saw this technic done on an image on the net a while ago and tried it, there wasnt enough of the image to make it nice and square but did the best i could, it makes it look 3d ish compared to the full image what looks flat and boreing

the process isnt that hard

u need something like photoshop that lets u work in layers

that image isnt the most appealing to look at because it was never framed to do such a thing to, it was just a play to see if i could do it

first thing is to try to work out what bit u want to keep, i make a wide white border on a new layer and move it around and distory it with free tansform till its roughly how i want it

next cut away the main stuff u dont want ie all the right side the cut round the fence post and delete what u dont want.

the tricky bit is the cutting round the flowers, that took a long time. the more carefull u are the better the end result.

when its all cut out u just have to deal with the white boarded that passes in front of certain bits, the flowers and the post, make the border layer transparent enough to see through so u can cut away bits what cover flowers and post, this will give the impression the border goes behind

when thats done merge the cut out layer and border and add a drop shadow to give it some body and help make it look 3d, then add a colour background it u like

i hope that will help, to anyone who uses photoshop it isnt hard really it just takes time !
