    I found a good tutorial for a wallpaper that helped me solve that problem.
    I cant find the tutorial, but I think it goes something like this:

    you duplicate the image onto a new layer above it.

    apply a few pixels gaussian blur

    set it to overlay.

    I'm not sure, but I think theres one more step where you select the pixels of the layer and set them to be a border (its in the options for the selection) of a few pixels. then select everything else and delete them, so the entire image isnt overlayed, only the border.

    I'll get back to you with more details. (havent needed this for a long time)

    I try that , and it just kinda selects a wee-tiny bit and it would take forever.

    Magicwand is not the best... selecting the area and then erasing it is more precise as long as it's not too complicated.
