Photo Editing Madness

I’ve been trying my hand at applying borders.  I’m not quite sure… what do you think… do they add to, or take away from the picture???  Do you think these borders give the pictures a visual interest, or am I just getting too carried away for my own good?  I can tend to get obsessive at times. 

I’d love to hear what you think!  I always love to hear from you!



























  1. I like both, borders and without. I think it all depends on the look you’re after. The border you’ve chosen here seems to compliment this photo selection very nicely

  3. I’m with Toni…I like both ways…and I think it adds to the picture….especailly the second and third picture. I don’t think I’d add it to all of them though… because in the long run…when I look at my pictures 10 years from now…will it look “so ’08″…what do we call this decade anyway? :o)

  4. What Nancy said is exactly what I was thinking. I like the effect, but it will definitely “date” the portraits. Because swirlies and flourishes and fancy brushes are so a trend right now. And like all trends, this too will pass…

    That said, I think these are pretty 🙂

  5. i like them, i think they will be timeless with certain pics and like the others had said, will date some. i actually bought my first set of borders but haven’t used them yet! e-mail me if you don’t mind and give me any good hints where to find fun borders and action sets!! or even christmas card templates… if you know of any! keep up the great work, i love coming to your page, i am always amazed with what i find!!!

  6. Oh, you guys are sooo right, I didn’t think of that! and that is so what photographs are about …the older they become, the more precious they should become (unlike trends & fads.)
    Thanks for the great observations guys, I absolutely love reading your notes!
