Using the Shear Filter in Photoshop

September 15, 2014

Last week we talked about Using the Liquify Filter in Photoshop.  Many of you wrote to say that you have not used Photoshop Filters before.  So today let’s look at another filter that can be helpful to you in your scrapbook layouts: the Shear Filter.

The use of paper strips is very popular in layouts.  Here is a beautiful example of this technique:

This layout was created by Cathy, a member of my Creative Team , using Tell Me Again, a collaboration between ADB Designs and myself, SnickerdoodleDesigns.

I think Cathy’s layout is perfect as it is, but what if she wanted to put a slight curve to the green paper strip under her photograph, or wanted to add other paper strips with just a slight bend in them?  The Shear Filter can help with that.
