Adding a border to a picture in PS

Well, looky here. Another post. There hasn’t been one here in weeks from anybody, so I figured I’d stop this place from getting lonely.

Of course you need your picture first, and if you didn’t know how to load it without a picture then I really don’t even know what to say.

Select the entire picture like so:

PS1

I kind of assume you know how to do this, but just humor me will you? From there you can go back to select –> modify –> and there’s a neat little border option. How convenient.

PS2

Why don’t we click on it. Here you can tell it how big you want the border to be (in pixels, natch). Let’s try a pixel size of 9 for this demonstration, shall we? Click okay.

PS3

Nawt bad. You can see a “preview” of what the pic with the border will look like.

PS4

If you’re satisfied with that, then go up to edit –> fill. The default is background, but we don’t want that. Open the drop-down box and click color to open up a color palette. Choose what color you want (in this experiment, black).

PS4

Notice that there’s an opacity option. It’s always set to 100% by default like it is in the picture.

PS5

Voila. A cute little bordered picture.
