How to Use Vanishing Point to Mocking up Designs in Photoshop

Hi there. I want to put this design on this wall. We're going to use an underutilized tool in Photoshop called Vanishing Point. Look at that moves around the walls, perspective is all pretty awesome. Little bit jumpy. But you can't beat it for perspective matching. Look at that. Alright, let's learn how to do that. Now in Photoshop to get started, we're going to open up to files from your 10 retouching folder. There's Vanishing 100.1 and two. The first one is a jpl and it's going to open without any hassle Because the 2nd 1 is an Ai file adobe illustrator. It's going to come up with this little import pdf box. Now in this case mine's defaulting to a 1164 I think that's the original size. This is something you might have to do is just depending on the image you're using. So try it first, whatever size, it comes. then you might have to resize it because if it's too big or too small, it's not going to look right, don't worry about for now, I've made sure it works perfect. And click OK. It...

's just a graphic that we I think we did this in the Illustrated Advanced course. If you're keen on illustrator and three D blobby text, you can go check out that course. So for this to work we need to be on Vanishing Point to let's go to select all and then just go to edit copy. We just gotta on our clipboard. We don't need this anymore. Back to vanishing .1. Let's go to filter and it's going to Vanishing Point. Vanishing Point allows us to create planes. So I'm going to draw out what I think is a square in here because Photoshop doesn't know. We have to tell it. We have to say I'm going to start there and kind of come down to about there. Have you picked? Just kind of follow the lines of the bricks and then come back. How far back you see that? I'm trying to line that line up. I'm getting way back here for me pic once and then coming up, can you see I'm trying to line up that blue line following the ridge of the bricks, which is surprisingly hard. I want that last one to be straight up and down. I think I'm there. Cool. Now it's a little hard to see because it's blue. Hopefully you can see it the way to test whether it works or not or whether perspective is Okay, so there's one of these white squares in the middle. Okay, so here's the first one, there's one at the end and somewhere in the middle, if I grab it and drag it down, you can see it's kind of following the brickwork if yours is wrong. Okay, so you get to the top here, I'm dragging the top middle one now. Okay, if I get to the top here, go slow. This program here. It's like a little mini program, like liquefy except this one crashes all the time. In my experience. It's an amazing tool that's been in there forever, but nobody uses it. So I don't think it gets much developer love. Anyway. Say that it doesn't quite line up like mine does. You can grab these corners and adjust them. What will end up happening is eventually it will say mm you said they're wearing red. If it goes red, it says there is no chance that that is a square wall that's going not even close, like that's physically impossible. There's a twisted wall and it goes yellow goes, you're kind of close to two a wall. Okay, Whereas it goes blue. It says, okay, that's a feasible flat shape that I can work with. Blues. Good. Once you've got it, you can either click okay and go off and copy that graphic. We've already done that, right? We went edit select all, copy all we need to do now is go to a paste. Weirdly, we can't use the long version or in this kind of like Vanishing World, he's going to use your shortcut on my Mac. It's command V on a pc. It's control V. Here. You get this one with the dots around the outside. Just click it, hold it and drag it and hopefully come on freaking out, drag it again. Alright. And it's started working. I'll leave that in there in the edit because that's just the way Vanishing Point works. It's a bit jumpy and clunky. It's really cool though, awesome. So I can slide this down and I know it's gonna kind of match the perspective. Very cool. Alright, when you get into the position you might want to resize it. I made sure that our files that we're working with in this class work fine with it. You might find this image way too big and you can get around, it's probably easier going back into the other file and re sizing it before you copy it. But if you want to you can over here there's a transform option, this tool here and it grabs the corners. I can help shift and I can shrink it down and kind of get it to all the size that I want. Don't be afraid to zoom out. Sometimes the transforms end up being way off screen, so zoom right out. You might have to see your transform and handled way out here when you're happy with it. Let's click. Ok? And yeah, it's kind of fused in there. Alright, so we've done it the quick and dirty and bad way. Why? Because it's kind of fused to the background so I'm going to undo and I'm going to show you some cool tricks. Let's go a little bit further first. Let's make a new layer, make sure that layer is selected. There's nothing on it. Go back into filter Vanishing point. Okay, let's drag out our wall again. Okay, my first wall. Not a success. This. Here's no way Jose. I'm going to drag it down to the floor. It's getting close this one here should give us a good indication you can see it's not quite lining up the floor. Awesome, Drag The Top one Up. Not quite perfect either. Alright, so once you have a good around, you can add another plane to do that. You're holding down the command key on a Mac or the control key on a Pc and you're looking for any of these middle options, not the corners. Okay, so there's a middle. We'll do the floor next to hold down the command key, click hold and drag out and you'll see, hey go on. Got a floor as well. We'll do this back wall as well. So I'm going to click on this. You got to kind of click on them to get them to activate. So just click on them. I'm using this tool up here. It defaults to that tool. So I want this back plane, see this little white handle here, hold down the command key again or control key on a Pc and drag it out and you can see this one here just didn't quite work. Okay, So it's just not matching the angle and