How to make furniture images 3d

Posted: July 27, 2009
I'd like to take photoshop/jpg photos of furniture and make them 3d ish so I can rotate them and place them in photographs at realistic angles. Is this possible? Is there a program that would let me take a photo which has been isolated, say just the couch, then turn it into a 3d image which can be manipulated in terms of size/angle etc? I'll be dropping them into actual photos of empty rooms.

Thanks in advance!

There are programs that can do it quite well with very simple objects like buildings. But the models will be properly textured only from the sides visible on photo. From what I know this technology is not yet mature.

Here are some sites that may offer this kind of products or services:

http://www.3dsom.com - from what they show in their examples this seem to be a nice photos to 3d models creation software.

http://www.photo-to-3d.com/model.html - this is a free service that will allow to Create your own 3D-Model from photos.

http://www.enlighten3d.com - are also working on a program that allows to create 3d models from a series of photos.

http://www.photomodeler.com - PhotoModeler is used successfully wherever 3D models and measurements from photos are required

http://www.canoma.com/ - Canoma is Mac/Win software that allows fast creation of photorealistic 3D models from one or more photographs. The models are geometrically very simple, and their purpose is not to replace any CAD or detailed 3D model, but to augment it, for example with realistic 3D context or to allow very fast 3D prototyping. But canoma was bought by Adobe so they don't sell their software anymore, they advice to look for it on ebay.

Yeah, "photo-to-3d" is my preferred site. I've been using it many times. But still, it depends on the quality of your photo. Try using a high definition camera to get the best result.

Is there a way to put these 3d models on website such as on a furniture products page? That would be awesome if you could. I have never used photoshop for 3d work before. My website is listed below if anyone has ideas in ways to improve it too.
