    Hi Geoff - thanks for the comments, As you will have guessed from my recent posts I am experimenting with framing and presentation, this was quite easy -
    Select outer frame area, invert and apply G Blur (about 88%) select inner frame, invert and apply G Blur at (about 12%).

    Use Rectangle tool for outer, apply required line thickness and colour, repeat for inner frame area.

    Sounds a bit fiddly but I can now apply quite quickly.

    BTW love the White flowers, I'm still not getting settings quite right with white they tend to come out a bit overdone, yours however are lovely.

    Thumbs up

    Val ~ thanks for your framing reply.
    Very clear instructions - I will try it out next time I am home alone!
    Your pics on your website are great and I like the way it is laid out.
    With your experience behind 35mm cameras and now the knowledge
    you are absorbing from the world of digital it's little wonder your
    photos look so great!! (Oh - and the S2 is pretty good too!!) - keep it up,
    its great to view other peoples photos ~ especially when they are good at
    what they do (like so many others who post here). We are all at different
    levels of experience and knowledge and can all learn something from the
    next person.
    Thanks again - I will let you know how I get on with the framing...
    Geoff

    Hi--

    Val--your shots are so nice

    Jeff31--you inspire me

    Geoff--such wonderful work!

    Ok--
    I'm still learning and trying to figure this stuff out.
    Here is my atempt at the "blurred framing" I keep seeing. I have MS Digital Image Suite, (can't afford the expensive software yet), so the instructions Val gave didn't work for me, but a little playing with it and I found a similar way to do it.
    Tell me what you think--this example may be a bit too blurred??
    Take care all,
    Kristy
