In this video you will learn how to trace a photo using freeform tool. We replicate everything from the photo including shape, colors and shadows.
Creating a shape yourself ensures that you can use the result is 100% customizable and you can use it for just about anything. For example you can show any object like world, globe, balls, people, text, etc. appearing from the box. You can show concepts like out of the box ideas etc. You can also fill the cardboard box with any texture to customize it.
We have used a cardboard box shape with straight edges as it is easier to trace.
You can have the eyedropper tool in Quick Access toolbar. Learn how to set it up here.
Below is the screenshot of the before (photo) and after (shape) that we create in this video. Can you spot any difference between the two?
