Creating Borders in Photoshop

Adding borders to image can be great for various reasons; they can be used to locate where an image needs to be cut from the paper or for aesthetic purposes.

Now that I have resized the image and completed my editing I will now add the border to the image.

To do this I will need to add a stroke to the actual image but at the moment I can’t as the image is a background not an actual layer. So I need to make the background a layer to which I can add the border.

To make the background a layer I drag down the padlock to the rubbish bin and delete it. This makes the background a layer. Now I go to edit and click stroke.

This brings a pop-up window, allowing me to customise different properties of the border I want to create.

I will first create a white border, with the size of 30 pixels.

Now I will add another border, which will be black and at the size of 15 pixels.
