Neg Style Keyline Borders
Does anyone have an action for putting a keyline border onto a print. I am not talking about fiddling about with canvas size, background colour etc. rather copying the look one gets from an oversized negative mask in the enlarger. I assume this would involve making a print with such a border in the darkroom, scanning said print and then somehow removing the image, leaving just that attractive uneven border. From there I assume some sort of cleverness with layers is required to use it as a layer that can be dropped onto other images as desired.
Any hints, tips, workflows, actions you have would be much appreciated. I am sure I could work it out but frankly life is too short and there seems little sense reinventing the wheel etc!
Thanks in anticipation,
