Do you have example of what you mean? Photoshop can give you an embossed frame.
Dont remember but i saw it in here somewhere. Where is it in P/S ? Buggered if i can see it.
It makes the photo look as if its raised off the background & puts a frame around it.
Thats it ! How do i get that ?
or even this...
the frame is really cool.
The picture is too. Blow stuff up.

Sure you can, I'm using 6 right now. You just have to follow pathfinder's directions carefully. Are you losing track of what he's saying anywhere in the process?
Does it show ?
Surely i can buy a prog to do it ?
You're spending money you don't need to. It's about 6 steps.
1/ Open yer pic.
2/ Hit control-J. You've just copied the pic and stacked one on top of the other.
3/ Make sure your colors are right. On the tool bar on yer screen, make sure white is the top color, black the bottom one. Click on the litle icon bottom left of the two boxes if you're not sure.
4/ Show us yer Layers box! If it's not on your screen, put it there. Look at the top of yer screen, click on Window. About 3/4 of the way down is Layer. Click on it.
5/ When Layers box is on your screen, you'll see it has two rectangles in it. The top one's called Layer 1. The bottom one's called Background. Click on Background.
6/ Go to the top of your screen again. Click on Image. 1/2 way down is Canvas... Click on it.
7/ Up pops a dialogue box. Add 10% to both the height and width. Just do the mental math and type in the new number in each box. Click OK.
8/ Suddenly, yer pic has a white layer around it. Almost home.
9/ Back to your Layers dialogue box. This time don't click on Background, click on Layer 1 instead.
10/ Back to the top of yer screen again. Click on Layers. 1/4 the way down is Layer Style. Click on it. A selection menu slides out. Pick Drop Shadow.
11/ Play with it to your heart's content. You're done, mate.
