I can't decide if I should spring for these or buy a Lightroom preset and do it myself. I think I would be more apt to use a look like this if I had the overlays, since it would be easy to just grab one and keep scrapping... but on the other hand, for the same price I can get a preset that I can use an unlimited number of times. And would the photo look better if it was digitally altered rather than placing an overlay over a regular color photo? Though I saw one of the Garden Girls use one in a video here and really liked it.
Peas help me decide! (And if you know of a Lightroom preset that achieves a similar effect, it would be great if you could link me up!) TIA!

I don't know Lightroom.
I use Picassa, which is free, and it does that effect as well as a fair number of others.

I use both but I have older photos I printed out some time again and haven't scrapbooked yet and the overlays are really handy for those. I use them when I create my layers like a patterned paper.

If you have Lightroom there are some vignette presets built in that could give you the same look.

I looked at those today at my LSS and I decided that I could apply my own filters. They looked very dark to me, a very vintage look. (though I could only see the few in the front of the pack)

As it turns out I got all excited about using my 20% off coupon and forgot to take the overlays out of my cart before I checked out, so... I guess I will be playing with them after all! LOL
