Check this out. How do I make this 3d border work? I found a procedure on the net and have been trying to fill in the blanks (big blanks). The numbers are the original lines. The > directions are mine, but I am getting lost. Can't make it work.

Quote:
1. Round the corners of the image
Select > rounded rectangle...

2. Alpha to selection
Layer > Transparency > Alpha to Selection

3. Shrink selection (10px in this case)
Select > Shrink

4. Selection to path
Select > To Path

5. Alpha to selection
Layer > Transparency > Alpha to Selection

6. Subtract path from selection
Layer > Transparency > Subtract from Selection

7. New transparent layer

8. Fill selection on transparent layer with shaped (dimpled) blend white>black

You could also bump map the original image with the transparent layer.
I like simple directions. Not general guidelines. Your help is very much appreciated. I have a friend waiting on a Sig I'm doing, but I need to master this border to make the Sig look right.

Thanks for your assistance.
Not sure what they are trying to do. This is the way I would do it.


Quote:
The first three steps cut the rounded corners from the image. You may need to add an alpha channel to the layer

first (Layer->Transparency->Add Alpha Channel)

1. Select rounded rectangle
2. Select->Invert
3. Edit->Clear

The next three steps shrink the original selection and save it as a path.

4. Select->Invert
5. Select->Shrink
6. Select->To Path

The next step restores the original selection

7. Layer->Transparency->Alpha to Selection

The next three steps turn the path back into a selection and subract it from the original to create a border

selection

8. Switch to the Paths dialog and select the path you created.
9. At the bottom of the dialog locate the Path to selection button.
10. Hold CTRL and press it (Subtract path from selection)

You now have a border selection which you can fill.

11. Switch back to the Layers dialog
12. Add a new layer and fill the selection with your desired fill.
