This lesson focuses on creating custom torn edges for papers and photos. I teach you the two different techniques shown in the sample layout. One technique is for a simple, clean tear like the one on the photo. The other is for a more fibrous, chunky tear like the one on the kraft paper.
This lesson includes:
You will need:
- 21-page, full-color pdf with screen shots (in PS CS4) for Photoshop users
- A 20-page, full-color pdf with screen shots (in PSE 6.0) for Elements users
- Three papers, one “smile” title in .png and .abr format, and three plastic flowers, all designed by Katie Pertiet
Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements
While I do provide every step necessary to complete the techniques, it is helpful to have some experience with opening and closing files and a basic knowledge of the Photoshop or Photoshop Elements workspace.
The techniques for creating torn edges are different for Photoshop Users and Photoshop Elements users. This tutorial is provided in two separate pdf files, one for each piece of software. Make sure you work with the pdf that is intended for your software. File Size: 15MB
