Not that I'm an expert -- just trial & error on my part too.

Rosary_KT is right that you have to create the "box" as one complete graphic & then slice it up into the subparts needed to construct the box.

I used a nice cheap program called Xara Xtreme

I made a write-up in another forum post [here].  Hopefully this link works & that the post is helpful.


Neutrio's post that he linked is an awesome one to look at for box borders.  It's the only reason I was able to figure it out without pulling all my hair out.  It's a great tutorial  So, to Neutrio, thank you so very much!

I'm getting closer!  When I have time to finish, I will post all of the pieces and original image.

Hm ... all I can think of off-hand is that there has to be some white space (like 1 pixel -- which is what happened to me) on the edge of one of the graphics.

What are the dimensions of each graphic?

It's the exact dimensions I'm still trying to figure out.  As soon as I get them I will post. 

(Boy, this would be a good thing to have a guide for.  Hint, Hint, AAron)
