Feathering

This tutorial will show you how to create a feathered border around your object. A feathered border is one that blends out gradually as opposed to being solid and can really add depth to your images!

Firstly, you will need to open a new canvas, filled with the colour you wish your border to be. Make sure that the canvas is a decent size larger than your image, then paste the image into the canvas as a new selection. Your image should be surrounded by dashed, moving lines:

Then, go to Selections > Modify > Expand, like so:


Click to view full sized image

A popup should appear, where you can change the thickness of the line you are going to feather. In my example, I am going to set this at 2.
Next, go to Selections > Modify > Feather (Ctrl+H) like so:


Click to view full sized image

Another popup should appear, this time the number or pixels will determine how wide your feathering will be. The greater the number, the greater the blending will be. When you are done, hit OK and Voila!

You can now copy this and paste it directly onto another image.
