          Not quite sure what you're asking...


          First off, what version of Photoshop?


          For Photoshop CC for example you could, once you have your text layer current, choose 3D - New Extrusion from Selected Layer.


          Then you'll be working in the 3D environment, where you can do all sorts of things to the extruded shapes.

            I'm working in PS CC. I did exactly what you replied and still no prompt in

            the 3D tool bar.My computer is a I Mac 24 in..  Perhaps it needs a video

            card.This is the Graphics it contains.


            Chipset Model: ATI,RadeonHD2600


              Type: GPU


              Bus: PCIe


              PCIe Lane Width: x16


              VRAM (Total): 256 MB


              Vendor: ATI (0x1002)


              Device ID: 0x9583


              Revision ID: 0x0000


              ROM Revision: 113-B2250F-219


              EFI Driver Version: 01.00.219


            Is this enough.

              Ah, now I see the issue.  You need at least 512MB of video RAM to use Photoshop 3D.

                  Someone else will have to advise you on iMac capabilities...  I'm not familiar with the system.
