Quick Tip—Brand New Alpha
by Jen White
Here’s a quick tip for giving a shiny alpha a brand new look. The alpha and paper below are from Eggs In My Bonnet by Amber Shaw.
In Photoshop Elements or Adobe Photoshop:
- Open an letter from a shiny alpha (File > Open).
- Open a brown paper and add it to the alpha file using the Move tool.
- In the Menu Bar, choose Layer > Create Clipping Mask.
- In the Layers panel, change the Blend Mode of the paper layer to Multiply.
- Save the new alpha (File > Save As) as a PNG file with a unique name.
- Remember not to save over the original!
I LOVE the look of my brand new alpha!
