Re: How to get vintage "deckle edge" border?

Here are 4 more patterns.

They are in xcf format. Either export as a gbr; or copy the pattern and use as a clipboard brush. Paths are included so that they can better scaled if required.

Set the brush spacing to 100%. For straight line first Click; then Shift-Ctrl-Click.

Wallace, I am missing something. How did you get the torn edging on the outside of the border, not the inside. Can you make it on the inside and outside of the border?
Do you mean like this Pat625?

Yes, Wallace. the "torn" edge appears on the outside of the border as on post #2, and on Post#12.

No not an idiot.
You must have been seeing something, that others were not.
I'm wondering what that was.

@Wallace I've been trying your method, and on my GIMP (2.10.8) it seems to give the deckle edge to only two adjacent sides (top and left). The right and bottom sides seem to be untouched. And it seems more like pieces bitten out (narrow and deep, rather than shallow and undulating). I'm not sure whether I'm doing something wrong, or once again, there's a difference between GIMP versions.

If you look at your images just right, they appear that the white is a frame OVER the cream color, and that it's the white that was deckled.

I've used portable Gimp 2.10.10 and an installed Gimp 2.8.18 and can not recreate the kid of issue you're having.
Not sure why your selection is only being distorted on 2 sides.
The distortion is more of a torn look than a symmetrical one.

@@rich2005 I like where you're going with this. I'm piggy-backing off your idea and using an image I found online of an actual vintage photo with a deckle edge (someone wrote what appears to be a master's thesis on the history and usage of the deckle edge in photography). I'm working on my own deckle brush, and I'll post it as soon as it's finished.
