the borders on this signature, how did you make that diagnal texture pattern?
That is a brush. I couldn't find the specific one I used, but this pack
has a similar one. Note: I didn't use full opacity and did some 15% erases along the edging to smooth the transition/blending a bit.
The file type there should work for both photoshop and gimp I believe.
For gimp (the 1px border) I just go to Filters>Decor>Add Border *note adding border will always add at least 2 px to your img size*
For Photoshop, I use the Rectangle tool and manually enter the size of the siggy (usually 700x200). I select No Fill and a 1 px line.
If you need more detail on the brush usage let me know.
I experimented with this and i realized an easier and better way.
first you need to download a diagonal pattern pack you can search deviantart for that.
then you make your background and you duplicate the layer
Then You go to blending options
Texture > patterns and choose your pattern
Then you just lower the opacity until the desired result.
This is what i got
for borders just use the selection tool to define an area for your border and do the same thing
Hope i helped some people with this.
