Today I have a new set of 8×10 storyboards that have digital drop-shadow mats. I personally don’t like to buy paper mats for my photos when I frame them, so I design my own custom ones with drop-shadows, add my images, and print and frame ! Super easy and no one knows the difference unless they take your frame apart.
This set contains 5 mats for Photoshop/PSE. You add images using the clipping masks and then adjust the drop-shadow effect to taste. The “paper” mat’s color can also be changed to coordinate with your house or image.
Feel free to change the size of the mats before adding your images. You can also add digital paper to the mats, I will post a tutorial later this week. These storyboards can also be posted on the web.
A special thanks to Lisa Rubel Photography (website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) for allowing me to use her stunning images in my example storyboard.
