My latest favorite way to edit my photos with an eroded border look. This is the texture I had posted about yesterday transformed to a square.
To make this work for this technique I needed to invert it (Command/Control I in Photoshop) to make the center black and the edges white.
My photo is placed on top of my 'textured' layer and the blend mode is changed to screen.
But if you want to go for an even different look how about using the colored version instead of black and white? My original was very orange colored and I need the darkness at the center so I inverted it and ended up with this.
If I replaced the black and white with it the result is very different. I could have done this on my iPad too and just for grins, I think I will and post it to Instagram. I think it's begging for text or other goodies too.
