Give your photographs a nice retro look with our brand new set of Polaroid frames brushes. These Polaroid frames, which come as a brush bundle, can instantly turn your photographs into vintage creations by making them look like they were taken in  the 1960s and 1970s.

In case you don’t know, Polaroid is an American brand that popularized instant camera and film in the 1960s. The images produced by these cameras have distinct look, most notable is the white border in the images. You can further enhance the vintage feel of your photos by adding filters such as those you find in Instagram app.


This set includes more than 20 brushes featuring various Polaroid frames that are grungy and aged. Each brush has width of around 2500 pixels, which are high-res enough even for those designs you intend to print later on. The download link below include the Photoshop (.ABR) file you can extract and install in Photoshop CS and above. The image preview below shows all the brushes in this set and a sample image to show you how the frames would look like when applied to your own photographs.


You may change the opacity and colors using the brush menu in Photoshop. The brushes have vintage and dirty texture for a more realistic effect. To use, simply stamp them on your canvass. You may also use other colors or apply styles and patterns to your brush to make them look more interesting. You may also adjust the opacity and the blending modes in Photoshop to get even more interesting effects.
