Key details

Key details

Learn to use Photoshop to create texture maps to use in your architectural visualisations, interior designs and similar projects.

Using the right texture maps in your projects shows your work in the best possible light.

This course teaches the use of Photoshop’s features and commands specific to texture-creation. You’ll create texture examples which can be translated into multiple areas of work.

Photoshop textures for 3D visualisations training is available on-request only, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group. We don’t currently offer scheduled (public) Photoshop textures for 3D visualisations courses.

We can host the training at one of our centres, or your venue anywhere in the UK.

The training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the type of textures you require for your rendered images.

Accredited Photoshop training

Armada is an Adobe Authorised Training Centre (AATC), accredited by Adobe to provide Photoshop training.

Expert trainers

Photoshop textures for 3D visualisations courses are hosted by experts in Photoshop, and the production of visualisations and rendered images.

Training guide and certificate

Because of the flexible ‘workshop approach’ adopted with this course, delegates take their own notes on the topics covered, rather than work through a set training guide.

Delegates receive an e-certificate confirming successful completion of an accredited Photoshop training course. Click here to see an example of the certificate you receive.

After course support

Following SketchUp training, delegates are entitled to 30 days’ email support from their trainer to help with any post-course issues.

Prerequisites

No prior Photoshop knowledge is required. You just need a good working knowledge of your operating system – Windows or iOS.

Photoshop version

Training can be based on any recent version of Photoshop to suit you, running on Windows or Mac.
