    • Choose a frame style. 
    • Adjust the size and color. 
    • Click Apply.

4.  Add an overlay
  • Click the overlay icon (butterfly)
  • Choose an overlay shape.
  • Adjust the color
  • Grab it with the cross hair arrows and move it where you want it.
  • Play with the fade.  It’s kind of cool to let the back ground show through a bit.
  • Don’t apply yet… go to text
