    Hi Folks,

    How can I put frames around my pictures they way I see done in so many posts here. I'm not looking for anything fancy just a plain white frame with maybe a black line round.

    I use Paint Shop Pro but the frames available are all a bit .... cartoony.

    I particularly like the frames Sultan has used here: http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=59667

    Any advice much appreciated!

    Not sure how it's done in PSP, I use photoshop and it's just a matter of increasing the canvas size by a few pixels or an inch with whatever bg color you want for something simple. You can also use blending options and layers to make it appear matted or in an actual frame.

    Thanks Johnboy.

    I'll have a read in the help files and see if I can figure it out.

    for anyone who wants to add frames to an image and doesn't want to work too hard on it: photoshop comes with an action set called "Frames" ... you just have to load it and play with the actions :)

    Here's a link to a good tutorial for adding a white 'gallery' style frame around your image, from The Lights Right Studio website. It includes adding the black line you mention and a title.

    Click here for tutorial.

    There are numerous other tutorials, actions and techniques on this site, some of which are very useful, so well worth a browse if you have time.
