Do you enjoy a bit of friendly competition? Do you need to polish-up on your Photoshop skills? You can do both by downloading and playing LevelUp for Photoshop! LevelUp for Photoshop is a “game of missions” that will allow you to earn points – the more points you earn the better chance at winning prizes like Amazon gift cards and a chance to win a one-year membership to the Adobe Creative Cloud! Heck, you also get the added benefit of learning more about Photoshop!
But you better hurry…because you must finish the game by midnight Pacific time on June 30, 2012, to be eligible for the Creative Cloud drawing.

What is even more amazing is that you can find the images using a simple Internet search (keywords: Jupiter, surface, map) and wrap them around 3D objects created in Photoshop!
This makes for a great student project.

In my next tutorial I will show you how to export the 3D layer to an Acrobat PDF file. This will allow mom, dad, or another student to view and manipulate the 3D object using the (free) Acrobat Reader.
