Creating Ric Rac in Photoshop
Learn how to create your very
own ric-rac using premade ribbons in a matter of
minutes. I so excited when I figured out how to do
this. I hope have some fun with it too!
Step 1 -
Start by opening Photoshop
Elements and going to Edit Mode. Go to Open on the
Main Menu Bar, select Open (Ctrl + O) and click on
the ribbon you plan to use. For this tutorial I will
be using the Satin Maroon Ribbon from our
Digital Basics Kit.
Step 2 -
Rotating your ribbon.
You will now want
to rotate your ribbon 90 degrees to the right. To do
this go to Image > Rotate > 90 Right.
Step 3 - Change the canvas size.
You will now need
to change your canvas size to about 4 in. To do this
go to Image > Resize > Canvas Size... Set the Width
to 4 and click OK.
Step 4 - Adding a wave.
In this step we
will add a wave to your ribbon. To do this go to
Filter > Distort > Wave. You can play with setting
to affect how your ric-rac will look. Below are the
numbers I used - these will vary based on the size
of ribbon you start with.
Step 5 - Almost done!
Now all you need
to do is Rotate your ribbon back 90 degrees and Save
(Ctrl + S) the file
