To divide image and frame
- Use guide

- Select the shape you wish eg rectangle specify the size (pixels)
- Use a locked shape if you want photos the same size.
- Drag where you want it (they will snap against the guides)
- Add a solid colour adjustment layer tab times by how many photos you want
- File -> Place -> find your image
- If the image is bigger than the shape get one of the edges to match up to the shape
- Create a clipping group, hold ALT and click the line between the image and the shape (assuming in the layers section they are) times by how many photos you are displaying
- To change the background colour click adjustment options -> solid colour -> then the colour
To click once creates a point
Click elsewhere and this creates a line between the two.
To create a closed shape click three or more points then click the first one you put down – you can fill a colour inside.
Click and shift creates a perfect rectangle.
Clicking and dragging will create a line coming from a point – a more gentle curve pull downwards.
Click drag and ALT is right angles
Hover over a point and see a minus sign will delete the point
Hover over a line and see a plus sign this adds a point.
To create a cloud
- Select a fill colour
- Click a point and drag it and then another.
- Hold the ALT key – changes the convert anchor tool allowing to break the handle and get another curve moving upwards. And so on.
- Selection tool – allows us to tweek.
- Converter anchor tool – select a point and drag one way and it will twist the other.
