Page Curl creation with GIMP

Page Curl effects become very popular in recent days. Everyone uses it in the background of block, modules, headers etc. It gives a curved page style on the site's layout. It's pretty simple with the GIMP to make a Page Curl effect. Lets see how we can do so:

1. Open up the GIMP.
2. We will create a canvas of 200X200 with transparent background. click Select>Rounded corners. we will give 10 into the input field.
3. Fill the selected area with your favourite colour. you can apply noise into it by going to filters>noise>hsv noise.
4. Now we will use the path tool to select the corner which we will make curl. make a tringle around the corner. enter to select the triangle.
5. Use the transform>rotate tool to rotate the selected area. make the rotation to 180.
6. Give a shadow effect with filters> light and shadow> drop shadow.

Then save the image as a png file.
