Making Corners Lift From The Page in Photoshop

imageIn this Photoshop tutorial video I answer a reader question. How, they asked, can you easily make it look like the corners of the photograph are lifting from the background?

I demonstrate two ways here, with some tips along the way including finding the centre of an image and separating Layer Styles from a layer (yep, you really can!)

    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for this demo.

    One of the things I love about photoshop is there is always another way to get a similar outcome.

    I think you’ll find this process to curled corner shadows even easier:…after you put the shadow on it’s own layer….with this layer still selected, to simply go to edit>transform>warp and pull up a bit on the two bottom handles. Done!

    Try it out. See what you think!

    Keep up the good work.

  2. Great idea, thank s for the tip Michael!
