    Ahhh........yes Patryk. Thanks.

    Something like this, i like the imperfect black border.

    I tried doing it myself in PS, but it looks kinda un-natural.

    Is this a scanned silver print?

    Well the shot was a film scan, but the border was added through PS. I used the Soft Pastel Large under the Dry Media Brushes from the brush picker. The brush is a very long cylindrical shape, so size it accordingly and make sure that the vertical ends are the ones applying the effect on the image. The texture of the brush makes quite a convincing old b/w print border.