it's not that this isn't a square wall. It might not be, but it probably is. It's probably just the angle of the lens. We're just really close and the lens is doing some weird stuff to it so we can swing these little planes while I remember. And these are obviously good for doing walls but really good for like book covers. So you're doing an e book, okay. You can do the front cover and the spine and you can dump your mock up onto it and it kind of folds itself around. But let's swing this guy here. So it's a, it's the same thing. You grab the middle handle and just hold down the other key, which is, which is option on a pc. It is old and just click hold and drag it. Go slow. Go very, very slow. You can see it's a bit weird. Okay, go super slow if you find like moving all over the place. Yeah, it does. Okay, so I'm swinging it and you can see left and right kind of swings it like a door and I'm trying to get my wall to line up with the bricks. Okay, so it's actually gonna have to swing around quite a bit. It's really finicky. Okay, I'm a pro done this loads and I'm still finding it quite tough here. Cool. So I've swung it around close to my books, it's spreading pretty good. So holding nothing down now. Just grab that edge that stretches it out and it goes off into the distance if it needs a bit more swinging, hold down the option key on a mac and a Pc and go mad because it's really tough. You can do this one. this is probably just as finicky. Oh man. Okay, little trick is just click in there and use your up and down arrows. Okay to get it close, I'm happy with that. So now when we paste, just like before I've copied it already, before we come in here, you can go back out, you can click ok, go and copy it. Select or copy, resize it. If it needs to be come back in here, go to select filter, vanishing point and our blue lines are back, go to paste and then you can click hold and drag. The cool thing about it now is once it stops freaking out, come on, here we go. It will go hopefully around the wall, awesome. Huh? Sorry about the pixel ization. It'll go once we hit return it's just kind of trying to do its thing. Super cool, I love it. Alright, so I am going to go to here, I'm gonna put this on the wall, I'm gonna transform it, I'm not gonna transform maybe we're there. Okay. The big trick there was because we used a separate layer, you can see now it's on its own layer and that is the vanishing point. Before we go. I'm gonna show you how to how I would in this case, mock it up a little bit better. Nothing to do with the vanishing point anymore. Just tips some tricks. That's what I first do is with this layer selected, I'd work on my blending modes. Who remembers the shortcut for blending modes. It's make sure when you move tool, otherwise it doesn't work. Hold down, shift and tap the plus key on your keyboard. So I'd work my way through here and just see if it is anything that worked for me. I'd be like already practiced, Okay. And I know that there's nothing. Okay, so what I did was I left it at normal and what you can do is I want to load this as a selection. Okay, there's a trick member. I can hold command and click the thumbnail and they just load. Everything on that layer is a selection. If you're on a pc, it's control and just click the thumb. Now I'm gonna turn off that layer because what I want to do is on my background layer and a copy and paste because what I did was is I just want a chunk of this and what I wanted is all this pointing in here. Okay, the group that goes between the bricks? I don't know if it's called pointing, but the cement that goes between them, their white. I want them to be actually black. So I just inverted it. How do you invert stuff? It's under here. I know it's control I adjustments, invert there, it is there. Cool. So I've inverted it just so that that's black, I don't need it to be blue. So I'm going to command shift you which makes it black and white. That's probably in here to command shift you there. It is there de saturate why? I'm just looking for shadows. Right? I just want the lights in the darkness to apply to this thing here, which is just way too strong. Like it's crystal clear. It's perfect. I don't want that. So what I'm gonna do is turn them all back on. I'm gonna have this guy above him and then I'm gonna find a blending mode for this to blend into the color, which is then on top of the wall. And it's not like mm hmm. It looks kind of cool. Multiply depends on what you were looking for. Okay, if you're presenting this to a client as a mock up, you might just leave it full color. Like look how awesome it's going to be. But if you're looking for faking it, that one's kind of cool, hard light, linear light luminosity. I think I'm happy with luminosity. Okay. And luminosity. I'm going to lower the opacity of luminosity. Just so that it's there without destroying it too much. And that's the way I went about it. But you might do as well. Is that you'll find that this thing here has a good bit of grain in it whereas my version here doesn't it's like perfect because it's victor. So with that layer selected. We might add a bit of fake noise. So make sure it is a smart object. So we can turn it off later on, filter noise ed noise. I was gonna where is he decide how much of this? I want lots of noise. Very nice. Probably want, I'm just guessing but adding a bit of noise to try and match maybe the ice, so or the kind of bit of the background can help. Another thing that can help is adding a corresponding noise to the background. It's kind of destroying the background just to blend it in. But that's what I'm looking for. I'm looking for it to look realistic ish. So smart object to select it and I'm going to go back into my noise. I'm gonna use this one here because it should apply the exact same noise that I did last time cooking. And it's just so that they kind of match a bit more destroying the background. I know, but I think there's a more consistency across it. All right. And that is mocking up our design using the hidden treasure that is finishing point. Let's get into the next video

Great class, but outdated PS version. It was confusing sometimes. Some tools are not in PS anymore and more tools have been added which is not included in the course.
