Photoshop Product Photo Help Please

Hello all, 

 

Thanks for taking the time to read my post and hopefully help me out, I am new to photoshop and learning slowly but enjoying it.

 

I have a image that I purchased that I would like to overlay a design over and wrap the design around the product. Once I have the design around the product I find that it does not look realistic at all, I really wanted to make it look like I had the real shiny product in front of me.

 

Is there a way in photoshop to make the product look more real and shiny like the sun/shadows are reflecting of the product?..I hope that make sense. 

 

Seems good enough if just a text based design, but not so great with a full colour design.

 

I have added the product and a quick design (this is not a real design).

 

Hope someone can help.

 

TIA, KieronMJ-0070.jpgtestdesign.png

Hi Kieron.  You are in luck, because there's a fairly new addition to the Free Transform > Warp options that will help you with this.

I am going to make the text layer a Smart Object (always a good idea when using Free Transform, because you can edit the FT without losing the corner handle positions).

once you have the image on a layer and the design you want on a layer on top of the image layer, try changing the layer mode for the design layer. The mode that works best will depend on the colors you're working with but you might try starting with Multiply.

The outer handles adjust the height and width.

The top and bottom central handles adjust the curve

The middle handle adjusts the foreshortening toward the outer edges.

Remember this is a smart Object, so you can go back into Free Transform to adjust how it looks.

In this instance, the bowl has a limited depth of field, with the outside of the bowl showing a out of focus.

So I used Gaussian Blur to make the text similarly out of focus > Filled the mask with black to 'hide all'

And used Classic gradient White to Transparent to reveal the blur on each end of the text.

A tiny Bevel and Emboss helped make the text look painted on the bowl.

Tip: If you use a Bevel & Emboss with a value of zero (as in this case) check Contour, and se the Range to around 70% (or what fits your situation.

Hi Trevor,

 

Thank you for your detailed reply and pictures, I really do appreciate your help and guidance.

I find the text based designs easier to manage and get the re-life look that I was looking for but it was more of a full wrap around coloured design that I was having issues with blending via Multiply to get a good result, they kind of look more computerized and you can not really see the reflections and light on the product.

 

Is there a way to enhance the reflections or make it all look more shiny like I had taken a picture of the design on an actualy real product instead of actually having to take a picture of a real printed product?

 

Thanks again for your help! 

 

Kieron

To make things look shiny, add a highlight with full white. Set it to Screen, and reduce opactiy

A reflection is going to be difficult in this case, because the curveture is progressive.  You would use Free Transform > Warp > Arch, but the curve is progressive so you would not get a good match.

This is a total mess as I was working with the screen shots so it was a huge compromise, but what I did was copy the original bowl to a layer above the reflection, and nudge the reflection underneath it to hide the mismatched curve.  You'd reduce opacity of the reflection, and give it a tiny touch of perspective.  But this is not an easy example to start with.
