I Would like to Show you How to Create really Chic Scalloped Edges for your Pictures.
This Tutorial was inspired by the scalloped by a Tutorial I saw on Pugly Pixel and I though it could be very Nice for Fashion Shots too. I think it adds immediately some Magic and could make your Outfit stand out ! So I have decided to re-create the tutorial for you.
Open your Picture in Photoshop
Expand yourÂ Canvas Size of at least 1 inch all around.
Photoshop will ask you in which color would you like to have the new background. Leave the background White.
Go to Images > Canvas Size
Create a New layer
Color it with the Paint Bucket Tool in a very strong Color. I normally use green for all these type of work.
On the Tool Menu Select the Brushes Tool sometimes it is hidden under the Pencil Tool
Select the Brush Tool and Open the Paint Brush Menu from the Menu
WindowÂ > Brushes > Select the Tip Shape Section
These are the settingsÂ :
Brush size 122 ( I have set it manually)
Than go within your picture, click the Brush on any of the Corner of your Picture and drag it until the other corner.
Repeat it for each side of the Picture.
Now select the Magic Wand Tool
Make sure that the parameters are acativeÂ :
ToleranceÂ : 30
Anti Alias â€“ Active
Contiguos â€“ Active
Than Click anywhere outside the scalloped frame.
Switch the layerÂ : select the background layer
Hit the delet button or ClearÂ from
Edit >Â Clear
Go to the Layers Palette and deselct the EYE from the Color Layer
Fill > White
Crop it if necessaryÂ : and you have your scalopped edgesÂ !
Well the Tutorial is over, I hope that you have enjoyed and that you will use it for many of your Posts !
