This video is about creating a digital painting effect from a Photograph.
The technique used makes use of several features of Photoshop and Camera Raw that are covered in previous videos.

How to create a Classic Polaroid Border in Photoshop.
In this video we not only create a vintage border, but we also create a photo gallery template.
Because this is a template we can reuse it to create further galleries. The idea is to save the document and then to use the smart objects inside the document to replace the images you previously selected.
Save your work to a different document each time and create a series of galleries highlighting your work.
Change the background and you can create a different mood and feel for your gallery.
