Paper is one of the most versatile mediums in the world. You can use it to communicate a message, to make art, or to simply add texture to a design. While there are many ways to create the appearance of paper in Photoshop, one of the easiest is to use the Paper Texture filter.
To create a paper effect in Photoshop, open an image and select the area you want to turn into paper. Then go to Filter > Texture > Paper Texture and adjust the settings until you get the look you want. You can also add a paper texture to an entire image by going to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Paper Texture.
Paper textures can be used in a variety of design projects, from creating background images to adding textural interest to collages and scrapbook pages. So experiment with this handy filter and see what kinds of results you can achieve!
