How can you convert a 2D image into a rotating 3D image using Photoshop CS5 Extended? Can it be done?


I'm still a beginner to Photoshop and every time I look up how to do this, only tutorials for after effects which I don't have and would honestly like to avoid pop up.

I'd be really grateful if anyone could share with me any Photoshop techniques to get an effect similar to the two gifs I've attached to this question.

Or is after effects the only way?

If you want to do it in photoshop you need every frame in a layer and make an animated gif out of these layers.

It is alot easier to make those things in a 3d editing program, for instance the pack of cigarettes in a 3d program you can create a rectangle and put the textures on each side. In photoshop you would have to draw every frame.
