Have you ever wanted to create a mockup of how your Graphic Design will look on the package it’s destined to be printed on? Throughout any designer’s life, either for yourself or for a client, you will work on a Graphic that needs to be printed out and applied to a physical object.
The hardest aspects of adding Text, Logos, or Graphics to any surface inside a photo is getting the perspective, Color, and Texture correct. Aaron will Guide you through a step-by-step process for making this tedious design task, both easy and phun.
Copy the Logo Onto Your Clipboard
Use Move Tool (V) to drag Logo onto Box document. Transform (CTRL/CMD + T) to Make Logo smaller, and fit box. Next, copy Logo onto clipboard by holding CTRL/CMD and clicking on logo thumbnail to select it, then hitting CTRL/CMD + C to copy the selection to the clipboard.
Create Perspective Plane
In the Vanishing Point Filter, click on the Create Plane Tool and place a point at each of the four corners of the box. The Filter will automatically connect these dots into a perspective Grid. Get it as accurate as possible, but don’t worry if it needs fixing – you can edit your points at any time.
Place Logo in Filter
Hit CTRL/CMD + V to paste the Logo (from your clipboard) into the Filter. Transform the image (CTRL/CMD + T) to make it the right Size for the box. Then, just click and drag it onto the plane, and it will automatically transform into perspective.
Blur the Logo for a More Realistic Look
After the conversion, go to ‘Filter – Blur Gallery – Tilt Shift‘, and adjust the settings to make your Logos look like they’re blurring into the Distance. Since it’s a Smart Filter, you can go back and change your blur at any time.
