3D Frame Border in Photoshop: A Step-by-Step Guide

Are you looking to add a unique and eye-catching frame to your images in Photoshop? Look no further! In this tutorial, we'll show you how to create a stunning 3D frame border in Photoshop.

Prerequisites

  • Adobe Photoshop CC (or higher)
  • Basic knowledge of Photoshop's tools and interface

Step 1: Create a New Document

  • Open Photoshop and create a new document by going to File > New > Document.
  • Set the dimensions of your document to your desired size. For this tutorial, we'll use a 1000 x 1000 pixel document.
  • Set the resolution to 300 pixels per inch (ppi) and the color mode to RGB.

Step 2: Create a Frame Shape

  • Create a new layer by going to Layer > New > Layer or by pressing Ctrl + Shift + N (Windows) or Command + Shift + N (Mac).
  • Name this layer "Frame" and set the layer mode to Multiply.
  • Use the Rectangle Tool (U) to draw a rectangle around your image. Make sure to hold down the Shift key while drawing to create a perfect square.
  • Make the frame slightly larger than your image by about 10-15 pixels on each side.

Step 3: Add Depth to the Frame

  • Duplicate the "Frame" layer by going to Layer > Duplicate Layer or by pressing Ctrl + J (Windows) or Command + J (Mac).
  • Rename the duplicated layer to "Frame Shadow".
  • Use the Move Tool (V) to move the "Frame Shadow" layer slightly down and to the right, creating a shadow effect.
  • Use the Layer Style options to add a drop shadow to the "Frame Shadow" layer. Go to Layer > Layer Style > Drop Shadow and set the shadow to your desired settings.

Step 4: Add a 3D Effect

  • Select the "Frame" layer and go to Filter > Render > 3D > Repousse.
  • In the Repousse window, set the Depth to around 10-15 pixels and the Scale to around 100-150%.
  • Click OK to apply the 3D effect.

Step 5: Add a Bevel and Emboss

  • Select the "Frame" layer and go to Layer > Layer Style > Bevel and Emboss.
  • In the Bevel and Emboss window, set the Style to Inner Bevel and the Technique to Soften.
  • Adjust the Size and Softness to your desired settings.
  • Click OK to apply the bevel and emboss effect.

Step 6: Add a Gradient Overlay

  • Select the "Frame" layer and go to Layer > Layer Style > Gradient Overlay.
  • In the Gradient Overlay window, set the Gradient to a metal or chrome-like gradient.
  • Adjust the Opacity and Scale to your desired settings.
  • Click OK to apply the gradient overlay effect.

Step 7: Add Your Image

  • Place your image inside the frame by creating a new layer and placing it below the "Frame" layer.
  • Use the Move Tool (V) to position your image inside the frame.

Step 8: Final Touches

  • Adjust the layer styles and effects to your desired settings.
  • Save your image as a JPEG or PNG file.

And that's it! You now have a stunning 3D frame border in Photoshop. Experiment with different layer styles, effects, and gradients to create a unique frame that suits your image.
