In this new Pixelmator Tutorial episode I’m going to show you an easy way to create an image where some of the edges are slightly lifted from the background.
We start off with a new document. Choose any size you want but take into account the size and orientation of the image you want to import for this effect. For this example I will use 800×600 pixels.
Make sure the background is white. Be default it will be white but if you have changed this in the preferences you should manually fill the background layer with white.
Now on to importing the image we want to use.
