Creating Knock Out groups in Photoshop

I have worked out how to use knock outs in Photoshop and am delighted they are easy to do! A knock out is basically a window that lets other layers show through so you can create a frame and place a photograph underneath so it appears in the frame. The beauty of it is, the window can be any shape and can become part of the theme of the layout.

I knocked this up quick to show you – it’s very basic but captures my cat’s mesmeric stare and subliminal command…. Give Me Chicken….

I’ll put together a couple of basic layouts with fancy knock outs in the next day or so and share them here with a quick tutorial on how to create your own as well. Watch this space!
