Torn Paper Edge Graphics to Create Realistic Collage Effects

A few weeks ago I shared a video tutorial showing how to create a fun ripped paper collage effect in Adobe Photoshop, where an image appeared to be torn away to reveal a different image underneath. Since making that tutorial I have been working on creating my own set of torn paper graphics that can be used to produce such effects. Download this collection of 17 torn paper graphics to create realistic collage effects of your own. You’ll find 17 real paper scans that have been carefully processed into useful PNG images with a transparent background to make it easy to copy & paste them into your artwork.

Subtle Grain Photoshop Brushes and Patterns

It’s easy to get carried away with texturing, but sometimes just a subtle addition of grain is all that is required to give a clean digital design a tactile appearance. This collection of Subtle Grain Brushes & Patterns contains 6 grainy textures ranging from ‘so sparse you can hardly see it’ to ‘this is probably too much’. They’re great for adding visual interest to backgrounds, or distressing your artwork with letterpress style ink stamp effects. The textures are supplied as Photoshop Brushes and Pattern files, so they’re versatile tools that can be placed manually or fill an area automatically within Layer Styles and Adjustment Layers.
