What is OOB? OOB stands for Out Of Bounds. Pretty cool way to edit your photos to look as if it comes alive!
Here are some of the easy steps to get this done!
First of all, download the Bird photo here - (Taken by me at Bird's Park, Kuala Lumpur)
Open new document, go to File> New. Set the width to 800 and the height to 400. Once you've done, fill the Background layer to red (#550000) or any colors that you like.
Make another layer on top of the background layer. Use the Brush tool and click in the middle of the document using brighter red color (#9a0000) or other colors.
Copy and paste the "Bird's" photo onto this document.
Create another layer above the bird's photo. This is the frame layer. Use the "Rectangular Marquee Tool" to draw a rectangular shape outline just like above. Next fill it with black color.
Once you've done that, select the "Rectangular Marquee Tool" again and draw a smaller rectangular shape on black color filled area and go to Edit> Clear to delete it. Now you
should see a black frame on the bird's photo.
You need to distort the frame like above. To do this, go to Edit> Transform> Distort. You'll see 8 points around the frame. Click and drag those points to distort the frame.
Now the frame is done. It's time to erase the outer part of the bird's photo using the cutting tools, either Polygonal Lasso or the Pen tool. Make sure you erase the circled parts on the bird photo as well (See above)
Can you see that bird is now popping out from the frame? Cool isnt it. Now to make it way cooler and realistic, let's add some shadows beneath the frame.
Make a new layer above the "Glow" layer. Use the Paint tool and click below the frame to create the shadow.
Go to Edit> Transform> Distort to transform the shadow just like above.
You can use the Eraser tool to adjust the shadow and guess what! You're done!
Here are some of the other samples created by me using different types of photos. It's all up to your imagination!
