And this is simply the scan of the end …leaf of a page of an old book. Let's hide that one. …The first thing we want to do is to make a frame of around this photograph to make …it look more like an original old photograph.…

But the trouble here is that very hard to …make it centered on top of the photograph. …So you might say that looks about right but in fact the left side of the frame is …wider than the right side and its difficult to get the 2 to work out correctly. …So that's the select that, here's a much quicker way. …
