HOW TO ADD A BORDER IN PHOTOSHOP

1. Create a New Layer

Open the photo of choice in Photoshop.

Go to the main panel, and select “Layer”. Next, click on “New” and then “Layer from Background”. This step is essential since later on, it will let you alter the frame color much easier.

2. Specify the Dimensions

Now, we’ll specify the size of our classic frame. In order to do this, navigate to the “Image” tab. Click on “Canvas Size” in the fly-out menu. For those who prefer using Photoshop keyboard shortcuts, press Alt+Ctrl+C/Alt+Cmd+C.

In this window, you’ll be able to change the size of your Photoshop border. Since we want to use relative values, when specifying the border’s size, we need to check the corresponding box. After that, enter the preferred width and height.

An important thing to note here is that the number you entered will be distributed between opposite sides. So for example, if you want the height of your border to be 5 inches, you need to enter twice that number, which is 10, in this case. Click “OK” once you’re done.

3. Fill It with Color

To fill that space with color, we’ll have to navigate to the bottom of the Layer’s Panel and click on the fourth option from the left. You’ll see a new menu pop up. Choose the first option – “Solid Color.”

4. Move the Fill Layer

Your image is now blocked from view by black canvas. To fix this, move the layer you just added below the one that contains your image.

5. Alter the Color

To alter the frame’s color from black, click twice on the layer’s color swatch. Drag to select a color and desired hue.

6. Done! Enjoy the Result

Now you know how to add a border in Photoshop in 5 simple steps. move on to more difficult Photoshop tutorials, like how to make a collage in Photoshop.

Method 2. Adding a Custom Border

If you want to get creative with your frame by adding an interesting pattern – follow the steps below.

1. Fill the Layer

Upload a photo of your choice. Then, we’ll fill the layer with a color, as we did in the previous tutorial.

2. Set the Color to White

You’ll see the Color Picker window appear. Select white color and press “OK”.

3. Place your Photo in the Foreground

Your image can’t be seen now, since it’s completely covered with white. In order to place your photo back in the foreground, you’ll need to invert the mask. Go to the Image tab, and choose the second option from the top – “Adjustments”.

Select “Invert” from the fly-out menu that appears. Alternatively, use the Ctrl+I/Cmd+I hotkey. This will bring your image back into the foreground.

4. Grab the Brush

Open the Brushes Panel. There are several ways to do this. You can either click on the Windows tab, and then choose Brush, or activate it using the F5 key. Choose a brush you want to draw a frame with.

5. Start Drawing

Start drawing your frame. You can change its color once you’re done with any hue you wish.

Note: If you want to make some adjustments to the photo just let me know. I can do it for you at a very low cost. You can hire me to edit your photo.
