How to Outline Your Images in Photoshop
We’ll start by taking a photo of our dog and outlining him using the Background Overlay color adjustment. To ensure the coloring is a little more dramatic, we’ll change the Background Color and blending mode of the gradient to Pressure and Smart Sharpen. Step 1: Create a new document. Step 2: Adjust the corners of the image. Step 3: Set the position to have the top left corner at the left edge, top right corner at the right edge, top center at the bottom edge, bottom right corner at the bottom edge, and bottom center at the bottom edge. Adjust the blending mode to Screen to ensure the colors on the top right and bottom left corners will blend evenly. Step 4: Set the layer style to Linear Burn.
Add a Fade Color or Gradient to Your Photo
In the above example, we see how simple it is to add a fade color or gradient to the upper half of an image using Photoshop. We’ll highlight the most important aspects of this technique. 1) Select the location to apply the fade color to. I’m using the brightest area on the image (top left corner). 2) Adjust the area we will be applying the fade to by clicking on the Gradient tab (Lighten) and then selecting the color that will be used to fade it (Blue). 3) Find the region we will be using as our fill color for our fade. I’m using this area on the bottom half of the image (top right corner). 4) Click on the Fill Color tab (White) and then find our fill color. I’m using this color and the color setting to get a lighter looking fade.
Add a 3-Dimensional Border With Texture
Let’s begin by creating a new document in Photoshop. We’ll be using an 8.5″ x 11″ document so we can fit 8 images on each side of the page. I recommend that you download and save the final version of the template image we’re going to work with. Drag and drop your template file onto the canvas and adjust the page size. We’ll be following the image border template. We’ll first select all eight images and then make sure that the image borders are set to your new document’s image dimensions. We’ll also position the images so that each one is 180° apart. Now we can begin using the grid to create our outline. The image grid you create will work for most images, but we’re going to see if we can push the boundaries a bit with the border.
Add a White Frame
In the previous tutorial, we covered how to add a subtle border around an image to make it stand out from the rest. In the following video, we’ll cover adding a simple white frame around the edges of your photos. It’s quick and easy, and it gives your image a polished and professional look. There are a lot of different borders that you can use with Photoshop to frame your photo and make it look unique, so we’ll go over some of our favorites in this tutorial.

Tips for Using the Outlining Technique
In order to achieve some of the most notable outlines, you’ll need to create some custom masking, but there are many ways to do this. There are three styles of outlining that are generally used in photography. Outlining in color. Outlining in black and white. Outlining in grayscale. Outlining in color. In a way, the whole process for coloring an image using outlines is the same as coloring in the spaces between lines of text using a word processor. We’re going to be outlining in color, but it is the same concept, just a different way of thinking. Color in the background with some white outlines on top. This technique is easy to achieve because it doesn’t require any special tricks or tools to be able to select the background color from the image.
