How to create a gallery wrap wrapped 3D box look

I've seen on this site that obviously they are creating in photoshop and arn't real boxed canvases. I just want that look this site has done it http://www.weddingphotosoncanvas.co.uk/

I have photoshop CS2 and just wondered if there was an action that would do this for me, I seem to remember ages ago that there was but can't find it in my old actions.

3D 3-D box art tutorial link: http://www.spoono.com/photoshop/tuto...rial.php?id=26

Google: 3d box software

...for Photoshop plugins and stand alone programs to do this type of thing. They are easy to use and are much more flexible than actions.

Before tackling the task of crafting an action for this effect I had to see if I could reproduce it manually. I used jakita's (aka Judy) lovely interpretation of "Bara" to experiment. It was frustrating, but I think I got pretty close. (sorry about the banding in the background...a downside of compressing to 100KB)

For an action one would need to settle in advance on a starting image dimension, e.g., 8"x10" and angle of placement.

Never mind. Just looked at the target objective again. There's still a lot of work to be done to achieve that effect.

Here's another shot, this time with edges (sort of) bending around the corners. The lines don't quite match up, but I'm making progress.

You've just about got it....well done!!!!

Phil - I've seen you tenaciously hang in there posing this question before, here at RP and other Forums. Looks like Danny is coming up a winner to help you out.

Phil, like Neve, I've seen your question around, and I'm so glad Danny took it upon himself to solve it. Danny, your Bara canvas looks amazing! I hope details or an action or something is in our future

I temporarily marked a point near the lower right corner of the image. This point is a corner of four rectangles: the main face, the two small sides and a deleted lower right rectangle.
  • I selected the main face, inverted the selection and lowered the luminosity of the sides.
  • Then I selected the lower right rectangle and deleted it.
  • I selected a side rectangle, reduced the short side by 50% and edit>transform>skewed to 45 degrees (degrees of skew are shown in the info box). I did the same with the other side. The two sides should meet on the diagonal.
  • I reduced the size of the image.
  • I then used edit>transform>perspective to make one side of the box "closer".

Does somebody know how to make the edges rounder? I could make very slim transition rectangles. That seems to be what they did on the web site.

Edges

Well I selected the edges and blurred them. I used the polygon Lasso tool and then used g blur.

This is not quite what you want. But the method may help.

3D Product Box
Here's a great little toy from Andy Purviance. It creates a small icon—the example is full size—with your favorite photo packaged in a box against a white background with a shadow.

Hi Phil.
I found a way very similar to yours that does not blur details.
Instead of darkerning the sides directly in the first step, I would create a separate soft light layer, fill it with 50% grey and darken the side areas on that layer. I would then blur the layer to give soft edges.

I'm too lazy to redo the example from scratch, but I hope the idea is clear anyway.
