Default Printing images

I am interested in printing digital images that result in two different types of prints - both not unlike what you would find in standard medium or large format contact sheets.
The first method would result in a black margin just outside the image - somwhat iregular in shape. Just like a medium format contact print.
The second method would result in an image that is borderless with a rough edge but with an almost "brushed" on effect onto the paper. A large brushed appearance - broad in width.
I have seen a lot of edge software but most produce a very fake appeareance. Any ideas?

I'm not sure about the status of what used to be Extensis PhotoFrame which was sold to Ononesoftware...ahh...found it...PhotoFrame3.1 is the current version...

I'm still using version 2.0--you might be able to get that version on ebay--and I've generally been pleased with the results because the software (version 2 at least) has a fair amount of flexibility in that you can have multiple frames, you can apply the results either to the image itself or to a separate layer--I'm using Photoshop by the way on a pc.

While the straightoutofthebox approach works pretty well, I do find that I always tweak the result just a tad...

Not sure that helps you at all...'-}}
