Default Frame

In response to Lello's question on Drop shadow frame, I thought this might be a topic of interest for many so will leave some instructions here. You can find a lot of softwares for frame, but you can easily make a number of them by the monkey ranch photography software, yes the "One size fit all" Photoshop. I use CS but all versions provide similar functions.

1- Unlock the back ground picture (This is the missed step for most people when they see picture won't get the droped shadows the way they want).
Just double click on your image in "Layer box".

Rest are all on the image, just follow the instruction.

BTW the good thing about photoshop is that you can get the same result in many ways. Some shorter or easier than other.

Also by changing the parameters to the way you like, you can find numerous combinations of interesting other options that are sure fun to explore so have fun.

The excellent freeware program Photofiltre has a drop shadow option - easy to adjust - for those without PS

Thanks Sassan
Nice bit of work.

No amount of security is worth the suffering of a life lived chained to a routine that has killed your dreams.
