Warp corner

Hello,

I am trying to warp/curl an edge of a photo. Whilst the Shear filter, which I believe is the next best thing in PSE, is apt for bending photos, I haven't had any success in curling a corner.

So I wonder if anyone has a curling method they could share.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

In this link you find a step by step tutorial to make a photo / or text curl.
Hope it is of use to you.

Hi Shezza, welcome aboard!

Here is another tut (written by one of our own -- Wendy).

Sepiana - thanks for that link. It's been a while since I made a page curl - sounds like a fun project to try again.

It's always better to know how to do page curls yourself.

Now, if you are in a hurry, here is a ready cooked action :

And there is a script included in the Elements+ package by Andrei Dubrovski :

Janice, you are most welcome!

I really like Wendy's tut; the results look so real. Although I have Panos's Page Curls action I find myself using her tut most of the time. I like the feeling of creating a page curl from scratch. It is a lot of fun!

I tried the Squidoo page curl method Havov mentioned. When I got to the Transform | Skew part, when I tried to move the corner the image was jumping around as if it was trying to snap to something. Anyone know why?

TIA.

Hi Major Major,
I don't know what happend but if you follow this steps I am sure you will get your result.

Select the layer
Press ctr-t
right click the mouse and choose skew
With the left mouse button clicked down grab a corner (the little square) and move the mouse a little in the direction you want.
Next do this the same with the other corner.

Below is one example I did this morning.
Succes.

Hans

Havov -

Thanks for your response. I understand the procedure. My problem, as I said, is that the image was jumping around as I tried to drag it, as if it were trying to snap to something.
