    Shucks. I'm embarrassed someone will pull me up for knowing how to do it properly. But...

    I was inspired by Horrgakx's how-to-do cutouts session into thinking that with the right cutout you could make a Flickr image that appeared to be jumping out the photo. Pictures of me doing it didn't seem to work (!) but then I saw this toy and thought that would be ideal.

    The 'ghost' versions bouncing up are layered images set to 50 per cent opaqueness. The cut out at the top was much harder than it should be and hopefully someone can tell me how to do it easier in Elements. But basically, I put a black frame on the picture, drew a black line across the top (excluding the head of course) and then painted the top section white to blend in with the Flick website page. Does that make sense?

    I couldn't see in Elements how to draw an empty box to act as the frame.
