Final Image Preview
Step 1Start by opening image. Go to Image > Image size to reduce photo size to 1000px width and 669px height.
Step 2Copy background layer twice using Ctrl+J, turn off visibility of the background layer (click on the eye, which indicates layer visibility) and don’t touch it so far, work with the Layer 1 copy. Change blending mode on layer to Color Burn to increase saturation.
Step 3Copy the layer once again (Ctrl+J) and change blending mode to Screen on the second copied layer (it will be above all the layers).
Step 4Merge all the visible layers into one using Layer > Merge Visible (or hit Ctrl+Shift+E). After merging layers, apply Image > Adjustments > Color Balance to the layer.
Step 5Copy this layer using Ctrl+J and apply Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast to it.
Step 6Change blending mode to Saturation to this layer.
Step 7There should be three layers at the moment: background layer with the original image (with visibility turned off), the layer with edited image and the upper layer with very bright colors. Turn on visibility of the background layer and go to Layer > New > Layer from Background. Finally move it above all the layers.
Step 8Apply to this layer Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation with the following settings:
Step 9Using the Rectangular Marquee Tool select the left part of the picture like on image below.
Step 10Apply transformation to this area using Edit > Transform > Warp.
Step 11Then turn down the upper corner, like a page:
Step 12Finally you should get a result similar to this one:
Step 13Do the same thing to the second part of the photo.
Step 14Under the folded corners shade is needed, for this purpose we’ll create a new layer, assign Soft Light blending mode to it. Choose soft-edged brush, 80 px in diameter, black color (#000000), 50% opacity and with the help of Brush Tool darken the area under folded corners. At first work with one part (I worked with the right part at first).
Step 15To increase contrast lighten edges and corners again with Brush Tool (while lightening we shift black color to white #ffffff) as you can see on next image.
Final ImageApply Brush Tool again on the left part of the image and you finished this tutorial.
