Before starting the steps, we first see the image we will create. Click here to view the actual size.
The very first step is download this sport car images and then open in photoshop.
Next we started making the photo frame, start by creating a new layer named ‘frame’. Create a rectangular selection with the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M) and then using the Paint Bucket Tool (G) fill the selection area with white #FFFFFF.
Press Ctrl+click on ‘frame’ layer to load selection. Go to Select>Modify>Contract to minimize the size of the selection. Fill contract by 20 px. Next remove the white color in this selection area, you can press delete or go to Layer>Layer Mask>Hide Selection.
Press Ctrl+T then right click on the document and select Perspective. Drag the top right corner slightly to the left automatically the top left will shift slightly to the right.
Perform a transformation again as the previous step but now we use the Distort. Drag the top right edge to bottom left and lower right corner to bottom right diagonal direction.
Next use the Pen Tool (P) to create a path around the outside of the frame and car.
Now remove image outside the path. Press Ctrl+enter to make selection, activate the car layer and then select Layer>Layer Mask>Reveal Selection.
Remove white lines that cover the car image, could the Eraser Tool (E) or with a Layer Mask.
Create a new layer behind all layers and fill with white.
As a last step we will give the shadows on the frame. There are several steps to make it. First add a new layer above the layer we created in step 9. Create a selection like the following picture and then fill the area with black #000000.
Drag the shadow layer with the Move Tool (V) slightly downward and to the right. Change the fill layer opacity to 60% and then give a little blur on the layer, click Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur, set the four pixels as the radius.
