Need help with effects.

Hello everybody, I am new the board (found on google) and I am glad I found this forum. I did some looking around and seem to get the feeling that the people here are helpful. Anyways, I am trying to figure out how to get these affects show on this mixtape cover that I attached below.

Does anybody know about these effects or a link to how to do them?

Re: Need help with effects.

Welcome to the forum. The chain and watch appear to be a lens flare brush or layer with the opacity changed to make it see through. The white stroke around him looks to be how they cut him out such as he had a white background in the photo they took. Or maybe a white silhouette under the original picture and erased the silhouette in certain parts. Theres a number of ways to achieve that effect i believe.

Re: Need help with effects.

Thanks for your feedback, I was thinking maybe it was a silhouette but I am not 100% sure. Anybody else have any ideas on how to get this effect done? Does anybody else think the artist also did some kind of effect to the rapper and background. It's like the whole image belends so well.
