Found this at Stockvault, should give good results I think.

Mine smudged with a texture added and a generous amount of sharpening.

Re: Close up

very nice pix, peter...thx for getting this one started

Mine (1): Akvis > Sketch & Impressionist plugins, Photoshop Texturizer effect. The "film edge effect" via applied using a Photoshop action I wrote/tweaked over the past couple days

Click my name above to send me an e-mail if you would like this .atn. Works under CS3 on images of any size and resolution.

#2: conversions to BW with film edge .atn applied to each pic. The resulting film-edged images were combined into a single image.
