Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006 Users


I use Photoshop7, but decided to try Microsoft digital image suite 2006 since I wanted to use borders. Most of them are the kind I dont want (star, heart, film strip borders) I want sloppy/streaky borders but neat. These borders are all over the place, and I dont understand why you would put a border under your image? Does anybody have any examples with borders from this program. Once I mess with it more, I will post some examples. thanks
Desiree

W.    "I want sloppy/streaky borders but neat".

It would help if you made up your mind which you want, Desiree. Want them sloppy? Or neat?

  Desiree,
I use MS Digital Image Pro, but rarely use borders.

It sounds like you are looking at the Designer Edges or the Stamped Edges. Have you tried the Art Stroke Edges? This lets you choose from bunches of different brush strokes, and gives you lots of flexibility to customize how it will look. Maybe one of those will give you the neat/sloppy/streaky look you want.

Thank you Chris, I will try a bunch of the art stroke ones to see what they offer. However would you know the difference in putting the border in front of or behine image? I assume if you put it behine the picture, then your picture reduces in size to accomodate the border. I have loaded some examples:

  No, if you put the border behind the image, then the image covers some of the border (like in your first example). If you put the border in front of the image, then the border crops into the image (like in your second example).
