Many professional photographers and image editors use Photoshop to add special lighting and bordering effects to their images. Photoshop contains many tools for adding a creative frame around your photo, but the program does not present you with an automatic effect for softening the edges of your picture. However, if you use the "select" and "feather" tools in Photoshop, you can create an effect that will dissolve the borders and soften the edges of your image.
