KGPanels Border Art

I've been wanting to draw up some nice borders, something like Aftermath has. However, I can't seem to get them to work with KGPANELS. I can get the artwork loaded and I've done the design in powers of two. Looking at other border artwork it seems to be divided by 4 equally with top, bottom, sides. It just doesn't look right, borders never show properly.

Does kgpanels have a very limited border ability?

Hi I always had problems with making nice borders, could only make simple pixel borders until I found this: Backdrop Slicer

Makes border easy, just make a nice square border and this will slice and rearrange the image for you.

Hopes this helps you out.

Edit:
Sorry forgot to add, if you make the image 128x128 and then use a backdrop edge of 32, this works best for me.

Or if you don't want to run an .exe...

They are actually split into 8 sections. As such, your dimensions for the file should be 1:8 (while the length and width stays a power of two). So... 8x64, 16x128, etc. Then use an image editor which has a grid you can show and set this grid to divide your canvas into 8 equal sections (with subsections, if you like).
