The Photo corners - Slits is one of our most advanced and elegant products. 

By default the actions add a white photo frame to your photo. The default background color is gray, to emphasize the glows and shadows beyond the slits:

Some of you may want to use the actions over a white background (for specific design purposes or to save on ink costs while printing). Here's what you need to do in this case:

 

A. Modify the color of the white frame:

1. When the action finishes, go to the Layers panel and select the "Frame" layer:

2. Click the "fx" button at the bottom of the Layers panel; select the "Color Overlay" style and pick a color of your preference.

 

 

B. Change the color of the background to white:

Go to the Layers panel and click the eyeball icon to the left of "Color Overlay" to eliminate the gray color. Alternatively you can right-click the "background" layer and select "Clear Layer Style":

This is how the overall effect looks now. The slits look rather flat. We'll take care of it in the next steps:

C. Modify the appearance of the slits:

1. Go to the top of the Layers panel and turn on layer filtering:

6.  Select the "Glow/Shade - 1st slit" layer.
Press Ctrl-I (Mac: cmd-I) to invert the colors.
Change the blending mode to "Normal" and set the opacity to 20%:

select 1a



7. Select the "Glow/Shade - 2nd slit" layer.
Press Ctrl-I (Mac: cmd-I). 
Change the blending mode to "Normal" and set the opacity to 20%:
