Whatever you want to write or make a shape.
WARNING : this is the original tuto, with all the steps
With this one you will make really detailed altered books.
Step 1: Download Photoshop
Width is the number of sheets.
WARNING : I said “sheets” and not pages !!
For the height : height of your sheets in cm (be careful, the cover can be higher) multiplied x12.
This increase is for the final distorsion (folded sheets take up more space).
If it is a word, choose your font and create a layer for each letter.
WARNING : if it’s a word don’t leave space between each letter (each column must have a black area).
Use the “pencil tool“, “square brushes“, size 1 pixel.
Zoom until the ruler shows each pixel.
We’re going to modify areas where the text (or the shape) has two parts on the same column.
For the “L“, the grey areas won’t be changed (vertical lines are not broken).
With the “pencil tool” (square brushe, size 1 px, white color) erase one column out of two in the upper area.
Then erase one column out of two in the lower area shifting the deletion from the upper area.
At the folding time, you will have :
- first sheet for the upper part,
- second sheet for the lower part,
- third sheet for the upper part…. and so on, until complete columns.
The “e” is special, because you don’t have 2 areas on the same column but 3 !!
