Default Gimp Help Needed!!

I purchased Amanda's bottlecap tut and absolutely love it. BUT I can't for the life of me figure out how to put a border around an image. Can anyone help!?

Thanks,
Liz

What editing program is the tut in? That might help someone explain.

Select the area that needs a border (marching ants going around the shape to have the border), then in the drop down tabs along the top of the window select the "select" tab and about 2/3 of the way down, click on "border" and fill in the box, it will make an outline/marcking ants border that you can fill in however you want. There may be other ways too, I've had lots of luck googling for instructions, like "GIMP how to make a border."

HTH,

Gina

Thanks!

another way you can do it is using the elipse selection tool (the circle one lol) select around the circle you want to make a border, then go to edit>stroke selection>then use how many pixels you want the stroke to be and make sure you have the color you want the border to be already set. HTH! I use GIMP all the time, so if you have any questions feel free to ask

wow..I'm sure what you said made total sense..but my head is spinning..I need Gimp for dummies...lol...I'll have to play around w/it to see if I can do this as I've often wondered the same ?'s. Thanks for the info good thread!! I'd like to know how to make more elaborate bc images..I have this tut and it's great for basic caps but I'm very lost when it comes to adding a background, or border then an image and text..like those Peace Love Dance ect... caps. Anyhow..I'll be adding this to my list of to-do's today.
