Instructions for Photoshop Elements

  1. Create a new document to fit your frame.
  2. Select a background and add to document.
  3. Use shapes to arrange ovals and rounded rectangles.
  4. Lay photos over top and group with shapes (Ctrl + G).
  5. Add elements and words that will fit the theme.
  • Convert photos to black and white for a unified look.
  • If your frame is larger than 12 inches long, create the document at 200 dpi to keep your program running quickly. You will still get a crisp, clear print.
