Good idea. But I doubt I'd say what effect I use to anyone except Poiree. As if somebody likes it though.

Re: Graphics questions, tips & tutorials

Poiree, i know this is a stupid question, but how do you resize pics? I use another method than you, cause it doesnt involve the Shift button.

Re: Graphics questions, tips & tutorials

Does anybody use GIMP 2 instead of Adobe Photoshop?

It's far less glamorous than Photoshop But if anybody else uses it I'd like to get some help with some things

I don´t know if you mean a border with one colour on the outside and another colour inside it or if you mean a border that gradually changes from one colour to another but i can tell you a way to do both.

First i should say that i use Photoshop 7 so if you have another version things might be slightly different, and if you use another program i can´t help you at all.

Here´s a way to do a border with one colour inside the other:
1. Make a new layer on top of all your other layers.
2. Press ctrl+a to select the whole canvas.
3. Right click somewhere on the canvas and choose "stroke", set the width and colour you want for the inside colour and set the location to "inside".
4. For the outside colour you repeat step 3, just choose another colour and a lower setting on the width.

To make a border that gradually changes from one colour to another you can do like this:
1. Do step 1-3 from above.
2. Hold down the ctrl-key and click on the layer with the border in the layers palette to select the border.
3. Select the gradient tool. Now you can either choose an existing gradient by clicking on the downpointing arrow next to the gradient icon or you can click on the icon to make a new gradient. To make a new gradient you just click one of the tabs under the gradient scale and choose a new colour. You can also add new tabs by clicking somewhere under the scale and you can also move the tabs by clicking on them and dragging them left and right. Click the ok button when you´re done.
4. Now you just click where you want the gradient to start. Hold down the button while you move the line that appears to where you want the gradient to end and release the button to apply the gradient.

Re: Graphics questions, tips & tutorials

It should work with all newer versions of Photoshop, there´s hardly any differences at all between Photoshop 7 and the newer versions. The buttons look a bit flashier and there´s some new filters but other than that there´s not much new.
