I thought I would put together a three-part tutorial taking a single image from start to finish. For part one, I am going to look at filling in gaps in your background and how to expand your frame beyond the original image. Photoshop’s Content-Aware tool is perfect for just those jobs.

In part two, I’ll look at blurring the background, adding a texture and some simple lighting effects to enhance the image further.
