EDIT: 17th/Sep/2010

Few people already asked me for this tutorial, so I finally decided to do it.

I hope you find it useful to make a simple dotted background ^3^

If anyone's having trouble getting rid of the white background on the dots layer, I figured out how to do it:

First, of course, you need to hide the Screen layer with the color on it, then go to the Channels section.

At the bottom of the section, there's a little button that has a dotted circle on it (it should say "Load Channel as selection" when you hover the cursor over it). Once you click it, it'll select anything and everything that's white, preferably the white areas around the dots.

Then you go back to Layers, go to your Screen layer, make it visible again, and hit the delete button. Then you change the layer from Screen to Normal, and presto!

How do you make the border for the Sakura+Ino text?

Most likely she went to 'layer', 'layer style', then used stroke.
That is how I do it. :D
