CoffeeShop Vintage Frames 13!

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!

  2. You are always so inspiring! I love your frames and I finally remembered to start using mine from a collection of photograhic images a friend left me when she died. You can see what you inspired me to do today with a project I've been working on...
    Thanks again and looking forward to learning about your wordpress project!

  3. Oh Rita, this may be my favorite frame! Now to get some cool people shots!

  4. I am thrilled !!! that you are
    addicted to vintage frames.

    for a long time in my digital
    Yours are great!

  5. Your frames are GREAT! I used the last 2 in a project I'm making for a friend to help remember her father who just passed away from cancer. They add SO MUCH to the photos! Thanks for all of your work on this (and keep them coming!). Hope your family is feeling better!

  7. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies, under the Page 3 post on Jul. 22, 2011. Thanks again.

  8. Rita this is one awesome frame! Thank you for your kind, giving heart! I have a question for you, would this be good enough for printing or is it mainly for web use? If I increase the resolution on PS would that render a good print then? Thank you!
