In this tutorial I will teach you how to make a tech border that looks the same on all sides from scratch. 1. Make your document 1.bmp 2.Go to your Polygonal lasso tool & holding your shift key down to make stright lines. Make it to look anyway you want / put some curves in it so you get a effect in the next step, make it in a 'L' shape. 3.Go to layers / New layers fill / solid color & choose a color / you can change this all you want later with styles & layer style / click OK. 4.Go to layer & duplicate your layer, now click your move tool & use you arrows on your keyboard to move your new layer around. you can do this as many times as you want! make some gaps like you see here then go to layer merge visible / now you should have somthing like this with gaps in it. 2.bmp 5.Go to layer & duplicate your layer, now go to edit / transform rotate 180 / now click your move tool & use you arrows on your keyboard to move your new layer around. line it up as stright as you can then go to layer & merge visible, should have Somthing like this! 3.bmp 6.You can change this all you want now with styles & layer style / resize it / crop it / what ever! 7.This tutorial is just to give you a idea how to make your border perfect looking / you can use your marquee tool to add some more holes & stuff / or erase eges that stick out. 8. After step 4 you can also go to edit / difine brush set & name it / then you will always have it / save as png. will work to. 9. I turned it in to this, but you can make alot better ones, Its limit less. 4.bmp 10. I think that should do it.

Very neat tutorial.

I used to use a lot of tech borders, and my method wasn't as efficient, nor as cool as this :)

Nice work.
