Does anybody know how one can make a page curl effect similar to Photoshop? I can see the functions "lattice distortion" and "perspective" but couldn't manage to create a page curl effect though.

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Kind regards,

Isabelle

I don't have a tutorial, but try this.

Make a triangle with the triangle tool and place it in the corner where you want the curl.

 

then play with the mesh warp tool and I'm sure you will come up with something.

 

The tool is the distorted mesh next to the text tool.  It's nested together with the perspective tool, so you have to click and hold until the flyout lets you pick the mesh warp tool. 

 

You can use a gradient on the triangle, or maybe part of a different picture. 

Hope this is helpful.

This is one of those things that I find much easier to do than to describe, but here goes! To create the result shown in the main screenshot, I made a triangle as Madame has described (except that instead of using the Triangle Tool I used the Pen Tool in Polygon Mode). I gave the triangle a fill but no stroke, and then I chose the 'Selection From Layer' option on the Select menu to create a selection around the triangle. After hiding the triangle (not strictly necessary, but it helps you to see what you're doing!) I rasterized the image layer and cut away the selected corner of the image. I switched to the Node Tool, grabbed the bottom right-hand corner of the triangle, dragged it upwards and slightly to the left, and then curved the upper two edges (mainly the one on the right). Finally, I applied an elliptical gradient fill (shown in the secondary screenshot) to give the page curl a little depth.

Hi and thank you very much for your prompt replies.

However, as I'm absolutely no Photoshop or Affinity Pro, I'm not able to create that page curl though.

 

@Madame: If I use the mesh warp tool, I'm not able to "fold down" the corner. I can distort the image but somehow it doesn't work as expected.

 

@Alfred: I created a Triangle using the Pen tool in Polygon mode and chose the 'selection from layer' option. But somehow no selection around the triangle was created?

 

Thank you so much.

Did you give the triangle a fill, Isabelle? I don't have Affinity Photo running at the moment, but I'm pretty sure I found that the 'Selection From Layer' option either gave me a selection around the stroke or (if the stroke weight was too small) no selection at all unless the shape had a fill.

@Alfred, thanks for the directives! It worked perfectly for me & was just what I needed. :)
