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.

Blake Rudis
f.64 Academy and f.64 Elite are the brainchildren of Blake Rudis. While he is a landscape photographer he is most passionate about post-processing images in Photoshop and mentoring others.

For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
