Fun challenge! (And also my way of taking a break from designing -- but just for a bit! :) )

Thanks, Conda! I needed a pick-me-up since it's cold and gray here on the east side. :)

All of the designers here offer PNG files with the brush sets. So, even if your program can't utilize the .ABR file, if your program can open PNG files, you will be able to use those just like brushes. They can be resized, used as a mask, used as an eraser or cut-out; they can be colored/re-colored, and adjusted via blend modes and opacity. The only limitation that you will have is that you will be unable to "scatter" them, or use them in a dynamic fashion.


The product description will say if the PNG files accompany the brush set (though they almost always do). But if you are unsure before you purchase an item whether or not the PNG files are included, you can always email the designer.


Hope this helps and welcome to Scrap Girls! :)

OH! OK...haven't seen that tutorial, but here's how I'd do it:
Use the magic wand tool (with contiguous checked) to select the center of the frame.

You will get marching ants. Go to Select>Modify>Expand and select maybe 2 or three pixels.

Make sure you create a new layer and fill the marching ants shape with a solid color and place that layer under your frame layer.

Clip your photo to that shape and adjust the photo's size (CNTRL+T and hold the SHIFT key down while you make it larger or smaller) and it will fit perfectly in the frame.
