Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating deckled edges and sepia tone, part of Photoshop for Designers: Textures (2011).
When I first started using Photoshop about 20 years ago now the emphasis seemed…to be that we would take a damaged image some sort of historic photo and then…using the retouching tools would make it look shiny new.…Well, things have come full circle, because now we would have lots of shiny new…images that we can take with our digital cameras that don't have any grain that…don't have any imperfections and apply various techniques to them to make them…look aged and imperfect.…
And that's what we are going to do here.…Here is our starting point and the first thing that we want to do is increase…our canvas size so that we can add the background field of color and the…border for the photograph so that the canvas will be added as transparency…rather than colored pixels.…I am going to unlock the background layer just by double-clicking on it and…while I am here I might as well name it as well.…So now I am going to come to the Image menu and choose Canvas Size and I have my…unit of measurement in pixels.…
