Create a “matted” photo to fit in a stock frame

June 20, 2016

We all love to frame our photos and hang them on the wall or provide them as gifts.  What happens is that if you have an irregularly shaped photo this means either a custom frame and/or mat.  This video tutorial shows how to put irregularly shaped photo onto a “mat” of a standard size such as 8 x 10.  Effects such as adding a texture to the mat are included as well as creating a drop shadow or bevel on the photo.

Tutorial was done in Photoshop CS 6 yet is applicable to any version as can be useful for those using Elements (you won’t have all the features of drop shadows and textures)
