Learn How To Mat. Matting Gives Photos Teh Snappiness!

There’s no question about it, a mat and frame make your photos look hot.

You could have the best eye in the world, the nicest camera, have caught the moment, and juiced it perfectly in Photoshop. But a floppy old print is still lame. Sure, there are lots of other ways to show off those snaps, but sometimes you want a traditional look.

It’s easy to find nice ready-made frames on the cheap. Trouble is, getting your photos matted can be pricey.

Matting photos yourself, however, is easy, fun, and cheap! Check out the super simple tutorial Sarah Neuburger wrote on her method. You’ll be matting in no time flat.
