    Hey Guys,

    I'm interested in making my "show-off" pics look a little more stylish...:wink:

    1.) Does anyone have a good Online-Tutorial for creating those frames/borders
    in PhotoShop? Would be nice to see different styles and options...

    2.) General question: Do you save your created frames/borders as a "fixed"
    one, so you just have to put the new pic in and you don't have to create
    the frame/border all over again all the time ?
    (vertical and horizontal frame/border, depending on how you shot the pic)

    Thanks
    Patrick

    If you do a google on "photoshop border" or the like, you will get about a million tutorials.

    I have a psd where I just have layers of borders that I can cut and paste into a new psd and resize accordingly. Good way to keep em organized.

    For borders this is what you do. You open your image in photoshop.
    You then go to canvas size: Set to pixels which is easiest. This will show the image size, the increase both lenght and width by about 200 or 400 pixels, whichever you prefer and then enter. Thats it. You can also choose the colour. If you want two borders, like a black line around the image choose a pixel amount to increase by about 20 pixels in width, then do it again and change colours and increase again by 400 pixels and that will give two borders.

    Hope this helps.
