  1. Wow, great video. Love the style of this effect. I will have to watch this again and try it side by side with an image of my own! Thank you so much for this

  2. Hi I was trying trying to follow your video but when I draw the white picture frame around part of the subject the white part covers the part of the image I want the frame to cover, what am I doing wrong? Thanks for your wonderful video, I hope I can make it work

  3. Love your tutorials, very concise and succinct. I am trying to comprise an image of a building coming out of a CAD Plan any ideas how I can make it look as if the 3D house has come from the plan?

  4. Great tutorial. I just saw a similar effect on another video and they used a vector mask. This allowed them to do the box and stroke at the same time. I have seen the term vector mask, but have never used it or seen it in use. But, I love your tutorials and this concept! Please come back to Dallas sometime soon!

  5. Hello! I’ve watched your videos for both 2016 and 2017 MacBooks and I have one question. I have a great PC but I want a Mac for almost six years and now I need a laptop too. So do you think the 15 inch 2018 MacBook will be a good choice for a first Apple computer? And also what size of iPad do you prefer- 10.5 or 12.9? Thank you and sorry for the stupid questions! 😊😊

  6. Hi Colin, Thanks again for this fantastic tutorial ! I'm just wondering why you choose to draw a white rectangle at 3:30 rather than make a copy of the original image. I think doing this would have allowed you to "distort" the waterfall in the background while warping the "photo print". I suppose this would also have demanded a little stamping to avoid a double image of the kayaker.

  7. Awesome tutorial, I've​ watched many people do tutorials on Out of Bounds and this is by far the best and easiest one to follow that I have watched.

  8. Excellent tutorial Collin. Glad that someone like you is doing this.

    I have a totally unrelated question for you though. I just bought the Wacom Intuos Pro Medium and am having a little issue you might be able to help me sort out. It might even be helpful to others as well. When I am using Illustrator and the pen tool, I somehow end up with anchors being placed before I even get the pen to touch the surface of the tablet. What setting would I need to adjust in order to prevent this characteristic from happening?
