Hereâ€™s a nice trick to frame your picture in a kind ofâ€¦well, I donâ€™t know how to describe it. Now there may be lots of methods to do this, but hereâ€™s one: Step 1: Create a new image (let's call it image1), about the size of the image that you want to frame. Paint around with a natural brush or something. I donâ€™t have one so I just painted a piece of paper with a black paint and then scanned it. Paint in the form of what I have painted. You can use the my file. Step 2: Go to Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast and pump the contrast to maximum. Also, adjust brightness of the image to get a frizzly kind of image. Step 3: Next, open the image that you want framed (image2). Any kind will do. Iâ€™ll use a group pic. Copy the entire image by pressing Ctrl+A or going to Select > All. And then Ctrl+C or Edit > Copy. Step 4: Highlight image1 by clicking on the title bar. Then go to Select > Colour Range. Pump the fuzziness to 200 and then with the eyedropper, select the black in the image. Click OK. Step 5: Make sure your colour mode is clicking to RGB by going to Image>Mode>RGB colour. Go to Edit > Paste Into or press Ctrl+Shift+V on the keyboard to paste your image into the selection. Thatâ€™s it! Adjustments: - If you wanted the image to have a black background instead of the white, Invert the colours after step 2 by going to Image > adjustments > Invert or Press Ctrl+I - Your blackpaper doesn't necessarily restrict the size of your framework. Just increase the size of the document (image1) to whatever your image2 size is, pixelation isnt a problem here. - Another method to do this and get variable results is: (continuing from step 2) Step 3: Select the image1 by pressing Ctrl+A and then Ctrl+C. Step 4: Open your new image and then just paste (Ctrl+V). Then, just change the blend modes of the newly formed layer. Method #3: If you want your background to be an abstract or somethin' follow on: Step 3: Open a new image (image3), i recommend an abstract. Copy the image Step 4: Click the title bar of Image1, go to Select >Colour Range and then select the white part of the image. Click OK Step 5: Paste the Abstract into the selection by pressing Ctrl+Shift+V or Edit > paste Into. Step 6: Open your forground image (Image2) and copy the entire image. Go to your Image1. Then go to Select > Colour Range and Reduce the Fuzziness to 0. Then click on the black part of the image. OK. Step 7: Paste your forground by pressing Ctrl+Shift+V or Edit > Paste Into. Hereâ€™s my final using the first method: With Abstract (method 3): All comments appreciated. If this tutorial sounded a bit too complicated, please let me know, I'll try and simplify/organise it better. EDIT: Also, If you want to make the abstract background effect (method #3), then let me know, I will post the tutorial for that.
