Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this website for?

ToTheThirdDimension is for meant for designers and founders who want to spice up their products. Many digital services benefit from using illustrations and abstractions in order to create a vibrant brand. With all the images on this website being free, our hope is to help empower many creatives and businesses around the world embracing the 3D world.

What does Web Optimized mean?

All the images have been exported in 4K resolution from Blender. From there they're opened in Photoshop where they're cropped and saved for web. This process reduces the filesize. To further optimize it, the images are processed in the software ImageOptim which cleans the file of metadata. The result is the best possible filesize for web design.

Still, PNGS in these types of resolutions are quite big and come on the expense of loading speed. If you do not need the transparent background we highly recommend you to open it in Photoshop, add your preferred background color and export as JPEG instead.

How do I use the images in my designs?

You simply find the collection you find suitable for your design, click download. You'll receive a folder containing the images in 1K, 2K, 4K and 500px. Pick the resolution that fits best where the image should feature. If you want to use it as a section background go for a larger resolution and vice versa you might want to use the 500px version for smaller elements.

Why are the images PNGS?

PNGS allow transparent backgrounds. This means you can use the images on top of your existing designs and get creative in mixing elements from various collections.

The downside to PNGS is their filesize – they're significantly bigger than JPEGS. If you don't need the transparency we strongly suggest you add a background and save them as JPEG instead. If you prefer, we can do this kind of customisation for you at an hourly rate.

What do I get when I buy a source file?

When you purchase the source file of a collection you get the file that was used to create all the images of that collection. Most files are from Blender (.blend) which is a free 3D software. The file contains the elements, scene settings, light setup, materials, shaders and export settings ready for you to alter the elements to fit your designs.

Can I get a refund?

Sure, we offer a 100% happiness guarantee for all the source files. Though, it is your responsibility to understand the product before buying it and we hope you'll take the time to consider this. Luckily it's very simple: all images are free but you can purchase the source file at a flat rate and customise it yourself. If you decide to have us customise it for you, we agree on a price upfront.

Can you customise the images for us?

We absolutely can! If you want to have an element created or altered by us to fit your project you start by simply writing us an email here where you describe the task. From that we'll give you a price quote starting at $80. When we agree on the price you'll pay 50% upfront and 50% upon delivery. We do everything from small color changes to sophisticated animations and designs so you can save time and let us do the hard work.

Who's the team behind?

We're a small team who created this service as a side project to embrace the third dimension in design. We have over 10 years of experience in digital design, 2D, 3D and have done many commercial and artistic projects.

The service is mainly run by me, Emil Villumsen, a designer & extrapreneur. You can reach me here on email and on Twitter.
