Interesting photo frame
First open a picture on which you want to work. Then copy that layer (CTRL + J on keyboard) and name it. We'll name it back_copy.
Then you pick rectangular marquee tool (M) and draw a rectangular over a place you want to frame.
After that once again press CTRL + J (remember, this will copy selected area to another layer) and call that layer frame.
Now, click the back_copy layer and go to the filter menu. Choose FILTER - BLUR - RADIAL BLUR.
Then fix the center of window on the center of your frame. Pick value of 15 and BEST and then click OK (you can experiment with this values as you wish).
Now click frame layer and from layer adjustment option list choose HUE SATURATION.
Experiment with these values and don't be worry if this is influencing whole area. We'll fix this in next step. When you are satisfied with the look of frame you than go to the LAYER - CREATE CLIPPING MASK (ALT + CTRL + G). Layers should look something like this
Next, select frame layer, choose eraser tool (E), find brush that you think it's suitable and erase around edges of frame in small strokes.
And a final step is to go to the add a layer style, select STROKE, choose white color, inner stroke and that's it.

May I publish your tutorial(s) on my website?
NO - DEFINITELY MAY NOT! I don't mind, of course, any form of back link to Digital Photo News tutorials section, but taking any one of the tutorials whole and supplanting it on your website is theft. If you really like the tutorials and want to advertise them, why not just hyperlink directly to their URL?
Is it possible to submit some of my own tutorials?
Yes! I love to add new and original tutorials to ever-growing database! If you would like to submit a tutorial, fill in the contact form with as much detail as you can manage and we'll get back to you with details. There's no need to stick to a specific format when submitting, as we will do all the boring work for you if needed... and fully credit you as the author on your tutorial pages if your submission is accepted.
Can I request a tutorial?
Of course you can! I make no guarantees i'll be able to get around to your specific tutorial in any given timeframe, but I listen to audience, and if there is demand out there for a guide to a specific technique/effect, I'll be only too glad to offer my assistance. Just ask via the contact form.
