Basic Border Tut.


ok superkick....here you go. a very easy tut to follow to make a basic border for your sigs.


ok. first open your image into photoshop. once you have it loaded create a new layer on top of it. here's a pic of the botton you press to do this, and what your layers should look like once you have a new one created.

Image


once you have your new layer, click onto your "selection" tool here's a pic.


Image



once your tool is selected, create a large rectangle in the center of your image. here's what it should look like. check out the dotted lines to know the size of your rectangle.


Image


once this is done go to the select menu and click to inverse your selection. here's what you are looking for.



Image


once you have inverted the selection it will look like this on your image. notice now there are two rows of dotted lines running around your image.



Image



now that you have inversed your selected area click onto the bucket tool. here's what it looks like.


Image


once you have your bucket tool selected hold the bucket over the inversed area and click down. this will fill the area with whatever color paint you have chosen. and look like this.



Image



now that your area is painted you can deselect it. here's the menu you are lookig for.


Image


now you have a border. but it looks pretty plain. so now you can go about adding a bevel or some glow to it. etc. here's the menu to do this.


Image


once you open this menu up a screen will pop up. it is in this screen that you can play around with textures. the look of your bevel, your outer or inner glows, whatever you want. here's what the menu looks like.


Image



once you play around with whatever floats your boat you can come out with a border like this one.



Image



now granted this is just if you want a simple border. there are ways to get very cool, difficult looking but very simple to do borders. but that's a different tut. lol. i think this one is big enough.
