View Full Version : How to make a crumpled paper look?
06-26-2006, 07:05 PM
I really want to make a crumpled paper look to some of my creations. Is there a tutorial out there somewhere? I would love to figure out how to make it a texture that I can use as an action or something like that. I was told once that all you do is lay a scan or picture of crumpled paper over everything and adjust opacity but it just doesn't give me the same look that I've seen created before.

The way I create textures would go like this:
*scan your crumpled paper
*run the high pass filter on your image (filter>other>high pass)
*bump up the contrast a bit
*save as a .psd file
*then open the paper you want to texturize
*go to > filter>texture>texturizer>then in the drop down choose "load texture"
*browse for your saved .psd file and load it
* adjust scale
See if that works for you! I don't even have a scanner, this works with just photos of textures too! :)

i just layer it (the crumpled scan copy) on top of papers and play with my blend modes until I like the look!

I use ATomic Cupcake's Crumple Action (http://www.atomiccupcake.com/item.php?id=000019).

Yeah there is but if I can make my own unique crumple pattern that is cool! :shock: :D
