Box Outlines in Photoshop
I love thick borders, so much so that I’m using them in almost every post, kind of the way I abused drop shadows when I first learned about them. I’m sure my self-restraint will kick in at some point, but in the meantime, I’m just gonna enjoy the moment. :) In the previous post, I used thick borders to outline some text, and I promised a quick tutorial to show how easy it is to add box outlines in Photoshop. Outlines are versatile — thick or thin — and you can use them to create many things, including vintage-inspired photo labels, just like this one. You can even layer multiple box outlines on top of each other to create elaborate borders and frames.
