Crumpled Paper

This crumpled paper effect starts with designing a piece of notebook paper and then applying a displacement map to create the texture. Finish the effect off with some layer styles to give it depth.

  1. Corey for President! By far you have the best tutorials on the block. Other ones I see always skip a step or so. You streamline it for everyone. Please dont ever stop~!

  2. Agree with GabyB. This one was was devastatingly simple in execution but the underlying principles profound. I like the idea of being able to use the simple scaled page and making a template by punching out shapes or text for example. It is often a great way to learn of techniques to apply to your own work that wins the day with these tutorials rather than just repeating them.



  3. Hey Barker very kool stuff man keep doing them. I have one question to ask how do you change the photoshop animation box to act like the flash animation key frame. Also how do save an animation created in photoshop cs3 as a flash file.

  4. Wow! Excellent tut! I learned a lot from this one. how to use displacement…what the hell a smart object is…this is great!

  9. When using the marque tool to fill in, how do you get it to automatically fill in the blue lines when pressing ctrl+alt+t, because i have it moving down, but not filling in the as it goes

  10.

  11. The application of the Filter / Distort / Displace at 07:41 has no effect in CS3 exteneded.
    I went through the entire tutorial again just to be sure I didn’t miss something. It just does absolutely nothing. Bummer.

    I can apply other filters and they show as “smart filters” but the Distort / Displace? It’s like it’s not even there.

  12. Great tutorial. One question though. Is there anyway to control the weight of the line that is put down by the Single Row Marquee Tool. My lines look so thin its hard to see. Appreciate it and keep up the good work.

  13. I don’t think I would use this, because paper doesn’t crumble in nice forms en waves. Crumbled paper is made up of a (sometimes very dense) collection of squares and triangles. The paper in this tutorial is simply too elegantly ‘crumbled.’
