Tutorial on a Mask with a Frame

Recommended Posts

Is there a tutorial that shows you how to put a frame over a mask, but to sort of interweave the frame into the mask so just parts of the frame show?

Do you want the look of a fall out frame like these:

I don't know of a tutorial, but I can tell you what I do.

  1. clip photo to mask
  2. merge
  3. add and size a frame graphic on a new layer on top
  4. on photo layer, erase areas that go past the frame, but leave area that you want to "fall out" of frame
  5. on frame layer, erase the part of the frame to allow the "fall out"
  6. use an eraser with 50% opacity to blend the spots where you want the frame to start its disappearance

On my page, I did an opposite effect - instead of the photo spilling out over the frame, the photo spills out under it.  So I did steps 1 to 4.

I was thinking of doing the effect you describe where the photo is under the frame, but parts of the frame are covered by the photo.

Great fall out frames. Going in my wish list, along with other frames.
