Try making your image at 1300x300 then resize it to 650x150 and save. Or start with double the size of the end product.

Does the resolution have to be changed, too? The default resolution seems to be 72 pixels/inch - is that enough?

Not sure about that, you can try about 150 and see how it goes, as a science experiment. Just use resize and not the scaling, which is dragging the image handles or nodes.

Tom, Gary and Athene,

In your set up for making the border ...do you not have these options?
Attachment 174247


#1 is the shaping of the corner ...from a round corner,scalloped or chamfered corner
#2 is where you can shape any corner by increasing or decreasing the x and y axis.

Not sure you have these options with CS5 but I do in Corel Draw GS 5X

Tom, I dont have any formal training in graphics .... still I am telling what I do , and those rough corners dont appear .

You are making a shape and work in it ..... after making the shape, ctrl+click on the shape to select the pixels of the shape, create a new layer, fill the new layer with paint bucket tool . Now hide the original shape , and work on the new layer which is an identical copy of the shape layer but doesn't have a shape path to make it look jagged .

If you find this method is childish, please dont laugh at me ... I am saying that I have no formal training .... so my methods are not formal. But it works .
