You don't need Color Efex Pro to do this. Take your image, and if you have space that you can give up don't crop the image. Now with the image open Select the Marque tool, and pick any of the methods, but for a rectangular frame, pick the rectangular marque. Make sure you have the minus version selected and now draw your frame. The area outside the frame is now selected and you can use ANY tool in CNX2 to work this region, so you can blur it, colorize it, apply gradients, etc to your hearts content i.e. using any tool in CNX2.

As far as signature is concerned, if you are careful you can create a colorize brush and write the signature right on the image. Since it will be an edit step you can easily remove it if you are not happy with the results.

Now for short soapbox message.

With a bit of imagination it is possible to create many of the effects you find in tools like Color effects pro. As you experiment and you find a series of edit steps that work for you, you can save these edit steps to be recalled at any time to add the same effect to another image. CNX2 is way more powerful than most people realize.
