5 Tips on how to create better visualizations with archviz in Photoshop

There’s a growing demand for architectural visualization and the expectations are growing higher and higher. Individuals and companies are now providing high standard outstanding visualizations but it is evident that some few industry players are doing a bad job at it. Here are 5 tips to stay ahead of the game when it comes to using archviz:

Use render elements

Using a series of render elements on your design will save a lot of your time when it comes to meeting deadlines and finishing up on your architectural animation or still design. Incorporate render elements in your work since they come in handy when time starts running out.

Use height markers to create accurate heights for 2D people

When it comes to using archviz, it is usually safest to use people markers to give the image a look of proper scale. Otherwise, the entire look of the visualization will seem like it’s not the right scale.

Use photographic shops rather than modeling them from scratch

While some may prefer modeling everything from scratch including shops, it is recommended that you use photographic shops as these are readily available and will save you a great amount of time. The important thing is to make the choice depending on the intensity of the project and decide on the elements you have to model from scratch and those that you can use photos on. The archviz render allows you to play around with models so you can decide the best option to go for.

Use varied materials and blur the people

The effect that will help your visual image appear more real and convincing when using Photoshop in archviz is using random variations in texture, color and appearance in your design. Different tiles or bricks and color of grass and trees helps pull in a more real-life effect on the image. Also blurring people allows your buildings to have a better punch of color on them which creates a more believable effect.
