Architectural Representation is key to a good architectural project understanding. Today, there are tons of 3d render engines that can make your project renders in less than a second, but we all know it can sometimes get very technical and confusing. Although it is important to learn all these programs we also need to know what other options we have. That is where Photoshop comes in. Some of you have probably heard that you can do anything in Photoshop! and it´s true. Well, you can do architectural renders using only photoshop, and here you are going to learn how this is done.
