1. Copy the original picture:
Copy the image so is still the original, and the copy job.

2. Consider the final size:
Before leaving crop the image enough background so you can feather the edges.

3. Touch the picture:
Erase areas in the background that distract from the quality of the image with the rubber seal or retouching tool. Adjust the contrast and brightness, if necessary.

4. Select the area you want pen:

Use one of the selection tools to highlight the area you want feathers. The picture on the left shows the rectangular marquee tool being selected. Use this tool to square or rectangular boundaries, or the oval tool framework for rounded edges or the Lasso tool to images of strange shapes (the Lasso tool is just below the marquee tool).


5. Make a even border :

To highlight its border evenly on all sides become the rule and measure the same number in the directory of numbers in both width and height. The right image is set to inches and the border is set to 3/10 of an inch at each corner. Its border can be more or less.

6: Choose background color:

You will be copying the image and pasting it onto another background but first you need to set the background color of the new image. The background color needs to be the same as the color of the page you are going to paste it on, i.e., you need to chose a black background for a black page.


7. Choose the background color:
You will copy the image and paste it into another fund, but first you need to set the background color of the new image. The background color should be the same as the color of the page to be pasted into, that is, you have to choose a black background for a black page.

Click the bottom tool and choose the preferred color by clicking a color in the palette, or if you prefer to use a color that is not listed in the Color Pallet can enter another hexadecimal code for the color. If you want to match the bottom of the page use the dropper to get the hex color of the background and type in that number.


8. Pen image:


Now, back to the highlighted image and choose “select / feather” from the menu and then choose a range of 4-12 pixels to determine the width of the feathered edge. You can not see a change, but only proceeding to the next step.

9. Copy and paste image


Now choose “Edit / Copy” and “new.” Photoshop automatically opens a new box size image that you copied. Be sure to specify the background color. Now choose “Edit / Paste” and the image of pen should appear in the box that just opened.

10. Save the new image
Select “edit / save” and is now on unless you want to “edit / copy / paste” the feathered image into another image. The finished image as it appears on a black background appears below:
