    Default Line Border Tut

    Today, I'm going to show any graphics users that use photoshop how to make a simple border.

    Step One

    Create a new layer and make sure that it is above your creation in your layer list. Make sure you have that layer highlighted and then go to:

    Edit ==> Fill ==> Choose Black or White ==> Okay


    Step Two

    Now your creation should be covered by the color you chose. Now what you need to do is either double click on the fill layer, or if you prefer, click on the small "fx" on the lower section of the layer tab and click "Blending Options." On this pop-up, you should see two bars, an "Opacity" bar and a "Fill Opacity" bar. Move the "Fill Opacity" to 0%.


    Step Three

    And now you should be able to see your creation yet again, although for me, it's a simple blue, brush background without renders or anything.

    Now, all you have to do is, while still on your fill layer, click the "fx" button again and then click "Stroke."

    The pop-up will show up and you will make sure that the stroke is in the inside position, or you won't be able to see it. Additionally, feel free to lower or raise the pixel width to your creation preference, as well as the color, fill type, or opacity.


    And congratulations! You should have a simple border that looks something like this:


    Pro Tip:

    Here's something you can do for fun! Make multiple stroke layers with different thickness of borders around your creation!

    If you lower the opacity of the bottom, thicker ones, while having the smaller, thinner ones above it, you can have a border that looks like this:

    Most people know how to do this, however a tut for future reference for newer artists won't hurt. Very nice, thanked.
