    Need help with Borders/Edges


    Hiya.

    I have made a little avatar, and want it, to have a little black border or edge, or what it's called, around of it.

    How do I make this?

    Thanks

    well this may sound too simple, but just use the line tool and draw 4 lines? lol

    Well, for a border around an avatar I usually do this:

    -Make a new solid layer the size of your comp.
    -Set the blending mode to "multiply".
    -Double click on the layer in the layers palette.
    -Apply a stroke, make sure the position of it is "inside".
    -Adjust the options to your liking.
