I'm using PS CS6 on Win7, 64bit.

I saw the materials package in the shop and tried to open it to have a look but it says windows can't open this product. How do I open it?

Regards,
Graham

The file > Materials.zxp < Needs the Adobe Extension Manager found here: http://www.adobe.com/exchange/em_down... It will automatically install the files.

OR

You can change the Materials.zxp to Materials.zip and unzip the files and manually place them (the .p3m files) in your Presets folder here: Applications | Photoshop CS6 | Presets | Materials

I hope that helps

The following page has been updated to include a zxp for installing in CS6 and earlier using Extension Manager, as well as a zip to download and install manually: http://www.photoshop.com/products/photoshop/3d/content
