Triple polaroid frame

A quick tutorial on how to use this frame:

Open the photo or picture you want to use, make a copy, cloe the original, and drag the copy under the frame layer. Resize if necessary and position to your liking.

Duplicate after resizing and repositioning, and close the duplicate layer.

Go to the polaroid layer and click anywhere outside with your Magic Wand. You will see the marching ants around the outside of the frame. Selections – Invert, then Selections – Contract and contract by about 4, then Selections – Invert again. Now go to your picture layer and hit delete. Select none.

You can leave it as it is, or you can liven it up a little. Unhide the copy of your picture and select the details you want to add.

I chose the boat’s mast and a part of building in the background.

Grab your selection tool, set to rectangle, and draw a small rectangle around the detail you want to add. Edit – Copy. Now add a new raster layer (Layer – New) and make sure it is above the frame layer. Make sure you are on the new raster layer, then Edit – Paste into selection. Select – None.

Go to your top layer and carefully erase the unnecessary parts.

Repeat the same procedure for any other details you want to add.

When you are finished with adding the details you want, delete the copy, merge visible, and you’re done!

Have fun!
