    You can enlarge your canvas and change the color to black. Well thats how I know how to do it anyways.

    Easiest way to add a border is to click Select-All. Then click Select-Modify-Border. Then select the pixel width. Then go to Edit-Fill-Color. Pick your color. The blending mode can be normal or you can try dissolve for a cool effect. You should record an action set to save time in the future with this.

    Do this:

    Image > Canvas Size

    then make sure the "relative" box is checked, and change the width and height to pixels, not inches.

    Use a number, like 20, and put that number in both the width and height boxes. Then choose your color (preferrably black).

    You can also use combinations. First you can do a 2 pixel white border then a 20 pixel black border that will give you a combo, that's what I use.
