    Question Photoshop and vectors

    Hi guys,
    I've been asked to double check that Photoshop CS3 extended will allow the building of 3D images using vectors. This is for pupil use in that PITA course known as DIDA (PITA as nobody thought to let us know the software that would be needed when it was introduced last year!)

    As we're getting the design suite in September I don't want to get more software (free or otherwise) if we can use what we will have!

    Cheers!

    When you say 3D do you mean something like a cube or ball from vector shapes? If so then yes. See this vid for an example.

    YouTube - Drawing a CAR - Photoshop - 3D - Vector ?

    Also see here for using 3D Layers in Photoshop Extended.

    It sounds like you need a vector graphics editor.
    Wikipedia provides a list of vector graphics packages, free and commercial:

    illustrator is probably what you want

    Thumbs up

    Thanks both. The package we're getting comes with Adobe illustrator, so if Photoshop doesn't do what we want Illustrator will! For some reason when I checked what we were getting I didn't spot Illustrator, doh!
