Tutorial – SketchUp to Photoshop Basics

This tutorial covers the basic methodology for approaching entourage, texture and color edits to an exported SketchUp view using Photoshop. The tutorial looks at three different examples of views that need post production edits in order to be more technically accurate and visually appealing. These view are: 1. ground-level perspective view, 2. section cut, 3. plan view shadow study.

Some of the post production techniques covered here include: distorting textures to match perspective, adding people and shadows, adding and manipulating background sky textures, using brush presets for shrubs and clouds, adding atmosphere to give sense of distance, and much more.
