moderators, i tried to make a new topic in the subforum 'Learn your stuff' but it won't let me.
so if you guys feel it's appropiate you can just redirect this post into that subforum (Y)
Note: This tutorial is for Photoshop CS only. You will not be able to do it w/ Photoshop elements.
STEP ONE: Pick a pic (haha, stole that from Happyslip)
The higher quality, the better.
It's harder to work w/ small & low quality pictures.
Here's the picture I chose.
It's of Melissa R,
do you guys know her? LOL
STEP TWO: Create a new document.
Make sure the color mode is RGB
STEP THREE: Drag the picture into the document using the move tool.
You don't want to crop the picture, because you won't get a nice effect.
Play around with it, and resize it w/ the move tool.
Make sure Show Transform Controls is checked at the top.
That will make it easier to resize.
Tip: Don't change your picture from small to big because you lose the original quality of the picture.
I resized it to this:
