Really nice Jill. Seems like the zoo could use your zoo series as postcards, or as large prints. #268715

Hi Jill,
This is a great shot. I'm wondering if you could tell me how you did the edges? Is it a plug-in or did you create it by hand? If it is a plug-in, would you mind telling which one? I really miss the edges I used to create in my darkroom!

Jill Battaglia June 03, 2004

Thanks Kerry, For these edges I digitally removed the edges from a real Polaroid transfer that I had done and scanned. Then I added it to the tiger shot. (photoshop 7) Pretty simple really! I'm glad you like it! :-) #574582
