I wanted to post some more free vintage frames for you. Yes, I love making frames
and you can download all of them, including storyboards, here. I made these today using brushes (this tutorial inspired me) and some paper textures. These three frames all have torn ragged edges and are high resolution .png files so you can use them for print or the web.
Instead of clipping masks (I realize many of you are still not comfortable with using them), I am trying something easier. These frames are simple .png files with transparent backgrounds. You add your image by dragging it under the frame. Then free transform (Ctrl-T) the image to fit. If the image is too big and some of it is hanging out on the sides of the frame, just click on the image layer and then select the areas of the images outside the frame with the rectangular Marquee tool (M) and hit delete.
If you are adding this frame on a white background, flatten and save as a jpg. If you are using it on a colored background, either save as a .png file (do not flatten) or add a color fill layer on the bottom that matches your background and save as a flattened jpg.
I hope you enjoy these frames! You can download the CoffeeShop Frames 4 here.
