PixelPerfect #56: Pagecurl

Posted in Graphics, Podcasts on December 08, 2008

Page Curl? You don't need a plugin to make a page curl in Photoshop. You need the warp tool... and a bit of detail work. Bert walks you thru a 2D and a 3D version in this special viewer request edition!

If you've ever opened a book and noticed the way the page curves out from the center binding, then you know what a page curl looks like.

Do a search on page curl in Google, and you'll find quite a few plugins dedicated to making that effect happen in Photoshop and The GIMP.

In this episode, Photoshop mavin Bert Monroy shows you how easy it is to make a page curl without a special plugin. All it takes is a fresh layer, and the Warp Tool!

He walks thru two versions: one looking head on at the book, and a second 3D version looking at the book from an angle. Cool stuff, and Bert takes the process step by step.
