Hi Everyone,

I have a project where I need to present our product catalog as a type of slide show that has an automatic page turning effect. Something like what you see in ebooks but not that elaborate.

I have already created the show in Photoshop by going to automate - PDF Presentation, but it doesn't have a page turn transition effect.

Is there a plug in or another way I can create this effect?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Jim Smile

Yes I di, but I just know the basics.

Right now I am using the animation tool in Photoshop CS3 trying to create the page turn effect.

It's not working very well

Thanks for your help, but it's starting to take shape in Photoshop.

What I did was to gather all my pages as images, then layed it out on how I wanted the book to turn. I took the pages that needed the page turn effect, and created a page curl at the top right corner, and then used the animation tool to create the transition.

Not spectacular, but enough to give it the look as if the pages were turning by themselves.

Whew!! (ReyRey is seen climbing back down off the edge of the bridge and tells the police he'll be ok. He drops his weapon and walks into the sunset)
the world is right again.

Hey Splodge, you have a great tutorial collection!

My boss wants me to learn Flash, and now I know where to go for some really cool tuts.

Thanks for the help,

I did this flip album in a couple of minutes using free tools and zero knowledge of Flash.

http://vokaris.110mb.com/flip/

software used:
- an image folder
- picasa (export to HTML page)
- a handy dandy picasa plugin from http://www.paulvanroekel.nl/picasa/flashpageflip/ (the other plugins look cool too)
- based on the free version of the FlashPageFlip flash engine from www.flashpageflip.com

The free version has it's limitations, one of the downsides is that it doesn't preload the images for the flipping pages and they look blank, but running it once all the way to the end makes it look better the second time around.

If you have a budget for a commercial project, you can save time and effort with the paid versions (or other similar functionality software)
