Hello in this tutorial I am going to show you on how to create a tech border! I wrote this tutorial a few months ago and haven't bothered submitting it. Its very easy to make.

Items Needed:
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • A signature or a picture
1. Open a document of whatever picture or signature you want to put the border on.

2. Now go to layer>Duplicate layer

3. Use the Polygonal lasso tool to make a border around the signature/image.
Try to get a result such as this one:

4. Now, after making sure the top layer copy is selected hit ctrl+x to cut it out.

5. Now double click on the layer in the pallet to bring up a window or right click and select Blending Options.

6. Set these setting in the following places: Drop Shadow,Inner Glow, and Bevel and emboss.

7. Now after setting the following settings as I described above you should get the following:

This is it you're done however there is another part i have its optional but its up to you, all it does is make holes inside the border you made I do not have any screen shots of this.

~Optional~
Take the rectangular marquee tool again and cut out some "holes" in your border and add some text. To cut it out click CTRL+X.

Thats it Please Don't rip this tutorial. Thanks Mikhail.

I would like to add also,

if you hold the shift key whilst using the "line" selection tool, it only allows 45 and 90 degree angles, which makes it easier to get contempory "clean" lines.

Good tut there matey!

:P
