A lot of you keep asking me how I'm doing this nice retro-grungy-polaroid-like borders and frames around my images. So, here are some explanations.
First, I don't use any plugin: I consider that borders, like pictures, should be designed by yourself using your own tools - they're part of your own creation. Mine are painted with Photoshop brushes made of pictures of old walls, skotch tape, etc... It's pretty easy to create your own. Just carry a camera with you and keep looking around at the walls. You'll notice interesting patterns, for instance, in broken windows. Shoot them, then convert them to B&W, ensuring that the background is white and the "grunge brush" element is black. Define a brush. And paint with it !
I'm (kindly ) providing you two sets of brushes ( www.deviantart.com/deviation/1… www.deviantart.com/deviation/1… )... if you would like to use mine. They're very large, as I'm currently dealing with 2000x3000 pixels pictures. I don't even ask you to credit me, you can freely use them in your own creations. I would appreciate a link to see what you've done, but, once again, feel free of any constraint. If you find them useful, I would like to read your comment on them
