Using the "Transform" command

I see that some of you liked that "curved" efect on my cards...I'll show you how to achieve it...(You can close your eyes Kat )

Step 1.
We open a new document that will be our background layer,set it in white.Then open the image we want to apply the effect on,and drag it on the background..(or copy and paste,as you wish)

Step 2.
The background layer must be slightly biger than layer 1,so we'll reduce a bit the layer 1 if is necessary.

Step 3.
Go to Edition/Transform/Deform (not distort)

Step 4.
Move the transform controls as is shown in the pics below:

Step 5.
In order to enhance the curve effect we'll apply a shadow,so we'll go to Layer/Layer style/Drop shadow....and we can apply any other effect that we fancy to,like outer glow or Stroke....at your will...

The curved effect is done....but we can enhancing even more applying a "glow effect";
Step 6.
Open a new layer on top of the two others.Now using a soft brush(hardness O)paint a white line in the center of our graphic...then go to Effects/Blurr/Gaussian Blurr,and play with the control....a you see below:

Step 7.
Now clic on the eye of the background layer to make it disappear,merge the visibles (don't flat them) and save the document as PNG.

That is the final result:

Note:As you can see my Ps is in spanish...I've tried to translate the terms as best as I could,but if you have some doubts let you guide for the pics..

You're welcome girls!
Yes I know that there's an action for that Choco,(in fact there's action for almost everything)but somehow is cool to know how to do things by ourselves...even we can create our own actions,as well as our brushes and paterns...etc...
