3D Warehouse

Adobe and Google have announced Photoshop CS3 Extended plug-in for the Google 3D Warehouse, which offers allows PS3E users to download free 3D content from Google's free online repository for 3D models and content from within the application. After downloading the plug-in and 3D models, users can access the textures applied to model surfaces, enhance them with Photoshop CS3 Extended and save them back in the standard COLLADA. The Google 3D Warehouse plug-in for Photoshop CS3 Extended for Mac OS X free download from the Adobe Labs Web site.

"We were happy to collaborate with Adobe on the Photoshop Extended plug-in for the Google 3D Warehouse. With this plug-in, users of Photoshop CS3 Extended can participate in the 3D Warehouse community, giving them the ability to search, store and share thousands of 3D models and content," said Mark Limber, product manager at Google. "The Google 3D Warehouse repository, combined with Photoshop CS3 Extended, allows creatives, architects, manufacturers and others to find exactly what they need to bring their virtual worlds and conceptual designs to life."

With the Google 3D Warehouse, users can also submit their own models to share within the community by uploading them from Google SketchUp into the 3D Warehouse. Models include buildings, houses, bridges, statues, sculptures, couches, cars, people, pets and more. There is also integration with Google Earth, so that if the model has a location, it can be viewed from a satellite image.
