Here's How:
  1. Download and extract Polaroid_Frame.zip.
  2. Open one of the two Polaroid frame files (PSD or PNG version) in your photo editing software.
  3. Open the photo you want to put into the Polaroid Frame.
  4. Select an area of the photo, slightly larger than the portion of the photo you want to show through the frame.
  5. Copy the selection, go to the Polaroid frame file and paste. The photo selection should go onto a new layer. Some photo editing software has a special "Paste as New Layer" command.
  6. Move the photo layer so it is below the "Polaroid Frame" layer in the layer stacking order.
  7. If necessary, move and resize the photo layer so it shows through the cutout in the Polaroid Frame, without sticking out around the edges.
  1. If you use Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, after step 6 above, you can use the "Layer > Group with Previous" command to ensure the photo remains inside the frame.
