Hi, my name is Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media, and today I'm gonna show you how to mat a vignetted photo. First, what you're going to want to do is start off with your photo and a piece of paper to trace out the shape of your mat. You will cut out the shape and then trace that shape onto your mat. From here you will cut out the shape inside of your mat with a knife or a box cutter leaving the outside of the mat untouched. Finally tape your photo to the back side of the mat and you will have your photo matted to perfection. From here you can throw the photo and the mat inside of a frame and simply leave it how it is. I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media and that is how you mat a vignetted photo. Take your best shot.
