    One of the tips or techniques I've learnt in my short time here is the use of borders.

    I think it really focuses your attention on the image.

    So far I've use Flickr and FastStone Image Viewer to create borders.

    I have Adobe Photoshop 5 Limited Edition and haven't quite got the hang of creating borders with it, sigh.... Any help with that?

    I am interested to hear what You are using to create borders and/or opinions on size and color....

    Just a test image of No Knead Bread :)

    Cheers, Don.

    I created an action in photoshop that adds a border to pictures by increasing the canvas size and setting the colour to black.

    Ohh, now that's just too easy :)

    Click on "Image" and then on "Canvas size".

    On the pop up box increase both sizes by .25 inches.... or whatever.

    Done.

    Thanks Sideburns...

    Cheers, Don.
