Hey Chris, I'm glad you found the information useful. As to the colors, I would say that your main colors need to come from the branding of the clients identity system, that is to say, if the site uses Orange and Blue, you should be using Orange and Blue (but not as the main colors). Remember that readability is one of the first issues, so color needs to guide the eye or reinforce information. Also, consider using tints/harmonies of the base colors to create a complementary pallet, and try to keep the main colors around 4-5. If I knew the colors I may be able to help more. Good luck! (^_^)

comment How can I get more efficient at designing tables for web in Photoshop?
There's a book you may want to look into reading: UI Design with Adobe Illustrator by Rick Moore, which may help you with design concepts (around Illustrator workflows) and maximizing your effort if you are thinking about using Illustrator for comps. Cheers!

Ctrl+U? Which OS/Browser are you using Johannes? (^_^)

Yes, but you could have used Cinema 4D, used a body mesh for the Shape Object then a MoGraphic function to fill the body with cubes, a Random effector to change the shapes of the cubes, then rendered it out... The smaller cubes/particles, were probably rendered as a second scene then composited in Photoshop... Just saying that Cinema 4D could also be a good answer... (^_^)

comment How do I shift/remap one range of colors to another in Photoshop?
That's a good way to do it, but be sure to mask off your Earth (and it's reflection) so that the shadow doesn't get remapped (and stays gray)... if you want it to stay gray. (^_^)

comment How to crop image with transparent border
There are two problems that I see, the first being the drop shadow, the second being the trim area. Trim normally works, but the drop shadow will be the issue. Do you want the outer drop shadow? Have you tried command+click on the initial vector shape (rounded rectangle) and then create a Layer Mask, apply it to a new folder and then move the original layer inside? This should compensate for the outer drop shadow (as it looks like you're using the drop shadow for the inner drop shadow area). Once you mask off the folder with the shape, you'll be able to use Trim (Transparent) properly. :)

comment Changing the extrusion opacity of 3D object in Photoshop CS 6 Extended
There is also the Texture Map which will allow you to create a Transparency Mask (which works like other Masks in Photoshop using Grayscale values to change to offset the opacity value). Use the Texture/Folder icon (next to the 43% Opacity value) to make a new texture, the Edit the Texture (and when you open/edit it you may want to use 3D > Create Painting Overlay > Wireframe to see where the extruded shapes UVs (paintable areas) are).

comment How can I extrude in 3d based on color
This could be done I believe since Photoshop CS 3 Extended, however it's even easier in Photoshop CS 6 Extended (which is part of the Creative Cloud). I'll post an example/answer below for you. Cheers!

comment How to make an image look like it's been printed
One more thing, most elements in the document are non-destructive, and the 3D scene, including all materials/textures, lights, shadows and shapes are completely non-destructive, so if you were unhappy with elements, such as the shadow, etc, you can tinker with them until you're happy and then render out the final results. Cheers!

comment How to make an image look like it's been printed
@RKS: You can do most of this in Photoshop CS 3-5 Extended, but it is much more daunting as it is not very easy to produce some of the effects that one would want. Photoshop CS 6 Extended makes the entire process much easier. ——— @ thomasrutter: Thanks for your valuable feedback (ahem). However, this was not designed as a final piece but as an example of how one can accomplish a task. Creating a larger starting file will resolve most of the resolution issues, as for the other issues/opinions, those are just that, opinions, but thank you for your critique. Cheers!
