Photoshop Frame Tutorial

Would you like to learn how to easily put a frame on your photos?

Like this one;






I've learned the first part of this tutorial from Kristine, and it's so easy once you've done it a couple of times. The last part here is easy too. All you need is Adobe Photoshop, and you're ready.

You can enlarge all the photos. Makes it easier to see the small details (buttons you're supposed to click on, the order of the layers and so on).


1. Open the picture you want to use in Photoshop.



2. Press Ctrl+J to make a copy of the picture (Layer 1).



3. Remove the "eye" from the bottom layer (background).



4. Open the frame you want to use (this should be a PNG-file).



5. Click on the Move Tool.



6. Drag the frame over to your photo, and then press Ctrl+T. This will allow you to change the size of the frame so that you can make it fit perfectly.



7. When you're done draging the frame over the whole picture, press enter.



8. Drag the layer at the top (Layer 2) below the other layer (Layer 1). It should now look like this in the Layers Window (Layer 1, Layer 2, Background).



9. Right-click on Layer 1 and click on Create Clipping Mask (or Ctrl+G).



10. The frame should be in the right place now. Don't forget to save.



If you want to change the color of the frame then keep reading...


11. Continue exactly where you left it (don't close the picture you were working on). Make another copy of the picture (press Ctrl+J).



12. Drag the newest layer (Layer 1 Copy) below Layer 2. The order should now be Layer 1, Layer 2, Layer 1 Copy and Background.



13. Find the color you want from the Color Picker.



14. Click on the Paint Bucket Tool.



15. Now all you have to do is click at the photo where you know the frame is suppose to be. The frame and the color you chose will appear.



16. We're all done! Save!!




I've shared two different frames with you. It's okay to download them, but I hope you will mention my name when you use them.

you are such a sweetheart- thanks for the tutorial!

Ja se der!! Tusen takk for super beskrivelse, selv jeg klarer å følge denne. Tror jeg ... for det vil si, jeg plages litt. Jeg har kommet til create clipping mask, men rammen kommer ikke frem på bildet ... hmmm!!

Har du husket å kopiere i begynnelsen, og å ta bort øyet?

Hei min venn.

Så du spurte om bidrag til OLW. Ja, du kan bidra så mange ganger du vil! :)
Ha en fin kveld.

Hei igjen!!
Ja jeg har kopiert og fjerna øyet ... har prøvd flere ganger jeg nå, og følger til punkt å prikke, men får ikke frem rammen. Skal prøve med et annet bilde etterhvert!!

Camilla May 10, 2009 at 9:23 PM  

Hei! Tusen takk for lån av rammer! Jeg har testet dem ut. Og det var gøy! Og så fine de er!!
Jeg hadde sammen problem som Monika, men istede for å bruke create clipping mask (som ikke fantes), trykket jeg Ctrl G, da var rammen på bildet!:)
Klem, Camilla.

Hejsan
Tack för att du delar med dig av din kunskap. Ska genast testa. Tack för ramarna också. Naturligtvis kommer jag att länka om jag använder dem på nätet
Ha det gott

Thx for the fab tutorial! I just got Photoshop Elements 8. I followed your steps but have a question regarding #9. Right-click on Layer 1 and click on Create Clipping Mask (or Ctrl+G). When I right-click on Layer 1 I don't have the option Create Clipping Mask but I was able to click Ctrl+G and that worked. Do you know why I don't have the Create Clipping Mask on my version, Photoshop Elements 8?

My email is lorittalo@hotmail.com

xoxo,
Lori
