Make a drop shadow (or other) frame in Photoshop

  1. edited image in PS
  2. Choose rectangular marquee tool
  3. place dotted lines (marching ants) around image as desired.
  4. Mac:  command C/command V

PC: whatever you use for copy/paste

  1. Choose layers and fx at lower left
  2. Choose drop shadow (you can choose others but this is a good one)
  3. Layer style screen comes up. Normal or Multiply for mode/360 for angle if you wish frame all around image, I usually keep ‘distance’ at 0 and play with spread and size sliders. Play with opacity. You can choose colour of frame easily from the palette or by using the eye dropper tool on the image.
