Pixel Playground: Creating a 3D object in Photoshop

Published by | Friday, June 28th, 2013

This week’s Pixel Playground technique uses Adobe Photoshop 3D features to create a realistic 3D coin.


It is surprisingly simple to use the 3D features of Photoshop to create editable 3D objects that can be used in a variety of ways for your designs. In this week’s video, Bert starts with scans of a coin, and applies them as a texture to a 3D cylinder. To complete its realistic appearance, he creates a pattern for the ridge of the coin that allows you to position the coin at any angle that you may need.
