It’s messing about with Photoshop Sunday

With no decent F1 to watch (it’s always indecent when Ferrari finish above McLaren) I remembered that I always wanted to experiment with that scattered Polaroid effect you sometimes see in billboards – so I sat down and taught myself how to do it. I’m not quiet there yet, but it’s getting there.

It took about 2 hours to get into a swing of wand tool > mask >selection > new layer by copy > filter > repeat. Eventually I’ll spread more virtual Polaroid around the place and the finished thing will be more like the one with the black frame than it will the notice-board cliché – which is OK, for now.
