    Unhappy I is a n00b, help me.

    So I've been playing around with photoshop for the past 3 hours and all want to do is make a simple 1cm (or smaller) black border. I have Version 7.0.

    Someone give me some tips please.

    the eastiest way is to make a black box 2cm biigger than the image and place your picture above it. then flatten the image, and save as

    Been a few decades since I have tried anything with 7.0. But I hope it has not chnaged so much that this will not work.
    Go up to the select tab and click "select all".
    Then go to the edit button and click "stroke". Then pick the color and the pixel size that you want around the picture, from the box that pops up.
    Then go to the image tab and click on "canvas size". Increase the canvas size the amount of border you want.

    This seems a little cumbersome. But this is the way you do it if you want two color border. Like a black line with white outside of it. When you do your stroke, click the size you wish the inner line to be. Then make sure your background color is the color you want your outer line to be. Then decide how much outer line, (or border) you want and increase the canvas size like that. Then you will get something like this.

    The red being the stroke color, and the black being the background color. Then flatten the image and you are good to go.
    Holy Helen. That is a big picture. I will try and find another one.

    From the Image menu, select "Canvas Size"
    It will show the dimensions of your image.
    for example 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels high

    Increase the dimensions by however much you want the border to be. (maybe 810 by 610)
    Change "canvas extension color" to whatever you want (black).
    Click OK
