Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a painted edge effect with the Brush tool, part of Photoshop: Creative Effects (2011).
Many photographers are surprised to learn just how many interesting options exist …for the brush tool. In this lesson, we're going to explore a …method for adding a creative edge to a photo, utilizing some of the more …dramatic options for the brush tool. I'm going to start by adding a new layer …and filling that layer with white, because ultimately I'll be adding a white …border around the edge of my image. So, I'll click on the create new layer …button, the blank sheet of paper icon at the bottom of the Layers panel. …I can rename this layer by double clicking the title and typing a new name.…
We'll call this edge effect for example. And then I can fill this layer with white …by choosing Edit > Fill and choosing white from the Use popup and setting the …blending to normal and 100%. I'll go ahead and click OK and as you can …see, I now have a white layer. But I only want this white layer to be …visible around the edge and I'm going to determine where specifically it will be available. …
