Using PSP 5, 6, or 7; lets me create items on a transparent background,
which is helpful in a lot of situations. If you're using something else, you might be able to use the color-picker to set your background color on the various
"steps" and copy an item, then paste it into your work "as a transparent selection". I know you can do that in PSP 4.X versions.
WhhooooWhhoooo! Great news! Sandy Blair has created a free filter that will DO the 'switch top and bottom' FOR YOU!! Now that you know the process of getting your graphic ready to be seamless top and bottom, go grab the filter and save yourself a lot of work! Right now, look for the 'Downloads and Bonus Pack' section for this newest filter. Grab the 'bonus.zip' file that's in the 'few extra' link there. If you are new to 'filters', DO read the very helpful information near the bottom of the page, it will help you a lot.
A shrunk/miniature border background:
Another way of handling an image, making sure it will be seamless when used as a side-border item.
Now, all you have to do is place that border piece with the "body" section of your background!
