The tutorial was written for PSP 9 but can be done
in any other version as well.

The tutorial is Angela's own original idea.
Any resemblance to other tutorials is purely
coincidental.
No copyright violation is intended.

Let's begin! :)

Open an image of your choice.
Duplicate the image with Shift +D
and close the original.

1. Resize so that the longest side is 375 pixels.
Duplicate this image once more and minimize the copy
to the taskbar for later use.
Choose a color with the Color picker
from the image.
 

Now the fun begins! :)

2. Image - Add Borders: 5 pixels - Color not used in your Image.
Select the border with the Magic Wand
with these settings:

 

Fill the selection with your color.
 

3. Effects - 3D Effects - Inner Bevel:

 

Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow:
0 / 0 / 100 / 15.00 / black.

 

Selections - Select None.

4. Activate the minimized image and copy it with
Ctrl+ C.
Minimize the copy again.
Back to the frame canvas.

Image - Add Borders: 30 pixels - white.
Select the border with the Magic Wand
with the same settings as before.

5. Layers - New Raster Layer.
Rename this layer 'Frame 1' in the Layers palette.
Edit - Paste - Paste Into Selection.
Layer - Duplicate.
Keep selected.
Right-click on the background layer in the Layers palette
and promote the layer to raster layer.
It will now be named 'Raster 1'.
While Raster 1 is highlighted, click on the delete key on the keyboard.
(The white border around the image will be deleted on this layer only)

The Layers palette should look like this now:

 

6. Activate the 'Copy of Frame 1' - layer (highlight in blue = top layer)
We are going to do the effects now :-)
 

Effects - Distortion Effects - Wave:

 

Selections - Select None.

 

7. Select the black areas with the Magic Wand.
Selections - Modify - Expand by 2 pixels.
It should look like this now:

 

Press the delete key again on your keyboard.

 

8. Selections - Invert.
Adjust - Blur - Gaussian Blur - Radius 5.

Activate the layer 'Frame 1'.
Repeat the same Gaussian effect as before.
Keep selected.
Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow:
1 / 1 / 100 / 5.00 / color black.

 

Repeat the drop shadow with V & H on -1.
Selections - Select None.
 

9. Activate the 'Raster 1' layer in the Layers palette.
Layers - Arrange - Move to Top.
Layers - Merge - Merge All.
Repeat steps 2 and 3.
 

10. Image - Add Borders: 40 pixels - white.
Repeat steps 5 to 7.
Activate the 'Frame 1' layer.
Adjust - Blur - Gaussian Blur - Radius 5.

Back to the 'Copy of Frame 1' layer.
Apply the same drop shadow here as in step 8
as well as the  -1 shadow in step 8.
 

11. Activate the layer "Raster1".
Layers - Arrange - Move to Top.
Layers - Merge - Merge All.
 

12. Image - Add Borders: 5 pixels - white.
Select the border with the Magic Wand.

Repeat the same Inner bevel and drop shadow as in step 3.
