We are going to dig into Photoshop's 3D features from a creative designer's perspective and create some outrageous eye-popping 3D graphics all right inside Photoshop CS4. While a basic understanding of 3D is helpful, you don't need to be a 3D expert to take full advantage of these features. So strap in, this is going to be one heck of a ride!
