ok. i'm doing this off of PSE 5 so it might be slightly different for other PSE users who have a different one, but it should be close the the same.

step 1. find a good pic. i used this one: (feel free to use mine if you like)


step 2. open it in PSE, and then open a new document. (i always size mine to 640x480 then resize when done)

step 3. drag photo into new document

step 4. duplicate photo (see pic)


step 5. drag the photo until it is lined up under the first.

step 6. rotate photo until it is completely reversed. this can be done by clicking the circle under the photo (for turning it) and then going to the top and typing in 180 (see pic)


step 7. skew the photo. this can be done by RIGHT clicking the cirlce under the photo and selecting skew. after you have done that go to the boxes on the bottom corners of the photos and pull them out until you get them in a way that looks right to you (each photo will be different) (see pic)


step 8. change the visibility of the duplicate to ghosted. (see pic)


step 9. go to filters>blur>guassian blur


step 10. i set my blur to 2.5, but you don't have to. again, play with it until it looks right to you because each pic will be different.


here is the finished product:


any questions?
show us how you did!
