  • Portfolio Photographic look, program??

    Is there a program that will make 2D flat design piece jpegs into a photographic look?
    I'm a print advertisement graphic designer, not 3D CAD, and I would like to have my portfolio design pieces online look like they were taken by a camera shot as a photography image. For example, label for a bottle, a brochure w/ the shadows and curves.
    Prefer MAC base application.

    I'm sorry but you're a print graphic designer and you're not aware you could achieve this in photoshop?

      My suggestion would be to start here.

        but yes, it would be much more impressive to physically mock them up and actually shoot them.

          Your best bet for a convincing 3D effect is to get some good printouts of your work and mock them up as folders, packaging etc. Arrange the pieces on light gray background paper and photograph them. Any imperfections can be retouched in Photoshop. This way the things look real — they do not look flat because they have actual dimension.

          I have done this sort of thing using Photoshop but I think this is actually much easier and has better results.

            That was my whole point.

                thanks all but i thought maybe there was a program out there that would do that effect like Maya (which I can't afford).

                  You could set up a 3D Scene complete with lighting and camera effects and apply your work to the models.

                  You could create a "3D" mockup in photoshop or any other image editor.

                  You could actually create a physical mockup and take photos of that using an actual camera.

                  As far as I know, there isn't a program out there to magically create realistic looking mockups. If you don't have the resources to set up a table top "photo shoot", then perhaps you're well accustomed with Photoshop or a 3D program?

                    If you want it to look like you took photos of your work... why not just take photos of your work? Nothing will look more authentic than the real thing.

                        Blender is a free 3D program. 3D has quite a steep learning curve, so I don't know if a few bottle mockups are worth the amount of time you have to invest.

                          My guess is that in a few days an answer will appear, and that answer will point to the same commercial software as half the other times this exact same question was asked over and over again on other...

                          I don't think I'd worry too much about local sign ordinances and colors.
                          That is why logos can be created in black and white. If the community insists on a certain type of sign, it is easy enough...

                          When I tried to open the .ai file in Adobe Illustrator 10, it displayed an error which states, " Adobe Illustrator file format is having difficulties " What should I do for the problem?
