Adobe Photoshop has become an industry standard product visualisation tool, used for creating 2D photorealistic images of just about anything. In this tutorial I will show you techniques used to achieve high quality results when using Photoshop in this way. Unlike most of my tutorials, I hold your hand and walkthrough each step, this one will act as more of a guide, teaching you the techniques and the reasoning behind these techniques. The tutorial will be based on creating an iPod Nano, starting nothing, with some previous knowledge of Photoshop, or having completed all my other tutorials, you should have more than enough skills to get a result like mine or better. These steps would be exactly the same as for other products of this nature like phones and cameras.
Before you start make sure you either have an Ipod Nano or a photograph of an Ipod Nano in front of you. For this tutorial it may also be helpful to download the PSD file to examine it more as I won't be going into every detail.
