    Just wondering what people's choice of bordering techniques were?

    In my class i'm being told to use the crop tool, extending it over the image, but i find this doesn't give me quite as much as control as i'd like.

    I know there's also editing the canvas size, does this offer any benefits?

    Or perhaps there's a programme (or Photoshop function) i'm missing that'll add your personalised boarder everytime?

    its the quickest imo, especially if you want to make the boarder a specific size for a particular image.....

    yep, you can make an 'action' for your boarders.... do a few searches on google for 'creating actions' and you should find a few tutorials. Once you've made one by specifying say 100pixels all round... it will give you that size boarder every time you click it.

    Personally tho, i just use the 'image size' window everytime i want to present an image.... that way i can decide whether it will look best with a large or small boarder.... or black vs white.... ;)

    Excellent. So i did a search, and found this. So, just so i understand, i can setup an action, then upon choosing it for instance, i can insert a new boarder, and (if necessary) a signature?

    Of course, i would just try it myself rather than ask more questions, but i can't currently access Photoshop.
