I need to create a 4x4 "photo frame" that holds 16 images.  The finished product will be 46" x 47" and it needs to look like darkened, burnished copper.  I am new to Adobe (a Corel convert) and cannot find a tutorial for this.  I thought I could build a table or grid and then manipulate the lines (Corel-style) but I cannot even figure out how to draw a table or grid... Am a newbie... Sorry.


If someone knows of a tutorial or can help me figure out how to do this I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    For starters, you could use the Rectangular Grid tool (it's underneath the Line Segment tool). Just click once on the artboard and enter your dimensions and the number of dividers.

    I suspect you won't find one for copper, but you might search for other metal as a start and then adapt the methods.
