Polaroid Border Creation (based on image width) with Texture

I had previously created a script-fu to automatically emulate the results of shooting on expired Polaroid 600 instant film that included the undeveloped corners that results from old film stock with not enough developer/fix to completely cover the image area:

At the bottom of that script page I had alluded to a border script I created that more faithfully reproduced the textures embossed on actual polaroid 600 film.

Then I promptly forgot all about it.

Expired Polaroid 600 Print Emulation

So, I've been playing a bit more lately with emulating the effects produced when shooting on some 5 year old Polaroid 600 instant film. I took some shots the other day with it, and it produced these really neat areas of the film where no developer had reached, leaving this strange and interesting splotches of un-developed print behind.

I thought it might be fun to emulate in GIMP, and even better to reproduce the effects with a little script-fu (for practice).

So, here it is:

Antique Photo Border Script

This script simulates a yellowed and slightly jagged border like these of old photographies.
Copy it into the scripts folder from GIMP, you will find it then under Filters -> Decor -> Antique Photo Border.

vintage look

This script-fu for The Gimp is a attempt to simulate a vintage look.

This Script is based on the deviantart tutorial from CrazyMurdock1 (Vintage look in Gimp)
