Page Curl Photoshop Action

I have created a small action based on the Page Curl Tutorial. The action simply creates a page curl in any of the four corners of an image.

Here are a couple of examples.

Page curl action first example

Page curl action second example

I have added a drop shadow style to the action, however the values I used are for very large images so at the end of the action you may need to adjust the drop shadow style.

One more thing is that when you run the action you may get a message saying “The object Background is not currently available” just hit continue. That happens because the first step of the action is to unlock the layer, however if the layer is not locked you get that message.

You can download the action here Page Curl Action
To install it just unzip the contents of the .zip file in your Photoshop actions folder.
Choose which of the four included actions (top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right) you want to run and just hit play.

This action was created with Photoshop CS2 but should also be compatible with Photoshop CS as well but not with previous Photoshop versions.

    Cool. One thing though, your homepage looks all messed un in Internet Explorer 6 and even worst in Firefox 1.5. Might want to fix that.

    Thanks for the heads up, the example images were a bit larger than what they should have been, it should be fixed now.

    Thanks again

    Great work Dimitris, but unfortunately I can’t seem to get it to work in CS.
    I suspect it’s just CS2. Or has anyone else had any luck?

    could you tell me how to add such great shadows to an image? or are these not made up but it’s originally photographed like that?

    I think the border of the curl corner may be better “anti aliased”, then should be a perfect trick.

    This doesnt work with CS or older versions. Warp transform is only in CS2.

    I know this is for CS2 but is it at all possible to get the page curl effect in CS. Can anyone help me with this?
