Adobe Releases Photoshop Plug-in for Google 3D Warehouse

Adobe and Google Logos

If you’re a Photoshop CS3 Extended owner, there’s a free plug-in you can download courtesy of Adobe Systems and Google, Inc.

The plug-in allows you to access the Google 3D Warehouse, an online repository for 3D models and content, which is also free. Users can query and download content from G3DW directly which can then be placed, manipulated and used in composites with the new 3D tools in Photoshop CS3 Extended.

Users can also submit their own models to share within the community by uploading them from Google SketchUp into the 3D Warehouse. Models include everything needed for a 3D world, including: buildings, houses, bridges, statues, sculptures, couches, cars, people, pets and more. If the model has a location on earth, such as a building in New York City, you can also download and view it in Google Earth.

The plug-in is available for free download from the Adobe Labs website.
