Ok Lets Begin :

Start by opening a new 800 X 650 canvas (transparent) Don't worry we will crop it later :-)

Now open Frame 5, copy & paste it as a new element onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 50%. Using your move tool position your frame in the center of your canvas.

Now open your tube of choice - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas , now re-size it to 75% (this size will depend on the tube you are using so you might need to adjust your re-size setting to fit your tube) Now using your move tool position your tube so that the part you want inside the frame is centered in the frame. Then go to Selections and click Invert, then on your keyboard press your Delete key 1 time.
Then go to Selections & click Select None.
