CrazyBump is simple, easy-to-use yet professional 2D photo-to-3D map generation application. It doesn’t offer many adjustable parameters, but still has a lot more details than the functionally similar Photoshop plugins, and is much easier to operate. Plus, it supports exporting normals, displacement, occlusion, specularity, and diffuse these five types of maps at the same time (i.e.: importing one image will result in five effects of maps simultaneously), as well as real-time preview.

CrazyBump uses ordinary 2D images to generate normal images with z-axis (height) information. As a result, low-precision 3D models can also show high-precision effects, thereby can be used in other 3D software, especially in a large number of games. It allows you to open photograph, heightmap and normal map from file or paste them from clipboard, and to edit further. User can choose the texture wrapping mode, i.e.: vertical, horizontal or both. In addition, it also supports batch operations, which means you can add multiple photos and process them simultaneously.

Even better, CrazyBump allows user to zoom in or out and preview the texture in 3D working environment that allows to enable special effects (such as diffuse texture, parallax displacement, colored lights), choose the display mode (ball, pillar, roller, box) or load grids from a file (e.g.: OBJ, ASE formats), and rotate the texture to different angles. In short, CrazyBump can perform tasks very quickly, and provide excellent output. In the end, you can copy the generated texture file to clipboard for direct use or export it as different file formats for later use.
