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!

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

I'm still very confused about getting the white out...it seems you skipped a step :?
What am I supposed to be deleting...??

Help! This is the only tutorial I've found even close to explaining this, but i still can't get rid of the damn white. :/

I always find that around the edges there is a little whatever pale gray which then makes them look poor quality - especially if I'm going to reuse on a dark background. How do I can cut the picture perfectly without that? =(
