I like the background. It makes a nice change from the usual white or grey.

Many thanks John for your appreciation and not to mentione Award! also I thank you so much to all of you who has spare some time visiting my gallery and giving me courage by apreciating my work and kind words!

Okay, to ringyneck and rpba 18205... here are the steps for you..

1 Open image and duplicate Layer by drag and drop in to create a new layer box below Or simply right click on (existing) Background layer then select Duplicate layer then turn off the background layer by clicking on the eye.
2 Now create Mask next to top layer by clicking on Add layer mask at the bottom of Layer pellet (this is mask for main image)
3 Create new layer by clicking on “Create a new layer” at the bottom and place it to the top by dragging it then select Rectangular marquee tool then click and drag to make a box for the frame.
4 Select Paint bucket tool (Make sure white is forge ground color) then click in to frame area to fill it with white color.
5 Now click Select > Modify > Contract and type 30 then hit enter ( this is going to be width of frame) now hit delete key (you will see the frame now) you may deselect the selection now by going to “Select” menu and select Deselect.
6 Now go to Edit > Transform > Distort and give a shape to your frame as you wish by dragging the corners then create a layer mask (next to top layer) by clicking on Add layer Mask icon at the bottom.
7 Select Brush tool (size 40) with Black as forge ground color this time (you can toggle the white to black by clicking X on keyboard or double arrow next to color box. To remove frame from the subject (So it look like the subject is coming out of the frame/photo)
8 Once again create Add layer Mask and place it above the Background Layer by dragging it down (this is going to be Layer 2).
9 Select Gradient tool and right click on gradient editor box at the top (where you see current gradient colors selected) to select your choice of color gradient or alter as you wish then hit OK.
10 Now Click and drag from top right to bottom left & let go ( you may think nothing has happened but don’t worry your click has done it’s work) now select Layer 2 which is Second from the top and create Layer mask (you know how to do that by now) and select Brush with Black as forge ground color size around 50 then brush over main image (out side of frame except the part of the main image coming out of the frame). … if you make mistake while painting, just click X and pain to reverse and X again to pain normal As BLACK = REMOVE AND WHITE = BRING BACK.
11 Now select Magic wand tool (make sure you have selected the top layer at this point (not the mask) then click once to select (you should see the marching ants around outer side of frame, Go to Select > Inverse (now the marching ant is around the frame)
12 Click on Create a new layer then select Bucket tool with black forge ground color and click once inside of selection (which will fill black color inside of frame area. Now deselect the selection and re position layer below main image and above gradient layer 3. Now select Move tool and move by dragging it so it looks like shadow then hit OK and go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian blur and move slider to create a shadow look & hit Ok. Now go to Opacity and reduce the opacity to around 55. At this point you can crop image if you wish and that’s it. Done! Hope it helps. Do let me know if you need Video tutorial.

An impressive image of extremely high quality. would leave the logo off in these circumstances as it pulls the eye.
