I’m a firm be­liever that you shouldn’t purely rely on soft­ware to do the work for you. A good artist should be able to un­der­stand and con­struct the ba­sic prin­ci­ples of draw­ing, in­clud­ing per­spec­tive. How­ever, there are some use­ful tools and plug-ins avail­able for Pho­to­shop that can help speed up the process.

Among some of the more use­ful tools I’ve found, the Per­spec­tive Tools v2 for Pho­to­shop CC-CC2015 pur­chasable ex­ten­sion has proven to be valu­able. It helps to eas­ily cre­ate per­spec­tive and par­al­lel grids in sec­onds. Mainly us­ing the Pen Tool, the user can draw a cou­ple of lines, click the Grids but­ton and the ex­ten­sion works out per­spec­tive grids in­stantly. Per­spec­tive Tools v2 also of­fers a va­ri­ety of ad­di­tional fea­tures, in­clud­ing the abil­ity to bend and warp tex­tures per­fectly to any per­spec­tive grids you may need.

If you’re look­ing for a pow­er­ful yet easyto-use per­spec­tive tool in Pho­to­shop then look no fur­ther. You can get hold of the ex­ten­sion at http://ifxm.ag/per­sp­tools.

With this im­age, I wanted to show how quickly you could place in tex­tures us­ing Per­spec­tive Tools v2. It’s a use­ful ex­ten­sion to have, so give it a try.
