I am a photographer with good knowledge of photoshop & illustrator. This time i have a task from my boss who needs high quality computer generated photos of our company products. he is not satisfied with camera result and needs something more lively and 3d like. I have basic understanding of vector based objects but i do not know how to achieve images like this:


enter image description here

Can somebody explain to me how can we draw images like this, and which tools are needed for that. I am also unsure whether these images are vectorized from camera taken photos.

    Those are most likely 3D renders, not vectors. – Manly Aug 5 '16 at 20:20

    Can I ask why the photos aren't 3D like? It might be a lot easier to teach you how to improve photos then to start all over with illustration or modeling+rendering. – Ryan Aug 5 '16 at 20:25

If you have your company products you have your company artwork. You do not vectorize a photo of your own products, you use the original artwork. You either:

1) Generate a pure 3D render from scrach and prepare the materials accordingly to the 3D object (unwrap it) https://www.blender.org/

2) Use some mockups, in this case a pile of toilet paper, and morph your original artwork to fit the perspective and add some shadows. You can use Ilustrator or Photoshop. Probably Photoshop in this case.

It is a simple matter of adding perspective and a bit of deformation on the sides. http://www.dummies.com/software/adobe/photoshop/how-to-use-puppet-warp-in-photoshop-cs6/

    your answer looks very spammy and you don't provide any info on your affiliation with the link. Please take a look at the help center if you need to know more about the site. – Luciano Aug 24 '16 at 8:13
