I was wondering how to add professional looking borders to my photography?
Which computer platform are you on?
If you're on a Mac it's built-in (bundled) and also hundreds of freebees to batch 100s or 1000s at a time.
If you're on PeeCee I guess PS and DL some free scripts - there are many!
Not sure that this is what you mean..
Here's how I add mine in Photoshop..
Open your image. Minimize.
Create NEW image (will be background) - paintbrush it a color if you dont want white.
You want to make the PPI the same.
Make your image slightly smaller than your NEW image (background) so the background overlaps resembling a border.
Drag your image to the background image (layer).
Add text or a logo to your overlap border.
Does that help?
I'm sorry if you meant something different..
If you want more help, ship me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you use Photoshop, there are plugins (some are free) that give you many more options than the basic white matte or the color borders. It actually gives options for actual picture frame looking borders.
