That's what may be done with Photoshop
BTW : will you allow me to use it, Zen ?

That border isn't what I really want. I want this to look like it belongs in the middle of a disc.

Yeah Arc, that looks great, how do you do that?

Though I'm going to give the colors a more 3-d effect rather than just a border.

That's with photoshop, Zen
If you want 3D effects on the colors, that's also possible

Have a looky here pal, although the example shows the text effect, I'm sure you could apply it as a border

The reason I'm trying to put this together is, for a front end to a game I'm developing for the Palm Pre.
