perspective; an effect usually created by 3D programs. This particular effect is VERY simple to achieve in Photoshop though, specifically because of the new "Layer Style" filters found in PS6 & up. It's a great example of just how powerful these filters can be if used creatively.

Everyone has a use for this type of effect sooner or later. It's very simply to do, looks great, and can add some spice to your image and photos. Try it!

I highly recommend you all check this out. It's a great concept, that can benefit every Photoshop user. But it needs people power to make it go, so get over there and help make this work for you.

An unbelievable program that renders "photo-realistic" scenery & landscapes! The above image is just a small sample of what this program can do once you're familiar with it. BUT... it's not a huge or complicated program and almost immediately you can create some very realistic pictures. Landscapes, clouds, water... it creates it all! And to add to the excitement, at this point in time the program is free for non-commercial use!
