The PixelSquid plugin for Photoshop is an exciting new technology that provides the benefits of 3D elements without having to understand a 3D program or the 3D features in Photoshop. The plugin allows for the selection from a huge library of 3D objects that can be rotated within the Photoshop interface, but then inserted into your file as 2D elements without the hassle of render times!
The graphics are smartly incorporated as fully layered elements that allow for easy compositing by including separate layers for color, shadow, shine, reflection, etc. There are even special layers built in to make selections easy. This plugin is a digital compositor’s dream!
