When you’re working in 3D in Photoshop, your models and scenes will look much better when they’re correctly lit using one of the three types of lights in Photoshop. The spotlight usually gives the best result; however, sometimes it’s tricky to position the spotlight to hit the spot on the model that you want. Thankfully, there’s an easier way. With your light selected, hold down the Option (PC: Alt) key and your cursor will turn into a little circle. Click on your model exactly where you want the light to strike, and the light will now aim right at the spot you clicked.
