I learned a terrific new Photoshop technique today from my friend Mike Cherim over at Green-Beast.com. Mike demonstrated how to make a simulated wooden picture frame, and my attempt at doing so is shown in the image to the right.
Not only did Mike write an article about the technique, but when I posted a question about difficulties I was having implementing his suggestions, he went out of his way to find an answer for my problem and post it on his website.
Many thanks as usual, Mike! How does the image I created with your help look?
