I need to depict a bunch of layers of an image similar to this:
What is this style called? Is there any photoshop plugins that can automatically create this kind of view?
Ok, here is how you do this. Prepare your image layers and all. Im going to be using a very simple image with colored squares.
Image 1: Original setup with simple shapes, this would work with any layered source however.
Select ALL your layers you intend to stack up, into isometric or perspective. I will be transforming to isometric .
Image 2: Layers after isometric transform
Then shift layers upwards with move tool (holding shift down and by hitting ↑ for precise control. Tip if you want a shadow or see where the layers started from duplicate them and hide the original guides are then easier to produce.
Image 3: Result with outlines of layer positions on layer below.
Decorate to your hears content. Done. Ideas for improvement:
I just came across a question that was marked as a duplicate of this one (which is mostly is) but it also included this image:
I just wanted to add that I found a useful web tool for quickly creating these angled images in nicely rendered device frames, it's called "MockUPhone".There's a good range of iOS and Android device frames available so I've found it to be a good way to create promo images for my app projects.
You need to give them an email address to send the files to, which also signs you up to a newsletter, but they seem pretty good. I have not been hassled with emails from them and I've been using the site a couple of months now.
Hope that's a helpful addition for anyone wanting to create this popular style of promo image.
