Photoshop Compositing Templates for Dummies

Photoshop Compositing Templates for Dummies?

This was today’s challenge. To take someone else’s Photoshop composite artwork… flat artwork, and turn it into a template… (a word I shudder at)… as 3D artwork where both the text and the colourway are still editable by a Photoshop novice… with reflections that update with the main images.

I didn’t think it could be done

Well, I took on the challenge and half way through concluded it couldn’t be done, but there is nothing like a challenge! By using multiple layers of Photoshop Smart Objects I arrived at the solution… complex for sure and as templates go, at 54Mb it’s not lightweight, but I really think it’s going to work. I can use it… my novice client is testdriving it tonight, fingers crossed they can work it like I can.
