Wrapping a Ribbon Around a Photo (Photoshop/Photoshop Elements)
 by LaWanna Desjardinwww.desjardindigitaldesigns.comLdesjardin@gmail.comOne of my favorite ways to highlight a photo in a simple and elegant way is towrap a ribbon around the photo.Sometimes I like to wrap it around asingle corner while other times, I maywrap it around vertically or horizontally.It's also a nice way to “tie” a stack of  photos together. In Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, this is a prettysimple effect to achieve usingshadowing, along with dodge and burntools.This is the layout I've used for thistutorial. I've already added a shadow tothe photo stack. I will use the ribbon towrap around two corners of the photo.Copyright 2008, LaWanna Desjardin. All Rights Reserved.
1.First you need to position the ribbon how you like it. For this one, I've tilted the ribbon at a 45degree angle. Click the move tool and then on the transform controls. In the options bar, type in45, or your desired angle. The move the ribbon into position. I've put my ribbon over the topleft corner.2.Now I need to eliminate the parts of the ribbon that I don't need. To do this, I'll select the
 photo layers.
Because there are multiple layers, I'll need to make a selection of all three.Press Cntrl+Shift while clicking on the each of the layer 
. Using the Shift keywill allow you to add to each previous selection.Copyright 2008, LaWanna Desjardin. All Rights Reserved.
3. With the selection still active, activate the ribbon layer. Choose Cntrl+J. This will duplicateonly the portion of the ribbon that is within the selection. Delete the remaining portion in thelayer below. (See below.) Now all that is left is the part of the ribbon that wraps around the photo.4.First we will add the shadow.a. Add a layer just beneath the ribbon. To do this, with the ribbon chosen in the palette,Cntrl+click the new layer icon at the bottom of the layer palette. You palette should look like this:Copyright 2008, LaWanna Desjardin. All Rights Reserved.
