Today I am come up with a very new effect of Adobe Photoshop CS5, which is called in simple and understanding language “Rough Paper Effect“. We only need Adobe Photoshop (any CS* version) and some basic skills. This effect can use several places as you want.
Well! lets take a look what we gonna create today using Adobe Photoshop.
Lets create a new document. Go to File > New (Ctrl+N) and put some big size (1600px x 1200px)
Now select Gradient Tool (G) and made some changes in Control Panel;
- Gradient Color: Black and white
- Color Mode : Linear Gradient
- Mode : Difference
And put some gradient on the workspace anonymously, as you can see in the following image. I put gradient on the same layer about 1o to 14 time for the following effect, but remember if you need the accurate results then you must select mode Difference.
After playing with gradient now lets put some real effect. Now go to Filter > Stylize > Emboss and make some following changes in Emboss option box.
- Angle: 135 degree
- Height: 5 px
- Amount: 200%
and then OK.
Now create a new layer (Shift+Ctrl+Alt+N), select the Overlay mode and set the Opacity 70%. Now again we use Gradient Tool (G) but this time our gradient will be changed as you can see in the following image.
Now put the above gradient on the layer 1. And lets create a new layer (Shift+Ctrl+Alt+N) again. Now set Linear Dodge (Add) and Opacity 100% but the Fill down this time to 25%. And put the same gradient from up to downward on the layer 2 as you can see in the (Tag #8).
Lets give it a final touch, select the very first layer which is named as Background by default. Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and set the Gaussian blur radius 3.0px and then hit the OK button.
Now I hope you can see the final results very clearly. I suppose you enjoy this tutorial and mark your comments to believe that you like my work.
