Recreate old-fashioned border?

Hi.

Does anyone know how to not only recreate the border seen on the left in this old photo, but larger and with more depth? I've researched (apparently not enough) and cannot seem to find an answer. Your assistance as always is most appreciative.

I deleted my original answer because it had flaws in it. The more I tried to edit it - the worse it got. So, if you are trying my technique - sorry

JAT, you would be better off to copy the border.
Here's a 6x4 300 dpi one I use.
To use is portrait just rotate it.
You can lighten, or change the color of the border to whatever you want.
Click in the blue space and paste in any photo you wish.
Scale (enlarge or reduce) the photo to fit.
Save the original as a template for future use.

Can't test right now, but I think this might work

What came to mind for me was
  • Pick a round brush at about the size of one scallop of the serrated edge
  • Go into brush dynamics and set a spacing of 85-90%
  • Put the cursor on the corner of photo, half way off each edge
  • Hold down the shift key to constrain to a straight line and draw the brush along one edge of the photo
  • Repeat for the other four edges

Re: Recreate Old-Fashioned Border?

Hi Ladybug,

Thanks for your assistance. I don't believe this will work for me as I have PSE10 and the features mentioned are not available unless they're "lurking" somwhere which is always in my case a strong possibility. I did try nevertheless.

If you are using PSE 10 go to content and select frames and go down to near the end of the frames and the one you want to use is there and works great.

  1. Open picture file
  2. Duplicate background layer
  3. Access cookie cutter tool, and check "all elements shapes". Drill down to crop shape #23. Drag this out and crop
  4. Place a blank layer between the background and background copy layers and fill with a contrasting color (I used yellow for demonstration).
