Using Gimp to Create an Instagram Style Border

This is the second of three videos demonstrating how Gimp may be used to create an Instagram inspired vintage photo effect.

Creating a rounded border is a good way of adding to the Instagram effect. This video demonstrates how with a few clicks of the mouse and a little maths, we can create smooth rounded borders using built-in functions in Gimp. We also can choose between black and white borders which are equally easy to make.

In the first part we created an Instagram style vignette and the final part discusses the kind of effects Gimp has to create a cool looking vintage effect, but you may prefer to use filters of your own.
