I came across this yesterday by accident. OOB'ing ( Out Of Border Images ) has a rather large following and some of the stuff that people are producing is stunning..

Here's my 1st attempts, good fun and makes a nice change...

    OOB-ing can be really effective and really beautiful. I've seen some images that take on a 3-d effect because of it.

    I used it once on a large collage of soccer shots:

    I simply followed the tutorials that I found HERE, they are very well written and incredibly easy to follow.

    You're right, it's great fun.....

    I get to the bit where you drag the inside frame about & it then asks you to "select add layer mask icon" but mine are locked out from me ???

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong...

    I've tried to do three of these. Everytime I get to the point where I have to move the shadow, nothing shows up. If I get rid of the eye for the main image, I can then see the gradient layer as well as the frame layer and the shadow layer, but the minute I put the eye back on the layer to view it, a solid color covers the area where I painted.

    Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    Make sure the shadow layer is in the correct position, should be 3rd up from tghe bottom, see the screenshot below, the shadow layer is layer 3.
    You can move layers just by clicking on them and dragging them.

    Wow... so many great OOB's. Thanks to those who offered help on why I wasn't able to create my OOB image correctly, it turned out that when I went to paint the mask layer to expose the gradient, I had clicked on the image instead of the mask, so I was actually painting over the image. DOH

    Anyway, here is my first completed OOB image.

    bowdown.gif You guys are good, I like what you have done.

    I have Photoshop Elements (I know, I know, but $$$ is the issue for me) and found it difficult to do, but managed. Thanks for the tutorial, I learned much. Here is my first attempt.
