Photoshop Tutorials

Note: I know there's already a tutorial on this, but it was for Photoshop Elements. Many people were asking how to do this in other versions of Photoshop....so I made this tutorial for them! =)

First, you need some tape brushes which you can download here.

And a polaroid picture which you can download here.

After you downloaded them, load the brushes to your Photoshop.

Before :

After :

Okay let's start!

Step 1: Open up the image you wanna use. I'm using this one of Audrey Kitching :

Step 2: Make a new document of whatever size you want. I'm using this :

Now drag the Audrey image into this document.

Step 3: Open up the polaroid picture you just downloaded. Copy and paste the polaroid into your new Audrey Kitching document.

Step 4: Resize the polaroid and the Audrey image so they fit into your document. Place the Audrey image into the polaroid picture by clicking on the Move tool (or press V). And also, slant the whole polaroid picture so it looks a bit stylish. xD

Step 5: Remember, resize it in such a way that there's enough space for the tape to show. Now click on your Brush tool and select any of the tape brushes you downloaded :

Step 6: And apply it over the edges of the polaroid like this :

Step 7: Now you're done! I added some text and lil heart brushes to it and...voila!
There you have your polaroid picture with a cute tape!

Save it as a .psd image.
And the font I used is called Inspiration. =)

Hope you all enjoyed this tut. :D
