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!
