3D DNA Strand with Photoshop Extended

Corey Barker shares a cool 3D trick for creating a DNA strand.


  • Wow, what an awesome tutorial. I’ve really gotta play around more with the 3D tools in Photoshop. This may just have been the push I needed.

    Thanks for the post!!

    Awesome! Now I just need to come up with an idea of where to use the DNA on my site! 🙂

    Problem with the tutorial: when i get to 1:57 of the time of the video following the tutorial, i don’t understand why the 3D menu is not active and then i can’t go forward to use the “repoussé”… Could you explain why? Thanks

      Hi, I don’t know if you have worked it out… happened the same thing to me, you have to go to preferences – 3d – check openGL, if it still doesn’t work probably you are working with CMYK and not with RGB. worked 4 me!

      Great Tutorial ☺

    This is awesome! I managed to get 2 ‘bars’ in the middle of the dna instead of just the regular one though ^^ Guess I’ll have to try working through that one again… Thanks for the tutorial~!!

  • Jay says:

    Same here Eve! I can’t get it to work as in the video.

    Where can I download the .psd file mentioned?
