how do you guys get the boarders around all the pix? i can't seem to figure it out in pshop?
i go into photoshop
increase the canvas size while anchoring the center of the picture
use the paint bucket tool to fill in the new area
dunno if there's a macro or shortcut or what not for that...works for me
Select All (ctrl +A)
Select > Modify > Borders (set pixel length from edge)
Select > Modify > Expand (set to half of your borders number)
Fill selection with black.
Image, canvas size, 60x60 pixels while checking the Relative box. Comes out good with the full size 3504x2336 images.
I usually put an ad out in the local paper to rent one of my extra rooms and then when they here and paying the rent I gather them into a circle and put the photo on the floor in the middle of them.
Jk, but borders can be done in a number of ways. I like a double one and would expand the canvas by about 10 pixels on all sides then fill it with black, then do a stroke around the photo of about 2-4 pixels in white. That is when I do them, but I dont normally do it.
wow. took that too far...haha
hit d to get back to default black and white.
increase canvas size by whatever you want.
switch the default black and white.
increase canvas size once again.
substitute black and white for whatever color borders you want.
I just use the crop tool and go beyond the picture. Easier and plus you can see how big the border will be. It will be whichever color is set as your background color. Also, on macs if you hold down the alt/option key, the border will be even on both sides.
