I am trying to make a rope border on an 8.5 x 11 brochure. I downloaded a free set of ROPE BRUSHES and chose one to accomplish the rope on the top edge of my image which is attached. I did not have to brush on the rope with multiple clicks. It was one long, straight, rope.
I clicked on the image and the 8.5” top border was magically filled with a long thin rope-border. Next, I clicked on the bottom edge and an identical rope filled the bottom edge. But, the rope on the bottom edge was partially hidden by a layer on top of it. So I went out of brushes to work on the layering issue.
When I went back to the brushes, I saw 15+ jpegs. I assumed the jpeg’s were downloaded with the free brush, and I did not know that one could create a brush out of a jpeg, so I thought I was being scammed and deleted all of the jpegs.
I went back to the brushes, but realized that one of the jpegs must have been used to create the rope. I reloaded the brushes and spent 6 hours attempting to recreated my long-thin rope.
I want the rope to be long and thin, but if I increase the 1” identical brush size to 1600 pixels to get the rope long enough, then it becomes enormously wide (2") as shown in the attached image. HELP! I want my rope to be approx 1/4 in x 11".
The 2nd rope in the attached image is exactly the width I need. How do I elongate it without increase the width?
