an edge like an old photograph ( sort of a ragged white edge )around the

find the right one. I have Paint Shop Pro 7, Adobe's Photoshop, but they
don't have the editing options needed to make the picture like I want them
Anyone knows an image editor that will do the things I described above ?
I know it is possible, I've seen it before on some websites..

Learn how to use layers well in Gimp or Photoshop.
Gimp is as advanced as Photoshop, but more specialized for web
graphics and free. Runs a bit slow on winboxes compared to linux, and
you have to save often on winblows. But if anything will do the
job, it will. Be sure to download one of the big Gimp books, too.
The learning curve is about as steep as photoshop, so brace
for a busy day. Go to gimp.org.
