    In this tutorial we will learn how to use a simple image and give it a book style. Please pay attention to the details.

    1. This is the image we are going to use for this tutorial.

    2. Press Ctrl + T on the image > Select Percpective > and move the "Right" side of the image upward.

    3. Now press M and draw a rectangle "which will be the side cover of the book" and fill it with any color "with combination of book color". I am using black color.

    4. Now select the side cover layer, press CTRL + T > Right Click > Select Percpective and move the left side of the rectangle up a few pixels, as shown in the image below

    5. Select "Line Tool" by pressing U and draw a line "Parallel" to the top angle of the book. As shown below. The line should be parallel but keep it a few pixels less than the book image top line.

    6. Now copy paste the line and place them between the "Line" and "Book Top". As shown below.

    And then lower the opacity up to 33%

    And your book is complete :)

    You can still play with it and apply some drop shadows, side cover text...etc but now at least you have got idea that how you can make a book from an image, right? :)

    Here is my final result.

    Excellent tutorial Jani as always :)

    I am sure it will be handy for those who write eBooks, they can now easily design their own book.
