Default Making Photo Corners in Photoshop

** This tutorial brought to you by Piggy Scraps Designs **

I love photo corners! That & plain white borders are my current favorite way to show off photo’s. They’re also a great addition, a quick & easy element, to add to any kit.

Start by opening a new document. Your choice, but I like 1200X1200 px at 300 dpi.

Drag your paper on in (I choose plain card stock for this example), and ImageàTrim any excess paper.

Now cut out a perfect triangle. My preferred way:
  • ImageàImage RotationàScale (or Ctrl T): 45°
  • Now use your Marquee tool to select half your square.
  • Delete
  • You have a triangle!
  • Rotate back (Ctrl T = 45°) and we are in business.

To cut out the center of your photo corner, to give it that “photo corner” shape:
  • Duplicate your triangle layer.

  • Shrink the duplicate triangle layer by approx. 40% (Ctrl T): W=40% and H=40%
  • Select duplicate triangle.

  • Delete smaller, triangle selection on your original triangle layer.

Now all you need to do is apply a drop shadow, or a fun style (gold, silver, sparkly anyone?). And you are done!
