Hey y'all,

Do any of you guys know of any plugins or anything for Photoshop to make interesting borders around your images? In particular I'm looking for something to help me make a realistic-looking border to where it looks like an image was printed full-frame in a darkroom, if that helps at all.

Thanks a bunch,

Sam

There are many such plugins. I use two big products:

AutoFx - PGE6 ( http://www.autofx.com/pge_6/pge_6.html )
PhotoFrame 3 ( http://www.ononesoftware.com/detail.php?prodLine_id=10 )

These both have millions of features as you can see from the links. I've been using both of them for many years.

You can see some of them in use in my G1 portfolio.

As to making an image look like its printed full frame in a darkroom, I'm not sure what border that would be since if its printed full frame, there would be no border. But if you're talking about having it look like a contact print where you would see the negative edges, then that is doable in both of the above.

Cheers,
rfs

Check out this link:
http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchang...Exchange&avm=1
It's the Adobe Exchange site. Here you can find a lot of free actions, plug-ins, etc. that people create and share for most all Adobe products. You have to register, but it's free.

Simple is often best...
select black as your background colour and increase the canvas size by 2 pixels in both height and width... Select white as the background colour and increase the canvas size to suit...
