    After making a new document (in this example 350x350 pixels) you find "Channels" view by clicking the tab "channels" at the top of your layers-view (press F7 if you don't see the layers overview).

    To make thing even cooler, you can add an "inner shadow" layer effect. Add a layer effect by right-clicking on the layer and choosing "Blending Options...". Use these settings:
