Crisper, Old Paper effect on images (Newbies)


Recommended Posts

Sharpen is nice, but here's an effect that makes your image seem like it's made from old paper, crisp, and sharpens it in a certain way.

1. Open your base image.

2. :AddNewLayer: Add New Layer.

3. Effects > Stylize > Edge Detect: Choose any degree.

4. Oh no! What have you done? It's fine, click :Properties: Layer Properties (alternatively hit F4), and change the blend mode to Additive.

5. Duplicate the top layer until you get your desired crispness.

6. Flatten! Ctrl+Shift+F

After some tinkering, let's compare the two:

This is not an advanced effect, but it's nice for an old feel, or a good texture for newbies.
