    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    use the rectangle marquee tool to make a selection (assuming you are working with a flat file). then duplicate that layer, add a stroke (to the inside to keep the corners sharp) then add a drop shadow. now with the original background layer, double click it to make an editable layer and drop the opacity down to 20-30%. OPTIONAL: add a new layer and move it to the back and fill with white.

    hope that helps....
