Hello,

 

I am photographing some framed paintings & prints in antique frames. I would like to be able to paste in images of other paintings & prints into the frame in this image so that I don’t have to remove the print & reframe and set up the whole shot again for each one.

 

I would like it to be entirely seamless and to look like the print/painting was photographed in the actual frame, rather than just pasted in.

 

Is this possible? I have access to CS6 photoshop.

 

I’d really appreciate advice on the steps required to achieve this.

 

Many thanks, Paul

Yes, I'd think so. I also have CS6. If I understand correctly, you can just drag each painting onto the frame on a layer below it. Can you post a screenshot of the frame?

You can add a mask to the frame so that it's easier to drop your painting into it. This article should explain the process. Use masks to hide layers in Photoshop (adobe.com)

I case you aren't familiar with masking, here is another way you can do it (I've added a slight drop shadow to the frame, which adds realistic dimension):
