    Tutorial Parchment & Stain Tutorial [Photoshop]

    So, I was going to make a long post on how to get the effects of a stain, then I found this:

    Here is a link to a great tutorial on how to make a poster in photoshop. In the first part, there is a section on how to create a stain: The rest details a nice parchment look.

    http://www.lunacore.com/photoshop/tutorials/tut024.htm

    Now, you can follow the same steps with a filled selection in photoshop. Basically, in the end, if you follow the dodge/burn tactic, you will get what you need.

    If you have a picture of a stain that you want, what you can also do is apply it to your image in it's own layer with a bg of white... using ctrl+alt+g to clip it to the layer below, then use the blending mode HARD LIGHT or PIN light. Play with the opacity, and you will get a stain. Add a few effects like gradients, glows and play with their blending styles...

    Here is an example:

    Info

    I've had really good luck with creating layers set to color burn and using really light pastels as my burn color...thats a great way to make stains.

    For example...very light pink set to color burn will create bloodstains. Very light tan will create like coffee stains or such...you can always take whatever shape your stain is and set it to color burn, if its not a light pastel color it will probably appear black, then run image->adjustments->Hue/Saturation and lighten it up and desaturate it a bit til you get a really good stained look. I've not tried this on a parchment background but it works wonders on stone backgrounds...color burn to me is synonymous with dried stain.

    I followed the tutorial you discovered and shared with us and I was pleased with the knowledge gained and the end result as well. I now can make much more interesting player handouts. Thanks

    I just wanted to bump this tutorial. Having tried it out earlier this week, I can give it five stars. What I really like about it is that because the creation process is non-destructive, after you have created your parchment document, you can go back to it again and again and make adjustments to most aspects without having to draw the parchment again from scratch. For example you can change the texture / colour/ clouding / scratches / blotches / ragged edges etc. In short once you've done this tutorial, you may never need draw another parchment again.
