This is just an easy way to come out with a decent background, that really invovles little effort.
like this only with a simple border
-plz excuse the fact that you have to enlarge the pictures-
1. open a new document approx 400x150 (or any other size this really doesnt matter)
2. create a new layer
3. now fill this new layer with black using your paint bucket tool.
now select your gradient tool, like so(click on your paint bucket and select)
4.now go wild with your settings just make sure your mode is set to difference and your opacity at 100% (mess around with the options circled in red untill you get your desired effect)
(hint: i would leave the reverse, dither, and transparency deselected)
5. After you acheive your desired effect you can make it look better by going to filter>stylize>find edges , or filter>stylize>glowing edges , both of these give a neat effect, you can now also hit "crtl U" and pick whatever color you would like, after this create another NEW LAYER
6. now adding a border, simply select your rectangular marquee tool (the dotted line rectangle at the top left) and select a space near the edges, then go to select>inverse, and fill with your desired color
7. In order to make all of this one layer you can left click on all of the other layers where i have circled then hit "crtl E" this will make all of this one layer and you will be done.
