Trimming a Photo into a Custom Shape
Who says photographs have to be square or rectangular? The sky’s the limit as far as the Photoshop Elements Cookie Cutter tool is concerned, so you can make the shape of the photo part of the message it communicates. Try them all!
- With an image open in the Editor’s Full Edit mode, choose the Cookie Cutter tool from the toolbox.
- Click to open the Shape pop-up menu, and then select a shape.
- Click and drag in the document window to create the shape.
Click the Commit button to hide the parts of the image outside the shape.
