Followed this tutorial to create a crumpled paper background suitable for use on a web site or slide presentation background.
The key notes I would make to highlight the technique:
- Use a black-to-white, diamond gradient with the gradient mode set to difference and draw a bunch of random gradient diamonds on a new layer
- Apply the emboss filter
- Remember to adjust the levels afterward to get the paper back to white (a step not covered in the tutorial)
