Hi guys, i have seen ppl using postage-stamp-edges as the borders for their pictures. Not too sure if you guys understand what i am saying. But hope if anyone knows, please guide me. Thank you.:bigeyes:

this was common in the 1950s.
photo studios/labs cut their black and white pics with special cutters
you can buy this from a USA company now.
it has no function and is decorative

Take a photo of a real stamp, best using a good and flat plane macro lens. Then stick your photo ever the original stamp. To change the dimesion, use clone tool to make more perforations. A real postage stamp will give teh paper fibre rough edge that is very hard to achieve using paint-brush.

I have one published work whereby I made artificial stamps using the method I described above.
