Photoshop border question

Virginia7074May 25, 2005

I used Photoshop 5.5 to create a magnet for my school last year. Need to update it this year and it's almost finished, except that I want to put a solid black border around it and cannot for the life of me get anything but a gradient. I dragged the select tool around the outside, went to Select, Modify, Border, typed in the size, clicked the background color (black) and selected black on the palette. When I click the paint bucket, it pours a gradient around it. The kicker is that I put a solid black border around it last year - didn't even know you could do a gradient border! I don't use PhotoShop very often, but need an EPS file. I know 5.5 is old, too, but my school will get a newer version next year. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Sorry about that Virginia,
Everyone must be out doing their Spring cleaning?

I use PSP7 & 8 and it works with a click of the button.
No need to drag and pour.

That's OK, Urlee. Our URL is changing next year, so I'm on hold until we find out what it will be; otherwise, we'd just have to redirect. Last year, I think I changed the canvas color to black - or maybe created a new document with a black canvas - then copied it. I'm going to try to recreate that. Thanks!

Sorry about that Virginia. I thought for sure someone here could help you as I thought some used PhotoShop?

Good luck with what you do do and stop in to peek here once in awhile.
