Effects - Burnt Paper
very easy and fast way of making the burnt paper effect
on the edges of a piece of paper. The trick is...
Open any file
or create a picture. Click on the lasso tool so that it
becomes activated. Move the lasso on the picture
and create an area or a hole that at the
end of the task it should seem to be burnt. The
movement with the lasso must be quite slow, detailed and trembled. So that, the effect may seem
to be the most realistic as possible. Move to the fast mask mode.
Go to Filter>Pixelate>Crystalize using the regulation 4. Change the mask to the
normal mode. Now, Select>Save and fill it with white color the inner part of the
picture. Then, Select>Modify>Expand and
regulate it using 4. Just in case you want
a bigger extremity increase the number. Go back to the
previous mode of Fast Mask and Filter>Blur>Gaussian
Blur with the regulation 3. Return to the normal mode. Now, Select>Load Selection > mark Mode of Subtract.
Now, Image>Adjust>Hue/Saturation. Mark Colorize,
Hue 13, 30 Saturation and Lightness for -59.
If you wish,
use a shade to enhance the burnt edge. This will make
your task more beautiful
