And what exactly are you doing? You need to be much more verbose about the matetr and explain what exactly you are doing.
There is no difference in the student and the retail versions as far as features are concerned. They are same product in other words.
I'm trying to learn how to use the Repousse tool / feature (to do extruded text etc0 and have found one of many tutorials that give step by step instructions. So for example, the initial instructions are as follows:-
Step 1 - Open Photoshop extended and using horizontal type tool, type 3D using Impact font.
Step 2. Go to 3D > Repousse > Text Layer
I get as far as creating text and when I click on the 3D menu, the Repousse option is disabled, as are all the options except the 'auto- hide layers for performance'.
So not quite sure where to go from here. I've checked and 'OpenGL' is enabled.
Switch to the move/ select tool before invoking the 3D menu.
Hi again, have just trawled sites looking for answer and found a query very similar to mine - I was working in CMYK and apparantly switching mode to RGB enables Repousse tool.
Tried this just now and success. Can't believe that it was something so simple. Thankyou for taking the time to respond.
