Relatively new this designing and found this cool effect and wondering how it is done ?
I tried to simply use "linear" gradient but I just can't seem to capture the edge as it is done in the image ?
Does anyone know how to do this or can provide me with a sample *.png ?
Much appreciated :)
are you talking about the drop shadow? or the gradient inside the paper?
Hey kwek-kwek, thanks for the response.
Just generally how the whole thing is put together ?
Adding a linear shadow to a "box" doesn't work because the "edges" appear on the top and bottom when fading "white" with "#F6F6F6" - so really not sure how this was done ?
of course there will be a million ways to do 1 thing but here is how i would do it (thinking that you are using photoshop)
- Create a layer with the linear gradient
- Create another layer on top of the gradiesn and fill it with white
- Give the 2nd layer a drop shadow effect. (unckecked the "Use Global Lights", Distance = 0, Spread = 2, Size = 8)
- right click on the effects layer and "Create Layer" that shoul separate your layer to your effect layer.
- Now the final step would be transform(WARP) your drop shadow layer and just play around with the top and the bottom points.
The last step is to create a fading effect.
I would create a right-left grey to white gradient layer. On top I would create a new layer with a white fill and apply a drop shadow to this layer. A third layer overlaping the previous two would have 2 gradients from white to transparent (top to bottom and bottom to top) http://www.adelacrative.com/gradient.psd
