AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.x Tutorial


How to make the bended (curled and/or folded) part of the page to be outside the document canvas?

First of all, we recommend that you enable the Show Clipping Zone feature. The reason is simple - while bending (curling or folding) the page in AV Bros. Page Curl Pro 2.2, you can preview the page entirely, regardless of whether it has been clipped by the canvas or not, thus it worth to have an idea of whether your image is clipped or not and if yes, then how it is clipped (See Fig.1.)

Note: both the red colored "clipped parts of the curled page" and "Boundary of the document canvas" are for explanation purpose only and are not displayed in the practical usage of the plug-in.

Note: The pink color of the Clipping Zone is used in the plug-in by default, but you can specify its desired color by selecting the "Choose Clipping Zone color" menu item and then choosing the color.

Now, if you have made that kind of adjustments, in which the bended (curled and/or folded) part(s) of your image is outside the canvas, then you have two possibilities to obtain the desired design in your host:

1. You can click the Apply button to make the plug-in remember the current settings (Another solution is use the Save Settings feature.) and then, when you obtain the created image clipped in your host, simply Undo the operation in the host. Then extend the canvas, so the bent image has enough space to avoid being clipped (Just be sure that the source image is in the separate layer, rather than in the Background layer or any other layer with the protected transparency.) and apply the plug-in to the source image one more time.

2. Once you are happy with the effect obtained inside the plug-in, use the Export feature of the plug-in (see Fig.2), with which you can export the result either as .PSD or .PNG file. Then close the plug-in and open (import) the file that you have just exported. Read the How to Use the Controls, Features and Commands>Main Window>Executing Area>Export Button topic to learn more about the Export option.
