Setting up a 2D texture to be a bordered sprite

To properly scale a 2D texture to the screen size, we may need to make it bordered. This allows us to force the resolution, but not scale all the parts of our image, in order to maintain the original appearance of the image. Buttons are often bordered because their appearance depends strongly on how corners are scaled, and we don't generally want them to scale.

How to do it...

  1. To begin, we need to import our image. We can do this by right-clicking on the Project panel and then selecting Import new asset....
  2. Using the navigation menu on your computer, locate an image and import it. As a result, the image will be in our project and it can be used everywhere within the current project.
