Pics, You're Perfect! for DAZ Studio 4

Step-by-Step Guide to Converting 2D Images to 3D Resources

The purpose of this tutorial is to demonstrate how to use digital images that you feel are picture perfect as your own resources within DAZ Studio for your projects. We know the title is “Pics, You’re Perfect!”, but we like to pronounce it as “picture perfect”.

Most, but not all, of the digital images you will deal with are from the new age of high resolution digital photos that can be taken with a camera or smart phone. We will demonstrate how to use these images to create new textures with transparency and use these directly within DAZ Studio. We will also demonstrate the benefits of using scanned images of items that are the right shape and size to be scanned with digital flatbed scanners.

This tutorial includes 5 free reduced resolution versions of images from the MR-Pix RF Resource Image Packs that have been used for each demonstration. You will not need any digital images to get started.
