Really good video tutorial on creating altered reality images?

I'm trying to figure out how to do different types of altered reality that I've seen.  In particular, I've seen images where an open book was used as a base on which to display an image or images.  I'm having trouble figuring out how to place the image on the book and have it conform to the book pages.  I can PHYSICALLY do it, but the image doesn't look normal because it started as a 3:2 image and was distorted down to something like 4:1 to fit the pages.  On top of this, the process of warping the image heavily causes it to look unnatural...

So, I'm looking for a good tutorial (probably video would be good) that'll go through the process of getting things to work...

It doesn't HAVE to be this particular process, but I'm looking for ways to use images, not clip art or stock images or other work that isn't mine, so I'm not trying to do anything really outlandish or surreal.

Thanks for any pointers you can provide...

If you'd like to warp an image to make it appear that it is a page from the book, here's a tutorial :

Thanks.  That one is similar to the one's I've watched.  I THINK one of my problems is my image and my book are different aspect ratios...  I tried making them similar then splitting the single image into two pages.  Works but when I warp the curve in the middle it makes the images not match...

So, I'm part way there - closer but still way from good.

Hi DavePinMinn!

 

Could you provide any screenshots of wwhere you are in your progress? I bet once we can see that, we can provide a specific technique to get it looking right for you.

This is what I ended up with.

It's not perfect, but it's better than where I started.  I tried doing it by cutting the image in half and doing each page, but I couldn't get the area in the crease to work.  I tried doing it as a single image and splitting the transform>warp vertically but changing one side always changed the other.  I finally used a single image, did transform>distort for the corners then a puppet warp for the crease.  But, this is just an example of the kind of thing I'm looking to do.  

I'd like to figure out how to do the pop out technique and a number of others that can be used, so I'll keep looking for tutorials, but the one you recommended yesterday at least got me started.

Nice! The two-image approach you mention above is probably what I would have done for speed sake. Regarding the images not lining up perfectly in the crease kind of makes sense as the crease is more defined in your reference picture. If it were flattened like in Myra's tutorial example then I would expect them to match. Overall it feels like your approach is solid, just need to work out the nuances. You are definitely on your way.
