Photoshop border question
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!
