Part 12. Just for Fun > Achieving a 3D Effect

Achieving a 3D Effect

Three-dimensional transformation opens up all kinds of creative possibilities. Think of the image you start with as being printed on a rubber sheet that you can wrap around a cube, a sphere, or a cylinder.

With the object you want to transform selected, choose Filter, Render, 3D Transform.

Choose a transformation shape, such as Cylinder (or press C).

Click and drag to size the shape in the 3D Transform preview window.

NOTE

Repositioning Vertices

Choose a selection tool; then click and drag any vertex (movable point on the shape) to change the outline of the cylinder–to make it look like a vase, for example.


Click the Trackball tool (or press R). (You can also use the Pan Camera tool or press E.)

Click and drag to adjust the effect in the preview window.

Click OK. The transformed object appears in the active image window.
