    I've posted a few photos recently that have edges that I created using photoshop and inverse masking and filters. I don't like them. It there a nother way to create mostly unique edges around your photo. What I'm trying to create is the worn away edges like those from actual darkroom plates...errrr....like this....

    Have you tried using different art brushes or downloading some art brushes to give that kind of effect??

    start with your image
    make a selection around the inside of the image
    invert the selection
    press the quickmask button on the tools pallete or press "Q"
    use the filter/distort/ripple effect ( i find it to be easy)
    change the setting to about -500%
    Turn off the quick mask using the button or pressing "Q" again
    invert the selection again
    press control+shift+J to move selection to a new layer
    fill the background with white
    add a drop shadow effect to top it off..

    also you can try Photo Edges. That is a program that creates wonderful edges and frames and you can manipulate with them. but it is a huge program and takes a lot of space
