3D Box - Template

This is a Photoshop template, using so called "smart objects". It is easy to replace the front, side and top of the box with other graphics. You need Photoshop CS or CS 2!

- Select a layer you want ro replace (front, top, side)
- Open menu: Layer > Smart Objects > Edit Content
- Replace the graphic with your own file (with copy/paste), close it and save it

Let me know, if you use it :-) It is free for private and non-profit use. For commercial use please contact me.

wow... This is awesome. I tested it, and there are a few things I would prefer to be different, maybe you should make a tutorial on those "smart objects" but you might've already, I still haven't mastered the vector objects in photoshop.

I'm gonna go check your gallery now.

thanks. there is not much to say about smart objects... they are layers with some extra features an limitations:
-disort only as parallelogram, you can't move one corner
-stretching, rotating for several times does not affect the image quality
-you can always change the source image and it will changed in it transformed state

create a smart object layer: layer > smart object >group into new smart object
