Here's an easy frame/edge tutorial. If you have any questions or problems with it, just post up. Sorry but this is only for those using Photoshop 6 & up. It may work with Photoshop Elements and PSP but I'm sure the steps would be slightly different.

2 - Set foreground color to black and select the Brush Tool. Scroll down the list of brushes until you find a brush edge you like. Increase or decrease the size of the brush to the size you want your border edge. Try a couple of stokes until you get something you like. To draw a straight edge, move the brush to a corner of the new window. Hold down the Shift key and drag to the next corner or just click the brush tool in one corner, let go and bring the brush to the next corner and hit the Shift key. That'll also draw the border in a straight line from point to point. Continue until all four edges are completed.

Create a new border/edge file folder to save it in, then name and save your new border/edge as a jpeg file.

3 - With your new frame/edge border file still in Photoshop, press Ctl + I to inverse it in the layers palette. Then select the whole frame/edge by pressing Ctl + A, then press Ctl +C to copy the frame/edge to the clipboard. Next bring up your photo and press Ctl+ V. This will paste the frame/edge as a new layer on top of your photo.

4 - With your frame/edge border highlighted in the Layers palette, change blend mode to Screen. This will give you a white border around your photo. The frame/edge border may be larger or smaller than your photo. No problem.

7 - Create a new layer and add your copyright logo and you're done. You can play around with the opacity and put a new border edge around that border. Color edge/frame borders can be created. Use a canvas textured brush and put a wood frame around it. Many creative things can be done with this technique.

Have fun with it and post up some of your new 2-COOL edge/frames.
