Polaroid Pic on transparent background made in Paint Shop Pro X2

I posted a tutorial HERE on how I made this in Paint Shop Pro X2. I created the Polaroid frame from scratch, rotated the image and made the background transparent. It was the transparent background thing that I was trying to learn -everything else was a bonus. I am linking here since, while it is not spefically QAF related, I did use a picture of Randy!

Pushing the bottoms together and then pretty them up!

This little tutorial came about when I was talking to vlredreign about how to crop difficult pictures. She was working with the cap we're gonna use, and had trouble getting the boys to 'fit' inside the 100x100 frame. The idea about maybe writing a bit of a tutorial for this 'problem' popped up and... here we are! The idea and composition for the finished product is all credit to vlredreign!

We're going from:

Banner tutorial that is cloudylicious

Today we'll be trying to make a banner using wicked, sloppy fuzzy masks, photos of clouds, seamless blending and no pen/lasso tool whatsoever. And of course, adjustment layers are a must, because it's summer.



Proposition of serving:

*Image is for reference mainly and actual product appearance may vary. :p


Of course, straying from the appointed path by changing images and settings is more exciting, so if you do it, you can make me proud by showing what you made :3

Requirements:
Photoshop cs2 (I think it should work in PS7 too, but am not 100% sure), basic knowledge of masks, adjustment layers, blending modes.
