rendering cad elevations in photoshop
« on: April 21, 2015, 09:22:17 am »
I hardly ever use photoshop and it's been years since I've had to. I am currently working on an assignment where we are allowed to use a computer program to render our elevations from cad. How do I go about doing this? I do not have the patience or time to put into hand rendering and I know it can be done fairly quick in photoshop so I'd like to learn. I am still slowly practicing hand renderings, but for the sake of this assignment, I need something quicker. Thanks in advance.

P.S. I saw a post above this thread about renderings in photoshop but the tutorials were NOT helpful in that he was just doing the work, not showing what he was clicking on in order to accomplish the tasks he was doing on the screen. It was completely useless so please do not direct me to that thread.

Hi Aimee:

I"m sorry that you were so disappointed in the videos posted to answer a fellow student's questions. Please know that you are always welcome to ask for something specific for your needs....that way the responses will be addressing exactly what you are looking for. We are happy to provide whatever we can to help you with your requests.

Perhaps these videos may help you with what you want to do. They illustrate how to spot render in floor plan view using photoshop, but the same techniques can be applied to elevation view drawings.

Aimee:

You also may find this attachment file helpful to you. It was created by one of our full time faculty members as a quick, basic way to render. As with the other information, it shows rendering techniques for a floor plan using photoshop, but the same steps can be applied to elevations.

Thank you.
