  • Tutorial: Stationary, creating pretty

    I learned this from Prof. Rita Botwin, she has written several PS textbooks, this came from Book 3, Photoshop 7 A Hands-on Approach

    Open an image, make the background layer 0.
    Add a layer mask to layer 0.
    Make the mask active.
    Apply filter>noise> 130%, gausian, mono.
    Apply filter>artistic>sponge 2, 12, 5.
    Add a new layer (layer 1) and place below layer 0.
    Convert layer 1 to a background layer (layer menu>new>background from layer).
    Target layer mask of layer 0 again.
    Apply filter>texture>craquelure 15, 6, 9.
    Reduce opacity of layer 0.
    Adjustments:
    To create more subdued color.
    Adjust levels input gamma 1.75.
    Output black point 75.

    Use text tool to create heading address, apply a drop shadow.

      hi platscha-
      I looked for the author and title of the book at Amazon, but came up without a match for either search phrase. Have you any additional information I might use to search for her work? (ISBN or co-author?). I love books!
      Thanks, Debby

        Book info

        There is no ISBN listed in the book.
        It is actually a textbook used as a instructional aide to the class.
        Her email is [email protected]

        I would not recommend buying the book unless you were taking the class.
