    Technique: From your original image use rectangular marquee to select a portion of the image. Use transform selection (not free transform) to rotate the selection. Then make a new layer of just the selected part. Use stroke from add layer style to place the border around the new layer. You'll have to adjust color, square off the edges, add a drop shawdow. Then adjust the background layer. In this photo I increased the level to make it bright, but you can decrease it, blur it, make it b&w, etc.

    MDowdey: I agree, advertising is a great use for this technique.

    I think this as pretty cool!

    However, I would like it better if the rest of the rec. marquee portion had as much color as the marquee...)did that make sense? :?

    Nice idea !
