How to create a winter scene in Adobe Photoshop CC using Adobe Stock images and a 3D object from PixelSquid.com

 

 

SantaIn this tutorial I will show you how you can create a winter scene in Adobe Photoshop CC using images from Adobe Stock and 3D object from PixelSquid 

Adobe Stock images I downloaded for this tutorial:
FILE #:  45012599

3D object I downloaded from PixelSquid

 

First of all I downloaded two images from Adobe Stock website. I downloaded those files as preview files and after I tried them out I licensed them directly within Adobe Photoshop CC:

Right Click on a image in your library panel you want to license > License Image
