Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Using a filter to add an artistic edge, part of Photoshop CS6 Selections and Layer Masking Workshop.
I sometimes like to add a bit of a creative edge to my images. …And I thought with this image, it might work especially well because to me this …image was all about texture and shape. And I thought that a bit of an artistic …edge rather than a straight edge along the outer portion of the image might work …out nicely. The basic approach that I take is to add …white around the edge of the image. But of course, add that white with a …shape that transitions from white to the image with some sort of interesting texture. …And in this case, I'm going to show you how to accomplish that using a filter.…
I'll start off by making a new Image layer. …So at the bottom of the Layers panel, I'll click on the Blank Sheet of paper …icon, the Add New Layer button that will add a new layer. …I'll double-click on the Layer name and I'll give it a new name, I'll just call …this Edge Effect, mostly just so I don't forget why that layer is there. …I'll then create a basic selection, I'm going to use the Rectangular Marque tool. …
