How to add borders and frames to your pictures

posted on 13th of july, 2008

I am slowly getting back to the idea of writing tutorials. The first two were on how to isolate objects off of their background, and those were probably for an intermediate-advanced photoshop user. I've received a lot of feedback from people who found them useful (thank you all for all the encouraging feedback) and also from people who suggested that your average photoshop user is a beginner and needs more basic information and tutorials (a-ha!).

So, I remembered the days when I would open photoshop and end up throwing my arms up in frustration only because I had no clue how to resize an image... or to crop an image. It seemed so impossible and hard that all I wanted to do was go bang my head on the wall... At this point, I don't even know how I managed to overcome all that frustration and actually figure things out, step-by-step. Argghh!

Well, here we go, an "easy" tutorial for a photoshop beginner on how to accomplish one of the most basic and most common tasks imaginable - adding borders to your images, either for print or for web. It's probably too easy and simple of a task for most of you out here on DT, but who knows, right?
