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:

Technicolor 3 Color Script

Download script.

This script simulates the 3 Color Technicolor effect.
Copy it into the scripts folder from GIMP, you will find it then under Colors -> Technicolor 3 Color.
