Always remember to duplicate your tube and close the original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer
D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
*Let's Get Started*
Open a new image 600x250, open paper 1 c/p resize by 90% .
Open paper 3, c/p the lower the opacity to 45%, now merge down and crop opaque.
Open your tube c/p resize if needed, position where you want it duplicate, guassian blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to Overlay then add a d/s to the original tube layer.
Open roses corner 1 c/p resize by 35% move to the right the duplicate/mirror merge down and add d/s.
Open ribbon 6 c/p resize by 40% position add d/s.
Add anymore elements you want when your happy merge visable and apply AAA-Foto Frame, Width is 8 everything stays the same.
I did a second example you can see that below, after you merge add new layer select all/contract by 6 invert and floodfill with a red color from the kit i used #520707, add noise Uniform/50/Monochrome checked,deselect and then add a thin black gradient glow width 3.00 just so the frame pops a bit.
For the Avatar, Open new image 150x150 c/p your tag resize by 85% and arrange where you like it
For AAA-Foto Frame border do as before but change the width to 6.
for Noise Border so as before and again change the width to 4.
