    Playing around with some stuff in photoshop (the border mainly) of our house guest for the weekend, Sally.

    No border option.

    I usualy use the increase canvas size method but this was something else.

    New layer - marque tool (rectangle) for the white line (right click -> stroke - then say 7px wide white) then select inverse -> new adjustment layer/levels.

    Super kitty-pic. Very cute.

    To be hypercritical, you've nailed the focus on the eye on the left but it's slightly out on the eye on the right due to the angle. Worth an extra f-stop to increase the DOF a tad next time :smashin:.

    Love the selective colouring though - not usually my bag but works superbly here.

    Yeah DoF should be a bit deeper to get both eyes and the nose sharp, have some half a stop slower but not as cute a pic.

    Not usualy a fan of selective colouring so my use is limited also, but as said seems to work here.

    lol just remembered I didnt hit it with any sharpening..
