Lesson Info

Class Introduction

My name is Jesus Ramirez. I'm an Adobe community professional. I'm probably most well known for my YouTube channel. The Photoshop Training Channel, one of the most popular Photoshop YouTube channels in the world. I've also worked as a graphic designer for over a decade. I'm an author for the Adobe Creative Cloud blog. I speak at a lot of industry related conferences and I'm here today to talk about 3D in Photoshop. In specific, I'm here to talk about how we can create 3D elements from scratch. And we're going to do so with several different ways. We're going to use images to create 3D elements. We're going to use paths and vector shapes to create 3D images. And we're also going to use luminance values to create 3D geometry. And the reason that you should be interested in this is so that you can enhance your graphic designer skills. If you're creating graphics in Photoshop, having 3D knowledge allows you to take your graphics to the next level. It opens up a whole new world of possibili...

ties. And by the end of this course, I think that you'll be able to create convincing realistic 3D elements that you created yourself and also apply them to different sorts of projects, whether it's photography, graphic design, illustrations, all kinds of things.

Class Description

In this class, Adobe Certified Expert Jesús Ramirez, founder of one of the most popular Photoshop YouTube channels in the world, shows you how to make your very own 3D elements – no experience required. You’ll learn to use the 3D features in Photoshop, in addition to using text, images, and paths to create 3D geometry from scratch.

Through a series of 3D projects, Jesus covers: 
  • Creating 3D text, adding texture and lighting 
  •  Using 2D images to create 3D Objects 
  • Working with Image Based Lights to generate reflections 
  • Applying Textures to 3D objects 
  • Using the pen tool to create 3D objects 
  • 3D Depth Maps with geometry to create effects such as a waving flag 
This class is filled with techniques, tips, and workflows that allow you to immediately begin using 3D features in Photoshop for your projects and will teach you to create 3D objects from start to finish.

This would be SO much better...if in a long form class to go a bit more in depth on all these concepts he's teaching. Great teacher, FANTASTIC material, but would be so much better over 2-3 days on all this!! Please bring him back for a LONG form class! This is a good start tho....

This is a class to purchase because there is so much rich information. So nice to have a master in Photoshop to show tips and tricks on creating 3D objects. Thank you Jesus for sharing.

This class is short but packed with information. I'm not going to be creating completely artificial scenes, but the ability to composite 3D objects into photographs and control the lighting and reflections really adds a valuable tool to my repertoire.
