View Full Version : help with metal border
10-06-2005, 11:53 AM
I am trying to make a corkboard with a metal border around it and I have tried everything I can think but nothing is working right lol. I got the idea from a site the exact border on the site is what I am trying to do http://www.marion-raven.com. Can anyone check it out and see if they know of a tutorial that can explain it to me lol. I want the little corner things to where it looks like they put the border together. Thanks!! :D

That is going to need some beveling, shadowing, dodging, and burning. I would probably do them all in separate pieces rather than one large border.

I created one for you and posted instruction check out my gallery.
Mitered corners are easy once you see how to cut them with the Polygonal Lasso tool (or point-to-point selection tool in PSP)
I show this technique in my DSU 361 class, Adv Element Creation in PSE. Each side is its own layer
Here's a PS tutorial to see how to cut the shapes. I also like the gradient used for depth:
