Making most borders is very easy. I'll explain a few in this tutorial. Pixel Border The simplest one to make.

Create a new layer on top of your image/layers. Select all (CTRL+A). EDIT>STROKE. stroke4tj.png The parts circled in red can be changed to your liking, as is the color.

Tech border More complicated.

Create a new layer (see above). Choose the polygonal lasso lasso7nr.png Now, hold shift (Holding shift makes the clicks bend at 45 and 90 degrees and straight lines are parallel to the edges) and click around the perimeter, taking care not to touch the edges or go over them. Also, don't make it too fat. Once you close it, invert the selection and fill it with any color/gradient/texture/style you want. Here's what I got: tech1kj.png Filled with red and 2 pixel inner bevel. It looks good as it is, but you can add more stuff to it or remove parts from it. Use your eraser at 50% opacity and pencil mode and erase parts from it. tech13ag.png You can add a glow, a shadow, etc. depending on the theme.

I'll let you practice that and I'll continue tomorrow. :)
