So I've seen that alot of sites have these really nice content box borders or title bars.. anyone have any suggestions on how to make these? Or these images you've picked up from somewhere else or made them yourself? and the most important question, how do you implement them?

Thanks in advance!

I'd like to /bump this topic as well...I have used GRsites and such for other images, but I'm specifically wondering if there are any sites that have free or example images for content box borders...I can't see myself being talented enough to design these from scratch...

You don't really need a guild portal specific one, You can do a search for gifs and website banners and just pick something you like. There are TONS of things out there.
That said, I'm probably going to upload what I've been working on this weekend to share.

As far as where to learn, check out the Master CS thread tips n tricks a few posts below this one. Yah, instead of linking it Ima make you search 

As far as *cough* admiring someone's borders. On the mac, with Safari, if I right click a page I have an option to View Info. This gives me a media window with every single link and a viewer to see it. I can then easily right click and save the image. Fair warning, many images are cropped and still take time to put back together or some cloning.

Generally, you should ask someone before using their art. Forums are a good spot.
http://www.deviantart.com
is a great resource for free art.
