PixelSquid.com is geared specifically for expert level graphic designers. It offers stock imagery generated from 3D models, which provides designers with an advanced Photoshop file of an object at their selected angle that includes layered lighting, masking, shadow and depth layer control.
We believe that designers want to be creative and should not be limited by tools or technology. We think 3D is one of the most flexible and powerful mediums out there, and we want everyone to be able to experience that power – without having to learn any new tools.
Why are we so passionate about 3D? Well, PixelSquid is brought to you by the team behind TurboSquid, the world’s leading marketplace for 3D models. It’s been our mission for over 15 years to make 3D more accessible. With PixelSquid, we think we’ve made a significant step in that direction.
We started with fantastic looking 3D models, and we’ve used those to create design objects that can be used directly in Adobe Photoshop. Working on a design that’s missing something? Easily add one of our objects to your scene. Angle not matching up quite right? Spin your object directly in Photoshop to get it just right. We also give you layered PSDs that come with features that are possible because we source content from 3D. Forget having to mask out whole objects. Easily adjust reflection and shine. All of this happens in a workflow you already know. It requires zero 3D experience, and is incredibly fun to use.
We know designers want to learn new skills, and 3D is right near the top of that list. We can’t wait for you to try out PixelSquid and tap into the power and flexibility that comes along with 3D. It only takes a few minutes to get started. We’re looking forward to designing with you!
TurboSquid is the world’s leading marketplace for 3D models. We have been operating since 2000, and we’ve learned a lot about what it takes to build a successful stock marketplace. This not-so-new team has continued to look for ways to innovate, and getting beautiful objects into Photoshop felt like a natural next step. We have been hard at work on PixelSquid for quite a while now, and we’re very excited about making 3D easier to access for everyone.
