In this Photoshop tutorial we’re going to step outside my usual Photoshop Only philosophy and use the 3D rendering power of Adobe Illustrator to create a cool little 3D text effect. Don’t worry noobs, you don’t need to know anything about Illustrator, as usual I’ll coach you through the whole process.
The new Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended is about to be released, it was announced already and among the new features there is one really special that is the Repoussé. This new feature or tool will allow us to create 3D objects extruding texts, selections, paths and layers masks. It’s a really powerful tool and I had the chance to try it and now I will share with you one of my first experiments with it.
Icons are an important part of most interactive and web design. While icons are small, they can often be challenging to create. In today’s tutorial we will demonstrate how to create a download folder icon using different shapes and reflections in Photoshop. Let’s get started!

This tutorial will show you how to create a photo realistic image of Apple’s newly released iPhone4. Hopefully, by the end of it you will have something extremely close to the real thing, which for the few who don’t own the iPhone4 (like me), may be as close as we’ll ever get. Before we get started it might be a good idea to pull up a reference image from the web just so you know where everything goes and the size of some of the features. But otherwise, Enjoy!
