    Hi, Is there a way I can make my images look like the edges are burned, like paper edges that are burned and fuzzy and slightly uneven, and that the darkness bleeds a little into the photo...I am trying to make them look very old and seared.......I have Photoshop 7 and Photoshop Imaging...any suggestions appreciated

    I have never done this, but my Photoshop (5.5) Help says this about edge effects:

    When you apply an effect to only a selected part of an image, you can use various techniques to blend the effect into the original image.
    For a distinct edge, apply the filter effect as is, to contrast it with the rest of the image. For a soft edge, feather the edge and then apply a filter.

    I'm not too sure what it means, but maybe it's a start. ---911

    I tried this, but it does not look vey good. Maybe you may have to scan a burn paper, then use it on top of your picture, cut the part that you don't need, and it may work.
    Good luck

    Hi again

    Just gave it a quick try...With a little practice seems like the tutorial on that link would work quite well...
