Torn Paper Effect | Photoshop Tutorial

In this photoshop photo effect tutorial we will see how to create this somewhat popular torn paper effect.

The effect is actually very simple to create compare to how good it looks. All we have to do is apply some layers masks and use good quality torn paper brushes.

you will need two portrait photos with slightly different poses to get the best effect.we will keep one in black and white and one is color to make effect more impactful.

In the end we’ll add some contact shadows and color correction to finish the effect.

    Nice Video clip! Forgive me for the intrusion, I would love your opinion. Have you tried – Riddleagan Made Masterpiece Remedy (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is an awesome one off guide for learning professional photo editing without the headache. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my cooworker at very last got astronomical results with it.

    Nice, but why show all the irrelevant stuff like cropping the image, enhancing the colors, etc. Just show the turn paper effect please.

    The brushes came in RAR file format, I have photoshop CC which is "CS and above" but it does not allow to even open it. Please help?

    If anyone is having trouble opening the brushes, you have to extract the file once you’ve downloaded it. It should say "ABR File," then you can literally click and drag the file over to Photoshop and it should pop up in a folder. This is what I did for windows and it worked. It may be a similar process for Mac users, but I’m not sure.
