*NOTE: This upgrade path no longer exists.
The original Men’s T-Shirt Templates was the debut Template Pack back in August 2008. In the process of making two more Template packs & an Advanced Hoodie Design Package, we learned a few new tricks about how to create fantastic photorealistic apparel mock-ups. Now, six months after the initial release, we’ve integrated those features into T-Shirt Templates version 2.0!
Quite a bit. Each shirt has more advanced shading layers such as highlights & color-sensitive shadows. These shadows and highlights are not just part of the shirt, but applied to your design during the mock-up process to make it appear truly ‘printed’.
Thanks to a tip from Jimiyo, we updated & streamlined the masking process using clipping masks. Now it’s really as simple as pasting your design onto the “Your Art” layer – no hiccups or locked layer masks to worry about.
We also added preset material colors that are optimized with subtle color variations to look real. You can see in the screen shot there are now added optional lighting & vignette effect layers for extra photographic realism.
Finally, we added three “new” composite shirts made by layering the shadows from several shirts together. They’re my new favorite in the pack.
