Creating borders in Pixelmator.
Pixelmator Border Tutorial
What is Pixelmator?
is a cheap Photoshop alternative for the Mac which sports some similarities and powerfulness of Photoshop which is easy to use.
1. Create a new document and open your pictures you want to use.
2. Using the Selection tool on the toolbox, drag where you want the border to be. If you want to put a border around the whole picture, you can do that by selecting the whole picture by going to Edit > Select All or Command+A
3. Create a new, transparent layer and drag it to the top of the list of layers.
4. Go to Edit > Stroke... This dialog will appear:
In this dialog, you can change the color of the border and the size of the border. After setting the desired settings, press OK and your border will appear on your picture.
Tip: Double Borders: To do a double border, first make a white stroke, 2 pixel and do the same, but with a black border at 1 pixel.
Installing Fonts in Mac OS X
Font Installing Tutorial, Mac OS X
Mac OS X handles fonts differently. Fonts are stored in:
/Library/Fonts (Fonts stored in here can be used systemwide)
/Users/<username>/Library/Fonts (Fonts stored in here can only be used by the specified username)
Mac OS X will support ttf and ffil formats.
To install fonts, just drag it to:
/Library/Fonts (If you want it accessible to all the users)
/Users/<username>/Library/Fonts (If you want it accessible to yourself)
Mac OS X also contains Font Book, which allows you to manage your fonts on your computer.
To add multiple fonts, click on the + button and then specify the folder where your fonts you want to install, then press OK.
