    Easy way?

    Increase your CANVAS size the amount you would like and pick your color.

    For an uncropped DX size sensor, i increase canvas size 107% for the width, and 110% for the heigtght for a horizontal composition. I then use the square marquee tool to fill it in and keep a 1-2 white pixel edge between the black and the image.

    i made an action for mine because i normally have my mattes on around 7 layers.
    the image is one layer, black pinstripe surrounding the image is another, white border approx half inch is another, another thin black stripe, and then white to the edge of the print.
    another layer has my name and the print title on the bottom.

    i use different layers so it's easy to change the colours of the matte simply by filling the entire layer. If the matte is on the same layer as the image then there is a good chance that the colour from the matte will bleed into the image and ruin it if there is a close match.

    keeping everything on different layers eliminates that problem. It also means that if i like it in white but a buyer prefers it in black it's simple to change without having to worry about the image being bled into.
