Hey there! So i was tryna do a school project and needed to type something so i brought in a new notebook - type image so i can type on it. But it looks a bit out of place so can anyone please tell me how i can blend it with the background colour (magenta-blue typeish)? I needed to coat it with the same color the background is and any help on how to do it would be amazing. Thanks!
If the crumpled paper is on its own layer, there are a few techniques for blending it in with the background:
Apply a blending mode
With the layer selected, go to the top of the Layers panel and change the dropdown menu from Normal to either Overlay or Soft Light (or try out the others to see what works best)
Change the opacity
With the layer selected, go to the top of the Layers panel and to the right of Opacity, lower the percentage
Apply a layer mask to feather the edges
With the layer selected, click on the 3rd button from left at the bottom of the Layers panel. Select the layer mask thumbnail and use the brush to apply black where you don't want a part to appear, apply white where you want it to appear, and apply varying shades of gray (as a gradient or with blur applied) where you want to feather portions.
You could also select the layer, go to Select > Load Selection and set the current document as the source while creating a new selection, go to Select > Modify > Feather and set the Feather Radius to something fairly large compared to the size of the selection, and then click the add layer mask button to make a layer mask based on the selection.
