    first off not sure what to call them...

    but how do i create frames/borders and apply them to multiple photos, i guess almost like a frame/border template ?

    if it helps i use GIMP and i have access to PS6 and CS3

    something like this, or even some kind of plain border..

    In PS6 it's under Windows > Content and in one of the drop down menus that appears > Frames.

    I didn't link anything.
    Open Elements Editor.
    Under Windows click on Content. It opens a box with two drop down menus. The one on the right, click it and pick Frames.

    I wasn't really sure how to make a vignette in GIMP, so I gave it a try. Here's how I did it (there is probably a better way...):

    1. Open your image (duh).
    2. Create a new layer.
    3. Use the elliptical selection tool and make an elliptical selection on the new layer. Invert the selection.
    4. Feather the selection (I did 100 pixles, play around and see what you like).
    5. Use the bucket fill tool to fill it black
    6. Play with the opacity until you get the look you want.






    Hope that helps. It's much easier to do in other programs...
