How did you get the black around the edges? I have a few pictures that could be fixed with that, but I can't figure out how to do it in PS 7. Thanks, Marsanne

Re: how to remove shadow or change background inst

OK, had to go back and do it again to remember how!
After I removed the background with the background tool
I cloned it to a black background. I didnt like the edgy effect that left me with
so I added the antique vignette frame, I may have also added like a 50 black border first, but you can tell if you need to make the pic larger or not on how the frame fits or doesnt fit.
add the frame, then using the color change tool change background that is left after framing.
I hope this helps, Im not a very good instructor by any way nor means! I psp by the seat of my pants, that is why I rarely write down how I got what I came up with.
Let me know if there is anything else I can add, I may be able to bump my memory more.
