Creating a 3D Canvas effect


I saw an image posted by Harry in our Flickr group where he used a 3D canvas effect I thought I had to have a go at creating this effect. In these 2 videos we first take a look at the method I came up with for creating the 3D Canvas effect. Then in the second video we look at adding the shadow and background effect.

      Hello paulettefarrell, I’ve checked and in Photoshop 2015 CC (Mac) the Layers Styles Pattern Overlay is the same as in CS6 as used in the video. Have you tried clicking on the fx icon on the bottom you the layers panel for the Layers Styles?
      Hope this helps and please let me know how you get on

        Hi Davro, I’m very new to photoshop so I will struggle to follow anything but basic stuff. It seems to help thank you so I will carry on with it. When I clicked CTRL J at the beginning it copied the image but they are both called Layer 0 not background and Layer 1

          It doesn’t really matter what your layers are called paulettefarrell in fact it may help to rename the layers. Double click on the name of the layer, Layer 1 or 0 then when it’s highlighted enter a name of your choice, e.g. Reflection or Lefthand edge etc… that way when you look at the layers panel you’ll quickly see what is on each of the layers 🙂

            Hi Davro

            I managed to do it in the end. The tutorial was brilliant. Just a shame I can’t look at part 2 without paying. And thanks for the feedback. I’ve learnt so much more about photoshop.

        Davro, I managed to get as far as filling the background layer with white and it just wouldn’t happen. I tried pressing ctrl backspace and nothing happened. I tried Edit> fill but the fill option was shaded out….grrr

          If all else fails Paulette set the Foreground colour to White, Press D to revert to default then press X so as White is your Foreground colour. Now select the Paint Bucket tool which is in with the Gradient tool and click on the layer and that will fill it with White 🙂 Hope this helps David

    Hi Darvo,

    I have a bit of drama in creating shadow (part two of your video) for some reason I dont have linked layers as seen in your video- so i can not unlink it and on this stage where is I stopped and not able to go beyond this point. On your video I clearly see the unlinked layers and than they suddenly becoming linked which then again you unlink it Any idea please? I have Photoshop CC 2017 and PC.

    Thanks in advance
    Paul
