Before we get started, there are some terms that are different from PSP but can easily be duplicated.

Scale – this means to resize. Either copy & paste your element/paper/tube onto your working canvas or where you are directed to do it. Then, instead of using the resize command, you will activate your move tool. With the ‘show transform controls’ box checked, put your cursor on the upper left corner. Press shift + click & drag toward the center to resize. Pretty easy, right?

Masks – using masks in PS is quite a bit different from PSP. For this, please visit this page for an easy tutorial on how to do it.

Ok now we can get started!

Open Paper 1. Resize to 600 x 600. Drag your paper onto your frame canvas. Center manually. Move below the frame layer. On the frame layer, use your magic wand tool & click inside the frame You may also have to select the tiny parts of the frame that didn’t automatically select. Select, modify, expand by 5. On the paper layer, select, inverse & press delete. Deselect.

Open Paper 9. Resize to 600 x 600. Drag onto your working canvas. Center manually. Move this layer to the bottom. Open your mask & resize to 600 x 600. Apply your mask to the bottom paper layer. Convert to smart object, then rasterize this layer.
