Default Re: I Need help w/ GIMP please...anyone???

are you talking about making a simple border?
drop down box -Filter-Dec0r-Border-pick the border size you want-colour if you want it to have texture and your all set! --you can also make it look iron using the bevel drop down instead and play with the ratio's -everything in Gimp is similar to PhotoShop -i love my photoshop but since having a linux and no more Microsoft or a Mac -im learning more and more about Gimp-still hate it
let me know if you have anymore questions i can try to help!

I'm not sure if its the easiest way, but this way worked for me.. It'll add borders around any shape, or outlines around text etc not just a plain page border like the other one.

What if you layer one image on top of the other? Like, if you wanted the dotted border like in the etsy link, make that the larger image and then layer the other image on top. Seems so simple so I'm sure it's not what you're talking about or it's not even possible

The only thing that comes to mind is to create 2 images- create a larger circle with the pattern that you want as an outline, the paste the smaller image in the center. That's the only easy way I can think of...

EDIT: I just saw iluvstarz and realized I posted the same idea.

you need to make each circle or picture in a different layer and then combine them all together. kinda like this

Ok i made one on my laptop so since i just got it i dont have any brushes or background on it so i just did a basic hello kitty one. The whole thing is that you have to make new layers. I opened a new page and i did it 320x320 then i went to advanced options and i changed the fill with to transparency. It will open a new window with a checkered back ground then i used the eclipse tool and i made a circle as big as my box. I then used the bucket tool and i filled it with lime green. Then i made a new layer and i did the same thing again except i made my circle not as big and i filled it with black i then made a new layer and i made a circle and i filled that one with white. I then open a new window and i made sure to open the pic as transparent. I put that on the white cirlce and i filled in the bow. I then merged down the image keep merging until you cant anymore then i copied and pasted to my template.

The way newtothis explained it is very clear and works very well, but I don't have the patience to do it that way so I have the round brushes that will do just borders. If you searches around I am sure you can find all kind of brushes.
