Page Curl Effect Tutorial
With this tutorial, I am going to show you how to achieve a page curl effect in just a few easy steps. This tutorial use the Warp filter so it’s for Photoshop CS2 only.
Let’s start by opening the photo you want to apply the effect to. I used this stock photo
Now select the Rectangular Marquee Tool
and select a rectangular area in the corner that you want to apply the effect. In the screenshot below I have highlighted my selection.
Now select the gradient tool and draw a black to white gradient in your selection. In this case I drew the gradient from the top right corner to the bottom left corner.
Now deselect (Select->Deselect) or (Ctr+D)
Next go to Edit->Transform->Warp.
Drag the bottom left point towards the center like in the screenshot below.
And here is our result.
Finally apply a Drop Shadow style. These are the settings I used.
And here is my final result.
