I love using clipping masks. All my storyboards and cards at Andie Smith Designs use them. We even have masks that look like frames, why? Because it allows the user the make minor changes.
Create a new canvas
Create a new layer and fill it with any color you want
Choose your eraser and erase the sides… I use multiple brushes and opacities to create a sloppy layered look. Save this as a .psd file for future use.
Drag an image to the top layer.
Press option+command+g (control+alt+g on a PC) and your image should take the shape of layer 2.
you can fill layer 1 with the color of your choice and it looks like a frame!
