I have been working on trying to make my images look like old Polaroid pictures, the ones with the washed out look.  For the past week I have been trying to replicate that tactile Polaroid as well.  I know it is as easy as going to Image > Canvas Size and making a border, but I want it to look like a tactile Polaroid.  I will eventually have every detail down, even to the glue residue on the outside edges.  For now, you will get a preview of the effects and another look at High Pass Texturing.  I sited my Actions Tutorial in the video also, in case you haven’t seen it yet there is your link.

Have a great and safe HDR’ing weekend everyone!

I threw a border on the final image, you can grab that tutorial here.
