I’m a sucker for a border and Photoshop has a raft of ways in which you can create a border from scratch. The only downside with some Photoshop border effects is they can look digitally created and by that I mean they lack the subtle changes and randomness that only a handmade border provides.
So here’s a solution. Paint your own borders and turn them into custom brushes. Since Photoshop CS6 brushes can be up to 5000 pixels long, twice the size of Photoshop CS5 and that opens up a lot more creative possibilities.
To get you started we’re sharing the same brush image that you’ll see used in this video. All you need to do is download it.
This takes you to Gavin’s Adobe Creative Cloud page and all you need to do is press the Actions button and then choose download. No sign ups, no catches and no fees!
