[tutorial] Realistic Paper
Posted 7/4/08 , edited 7/4/08

Do you want to make realistic paper using Adobe ? :eh:
If you do, follow these simple steps . ( I provided visual aides )
I used Adobe Photoshop CS2 .

Okay ! Let's get started :ninja: ,

First , make a new 200 x 300* file .
Papers are usually rectangle .
Go to the Tools palette and select the :arrow: ROUNDED RECTANGLE TOOL .
You can choose any color you want , it doesn't matter because it'll be covered by a Pattern Overlay later .
Make a rectangular shape using the :arrow: rounded rectangle tool .

After doing that , Go to the Layers pallete located at the bottom right part of the screen , right-click on the rounded rectangle layer then select :arrow: Blending Options .

Let's add pattern to the shape .
Select :arrow: Pattern Overlay .
You'll see different textures ,
Click the little arrow located at the right side of the textures , then click :arrow: Grayscale Paper .

Choose the pattern which I surrounded with red lines , adjust the scale of the texture , I chose 70 . After adjusting the scale , hit :arrow: OK .

Your paper should look like this now :

Now , let's flatten the image .
Go to the Layers palette , click on the little arrow located below the close button .

Let's add more detail on the paper .
Go to :arrow: Image , Adjustments , Brightness/Contrast .

Adjust the Contrast to +90

Your paper looks realistic ! Now , Let's add holes in it .
Now , Go to the Tools palette and then select :arrow: Ellipse Tool .

Make a little circle at the upper part of the paper .

Go to the Layers pallete , right-click on the circle layer , then select :arrow: Blending Options .
Then , check :arrow: Inner shadow ( No need to adjust )

Duplicate the circle layer 4 times* then put them anywhere you want it . :P

Tadahhhh ! A realistic paper !
