If you could post some cool border effects (or make a tutorial on those), that would be cool, since I'm not very inventive when it comes to those.

grrrr.... no point in making a tut for something so easy.\

ok i'll talk you through it.


-grab the rectangular marquee tool (M)

-go up to the bar where it says style, and change it to fixed size (the width and height boxes should open up

-here's where you have to do it yourself. type in the dimensions of your graphic, BUT MAKE SURE YOU PUT "px" NEXT TO THE #'s

-depending on how thick or thin you want the border to be, subtract whatever EVEN # you want from the dimensions (ex: I almost always just subtract 2 from the height and width for a very thin border that is less noticeable but still present.)

-you can play around with it a bit by subtracting different amounts from each side. (for instance: subtract 6 from width and 2 from height. that gives you a thicker border on the sides.)

-after you subtract what you want, click the marquee on a new layer on top of the whole graphic

-then switch to the move tool (V)

-you have to center the dotted selection using the arrows

-after it is centered on the image, invert the selection by hitting CRTL+SHIFT+I, or by going into select>inverse

-now you can fill it with a color that you want by going to edit>fill, or by merely clicking alt+delete for your current color, or ctrl+delete for your second color

-you can then proceede by adding an overlay to the border, which looks good with most colors, leave it like it is, or use any other effects you might like.

That's basically it... I don't know if you have an apple or just windows, but those commands are for windows.

Just thought of something else too.

You can also use any shapes in the shape tool and make them into borders.

-pick your shape

-stretch the shape to the size you want and try and make it as even and centered as you can

-then hit ctrl+enter to make it into a selection

-from here, just go through the same process as you would above (invert selection, fill, etc.)


The reason I put this was in case you needed to know how to use any custom shapes as borders.

Hope I helped!

Ok... I was more focused on how to get the effects--like that color-dodge-looking effect?

Do you just fill with white/black and use color dodge?

Or do you copy the outside 1-5 px of the picture and then use that on vivid light/overlay or something? I'm not sure... I'll find a picture to reference to...

I recently figured out a much easier way that is a lot shorter to type out....

-Make a new layer and select it all (ctrl+a)

-go to edit>stroke

-make sure the stroke is on the inside

You can play around with it to get the size/color/layer style/opacity you like.

This will not work, however, with creating different sized borders (like height: -2px width: -6px.)

Or make a new layer, fill all with any color, change fill opacity to 0, and then inner stroke white with blend mode color dodge or whatever.
