3.
Choose the Rectangular Marquee tool (M or Shift-M).

4.
Enter 8 in the Feather field on the Rectangular Marquee tool options bar.

5.
Drag a selection marquee across approximately three-quarters of the image (not including the border area).

6.
Choose Select > Inverse (Ctrl-Shift-I/Cmd-Shift-I). The active selection will now include the added canvas area and part of the image .



7.
Apply Filter > Distort > Ripple , Ocean Ripple, Twirl, or Brush Strokes > Spatter, or a combination thereof. Move the preview in the filter dialog box to bring the edge of the image into the preview window.
