Using the Vanish Point Filter tutorial


My latest Photoshop tutorial is available at and it’s about using the Vanish Point Filter to mockup a business card.

There are many instances when you will want to simulate or mock up how a design would look printed out and photographed. It might be for a portfolio piece, it might be for a client to help them imagine a concept design or it might just be for your own satisfaction at seeing how your work is going to look to the end user.

In this technique we'll use a bit of perspective and the very useful Vanishing Point filter to achieve some great results. I will apply this technique to Collis' Sample Calling Card from a previous tutorial.

The Vanish Point Filter is one of the most useful filters in Photoshop. It can be used in so many ways and it’s very hard to find good references showing how to use it. So it’s definitely worth checking it out.

By the way, I will publish a tutorial showing how to achieve the same effect without using the Vanish Point filter for those who don’t use Photoshop.
