PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where it allows people to anonymously mail in homemade postcards with their secrets on them. There are no restrictions on the secrets, except they must be true and have never been told before.
Frank Warren, the creator of the PostSecret website, then updates the site every Sunday with new secrets he has received in the mail.

Step 1: Getting Started
Choose two contrasting pictures from your files. It does not matter the order in which you work with them.
Open Photoshop. Go to File>New. Under Document size, change the Width to 15.3cm, and the height 10.1cm. Then change the Resolution to 180 pixels/inch. This is the correct size for an average postcard.
Choose your first picture you would like to work with and open it. Once you have it open, go to Image > Image size. Under Document size, change the Width to 15.3cm, and the height 10.1cm. Then change the Resolution to 180 pixels/inch.
The picture is now the same size as your canvas.
