Step 1 I used the shape tool that Is automatically set on a square, I then changed the colour to a creamy peach colour so It wasn’t the standard white one this was because I wanted It to stand out more on my cover and to give off a more vintage and old vibe. To go with my Indie/Alternative genre. I made sure it was the correct size on my magazine. I then changed the angle of the shape as I didn’t want it to be just placed in line on the magazine as I didn’t believe this looked right or professional, I wanted it to look paper clipped onto the top of the magazine.

Step 2 I temporarily made a black square for the inside of the polaroid so that I knew where I wanted my picture to sit and be sized when I uploaded and placed the picture inside the polaroid. The black line on the bottom of the polaroid and on the right side of the polaroid is called a drop shadow. I did this by double clicking the layer and choosing the properties or effects I wanted on the peachy cream square. I decided I wanted a drop shadow so that the polaroid would look 3D on my magazine cover and look more professional and well made.

Step 3 I then uploaded the photo I wanted to use. I had already previously edited the photo on Photoshop, rising the contrast levels and making the background behind the band sharper and bright.

Step 4 To make the paperclip I simply right clicked the tool shape in the toolbar and clicked on custom shape. It then gave a drop down menu of lots of different shapes and items. I found the paper clip and used this.

Step 5 I put the custom shape into the right size and placed it where I wanted it, I put half on so the top bit wasn’t actually showing, so it looked like it was actually paper clipped onto the other side of the cover, I think this works better instead of just placing it on top. I changed the colour of the clip to grey as it was originally black, this continued the more realistic look about it. I then clicked on the properties of the shape and just like the outside of the polaroid I put a drop shadow on the paperclip. This made it look 3D and stand out more on the front cover.
