How to apply this to your images

We have even included the Photoshop File, so you can add the exact border from this episode. Just click and drag it over your photo and you are done.

Now it is time to make your image look old in photoshop. I recommend using a photo that has a bit more of a classic feel to it, so the effect doesn’t look out of place. If you choose an image that is really busy, and has a lot of lights flashing everywhere, it may look odd. Boobs are always a plus, as long as they are tastefully incorporated. Don’t stick this effect on porn and expect to hang it in the Louvre.

Challenge

Apply this sort of effect to your images!
