Finally had some time to figure out how to do this using Texture in Topaz Studio and the PNG structure TS wanted. No, not the highly cranked Clarity setting but rather the border treatment.
Once I gather my notes, I’ll post something w/ more details on the process if interest. The trick was getting the date to work. I stretches justa touch in this example, but easily corrected. This was made from a scan of a square print.
I’ll put this up as a public preset later on. I’ve a couple more from the '30’s to make yet & thinking of a couple more tweeks.
Oh, and this is my very frist kitty kat, Boris.
