    Double template+hole for PSP logo

    Single template

    Photoshop Tutorial for double templates

    1.Open up doubletemplate.jpg in photoshop either a plain one or one with the hole cut out so you can see the PSP logo.

    2.Click on the magic wand tool (shortcut w) and hold shift down and click in the middle of of both of the psp outlines.(if a double skin with the hole click to the side of the hole not in it)

    3.Open up the image of your choice select the rectangular marquee tool (shortcut m) right click your image and select duplicate layer, then select the destination document as doubleskin.jpg then ok.

    4.Click on to the doubleskin template then click on to add layer mask in the layers panel.

    5.Then click on background in the layers panel and then go to file, save as and save it as a .jpg and name it anything you want.
