I did this tutorial in Photoshop CS3 Extended which is why some of you may have problems. However, that does't mean this tutorial won't work in other versions of Photoshop. Just try it out.
Want to create your own newspaper article? Well now you can with my tutorial. I will be using the oh so fabulous Dita Von Teese this time. Here's the before:
Here's the after:
001.First of all, go File>New.
002.Play around with the settings to get the size you want for your document. This also depends on the picture you are going to be inserting. Since my picture is long, I will make my document 600x1000 pixels.
003.Once you have your new document, fill it with the color #dddddd.
004.Now go Filter>Noise>Add Noise.
005.Apply the following settings:
006.Now grab the picture you want to put on your article, & paste it.
008.With your "Layer 1" layer selected, bring down the fill to 58%.
009.Double click on your "Layer 1" & go to the "Stroke" section. Apply the following settings:
Blend Mode: Normal
Fill Type: Color
010.Your picture should look like this:
011.Now select your Line Tool (U).
012.Make sure your weight is set to 2px & your foreground/line color is set to #a5a5a5.
013.Click on where you want to start to draw your line, hold down shift, & draw the line.
014.Do the same thing to the other side.
015.Now select your Horizontal Type Tool (T). I recommend you use 18.8 as your font size & Times New Roman for your headline. As for your body copy, I suggest you use the same font, except change the size. Just to keep it looking like a real newspaper. :)
016.Add a catchy headline, some body copy & you're done! :)
If you got lost or have any questions, comment the tutorial & I'll get back to you as soon as I can. :D
