One element that is usually found in a digital scrapbook kit is a png frame. A png frame is a frame with transparent pixels inside. I like to use photo masks for all my photos because it makes it easier to re-size and rotate my photos. Making a photo mask for a PNG frame that is square or retangular is easily done with the rectangular shape tool. But what about more complex PNG frames? I describe the method to create a photo mask for a PNG frame using Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 in this video. The steps are the same in Photoshop.
