    Photoshop Book Effect?

    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for a tutorial on how to take a flat image (a book cover, in this case) and make it look like a book.

    I suppose it's similar to the Photoshop software box but I want to create the effect of pages down the side if possible.

    Unfortunately Googling "photoshop book" or similar gave a load of results about books about Photoshop.

    A quick tutorial:

    1. Original e-box image



    2. Cut the front cover



    3. Cut and re-create (simple color) back cover



    4. Add white pages - plain white shape



    5. Add lines (blur them if needed) and lower the opacity of the lines' layer



    And now he have an e-book!

    I will have a go at it anyway and see what I can do to get the effect of pages but if anyone has any links specifically for books I'd be grateful

    Edit: Varelse beat me to it! Thanks!
