Wrapping label around bottle using 3D tool. CS5

Hi,

I come across what appears to me a task. I have done retouching but I I slowed down at wrapping label around the bottle. Bottle is in perspective and at the angle. I have tried to use free transform tools but it doesn't do a good job. Separate letters looks a bit lose. So I thought to use 3D tool just can't find a simple tutorial on how to simply wrap label around cylinder and bring it on my desired image. What seems to be an easy job for me turned into a challenge. Logo goes all the way around the bottle . Here is a cropped screen shot of the image. Basically I am looking for step by step tutorial on 3d in Photoshop CS5 whether video or to read it doesn't really matter.
Many thanks .Tomas

Look for tuts on vanishing point and/or displacement maps

http://planetphotoshop.com/vanishing-point.html this should do the trick

Re: Wrapping label around bottle using 3D tool. CS

FWIW make a print of the label (B/W and flat) and wrap it round any bottle or tube more or less in scale to the product. Take a quick snap at the same orientation as the model shot and that will give you a good reference for angle and distortion. Use that as a guide to warp the logo into position. Warp and Shear will do it with patience. Heck, if its a flat colour logo just make a mask from your ref pic. Don't force it to work in one hit; sometimes you need to split the image to get the subtlety of curve. If you have a load of them to do get a mate with a 3d package to warp a logo for you!

Re: Wrapping label around bottle using 3D tool. CS

Hi everyone,

Many thanks for coming to rescue me.
Amica vanishing point doesn't give me that fluid control on the spherical objects. I am able to create logo on cylinder in 3D but can't work it out how to get rid of cylinder and leave only nicely wrapped logo. I also look for options of how to control the size of the 3D object and how to adjust the text inside 3D tool. I am getting closer but still to go.
Repairman. I have also tried to do letter by letter wrap etc. I know it is painful but it doesn't give me desired results. I have to wrap in total 3 bottles. I want to learn how to do it 3D so any time am able to go through it a few minutes.
Thanks Guys
