I am officially addicted to making vintage frames and here is my newest version, CoffeeShop Frames 13. This frame is perfect for posting on the web or using on cards or small storyboards. Like CoffeeShop Frames 12, this is a layered psd file
that you open in PSE or Photoshop. It has a extra texture layer that instantly ages your image, no action/editing needed!
For full instructions on how to use this frame, please read the CoffeeShop Frames 12 post. I used a beautiful paper texture from Playingwithbrushes from Flickr.
You can also easily make a vintage B&W (see image below). Add and group a Black to White Gradient Map Adjustment layer (or a Black and White adjustment layer) above the image to turn it B&W. Then make a copy (Ctrl-J) of the Vintage Texture layer, group it with the rest, and put that in soft light blending mode to lighten the image. Almost instantly your photo looks like it has been in the attic for decades!
