    Hey all! I was wondering if you could think of any good names for this photo. It was taken, obviously, on a beach in Tanzania, Africa on the island of Zanzibar. It will be printed and hung in a friends home so I need something...substantial, haha. Also, if you have any alternative border suggestions, I could use those as well. I'm diggin' the white but am not to sure about the width or name placements.

    Oh, and any CC as well :)

    Thanks in advance!

    Does it need a title? I think just the location at the bottom might be enough.

    Also, I'd make the border a little wider on the bottom than on the top (just move the image up a little bit).

    Yea I guess it doesnt need a name...just thought Id try :)

    Heres a question: I agree with you about it being wider on the bottom. But the way I do borders is to adjust the canvas size, and it does it equal on top/bottom and sides. How do I do them individually?

    I'm not sure of the best way. Is the image on a separate layer from the background? If so, just activate the layer and move it up.

    Or, I'd just create the border like you have, then select the image part (magic wand the border and inverse the selection), then move it up that way etc.

    Don't ruin that photo by making it black and white. I think the original version's frame is fine if the text is going to be there, otherwise make the frame square, but I think keeping it white does the photo justice.

    Thanks so much!! Yea I think I prefer the color, but it seemed like a good shot to at least try in black and white :) Appreciate the feedback SO much!
