Hi everyone,


I currently have this border artwork (in a straight line & print repeat pattern), but i'm wondering how i can make it into a corner border as well for a rectangular artwork.

 

An example of a corner border:

You might be able to duplicate the patter to four layers, then use a layer mask that hides the corners at a 45 degree angle to create the mitered look.

Hi Chuck, thanks for the tips! So i did the 4 layers, but i'm stuck at the layer mask part. How do i hide the corners at a 45 degree angle with the layer mask?

I create a little script years ago to create a mitered one inch selection on the document left side. I used the script in action that fill it with a frame pattern in a new layer. the was the duplicated an rotated 180 and aligned to the document right side. These frame layer were above the top and bottom frame pieces. In case there were rounding issues with the mitered selection there would be no gaps in the corners for the top and bottom frame pieces were not mitered.

var frameRef = [

doc.selection.select(frameRef);

// Reset units to original settings
app.preferences.rulerUnits = orig_ruler_units;

If you create mitered mask the corner patterns will not line up unless the patters are like wood  molding patterns even then you have to rotate the patterns to line up correctly.
