This tutorial will Show you how to use decorative overlays on your photographs.
Learning level – Beginner
I am using Floral Decorative overlay frames with slightly rounded off edges .(I’m using Adobe Photshop Creative Suite 3 *PSCS4* in this tutorial, but you can achieve this same thing in any Photo Editing program that supports PNG files. i.e. Photoshop Elements, etc.)
1. Go to: FILE>OPEN> & find your photo.
1. Go to: FILE>OPEN>and open up any of the frames that you would like to use as an overlay , here i browsed and opened up a frame from the calender photoshop brushes set (remember? facebook fans received it for free? still free to download through the store)
When you have opened the png You will see some Grey and white boxes behind around the frames don’t be alarmed since it is a png file this area means it is transparent.
i chose to use this frame go ahead right click and save it to your disk if you want.
3. With your Move Tool, drag & drop your photo ON TOP of the black PNG file. Your Layer Palette will look like this.
