Rolled Paper Preview in Photoshop
This tutorial will show you how to make a rolled paper preview in Photoshop. This tutorial was written in Photoshop CS3. It requires the plugin Mura Meister's Stripe of Cylinder.
Mura Meister's Stripe of Cylinder
1. Open up the papers that you want to preview in Photoshop. For this tutorial, I am using five of my papers from my Funkadelic kit.
2. Select your first paper. This is your Primary Canvas.
3. In that image, create a new layer. I named it Rolled Preview.
4. Apply Mura Meister's Stripe of Cylinder plugin to the layer. Number defaults to 3. Change it to match the number of papers that will be previewed.
5. Choose your second paper. Select All (Ctrl + A) and Copy (Ctrl + C).
6. Go back to your Primary Canvas. In the layer palette, select the Background layer.
7. Paste (Ctrl + V). The second paper is now between the Background Layer and the Rolled Preview Layer.
8. Select the Move Tool, if it isn't already selected.
9. Move the second paper over so that it is situated under the second stripe.
10. Select your next paper. Select All (Ctrl + A) and Copy (Ctrl + C).
11. Go back to your first paper and Paste (Ctrl + V). This will place the new paper between the last paper and the Rolled Preview layer.
12. Move the layer so that it is under the next stripe.
13. Repeat steps 10-12 until all the papers have been placed on the Primary Canvas.
The rolled paper preview is now complete.
