There are a number of ways to do this, but here’s a simple way.

Find a clipart type heart in the shape you like. Look for something about the size of the image you want to produce or insert a clipart image in a Word document and scale.

Copy this image from Word or open the picture format file in Photoshop, select and copy (eg using magic wand tool) – depending on your choice of picture.

Paste it in your Photoshop photo document. Place in the position where you want it so that the photo is positioned over the heart shape. It should paste on a layer of its own.

Now select the heart shape (magic wand) again, click on the layer containing your photo, go to menu Select>Inverse and then to menu Edit>Clear.

Your photo will now be in the shape of the heart. Delete or hide the layer that contains the heart shape and save your file (remember to use Save As to keep the original photo intact).

In Photoshop, how can I give a picture jagged edges, like brush strokes? I don’t want to do this by hand.

I also don’t want the whole picture to look like brush strokes. In Corel, it was an easy setting called a creative frame. Don’t know how to do it in Photoshop, though (I have version CS2)
