    I was wondering what is the simplest way of putting a simple back border on pictures using Photoshop. I know there's the rectangle tool, but I don't know how to use that. =P

    Using the rectangle tool, draw the inner box of the border you want. Do this on the image you want to have the border. Make sure you are doing this on a diffrent layer also. Once you have the dancing lines going around image and you like how wide the outter lines are. Go to -Select-, -Inverse-. Now there should be two dancing lines. One is on the edge of the image the other is still where you made it the first time. Then all you need to do is drop whatever color you want into it and your done. Just save the image as whatever file type you like.


    If anyone has a better way plz post, or if i didnt not explain it that well plz let me know. Im not a very good explaining stuff like this.

    Select all, then go to stroke and click 1, 2 or whatever and you're done. That's quick and easy :/

    Yeap ^^

    New layer = Ctrl + Shift + N, OK
    Select All = Ctrl + A
    Edit -> Stroke -> 1px -> Black -> Inside

    TADA! There's your black border =] Don't forget to save. :p

    Most of the time, a border isn't really necessary, but make a new layer, Ctrl A > Edit stroke and pick px and color.
