Borders and frames for every use.
You can use Photoshop to add a border or frame to your work in seconds, whether it’s around one object or your entire project.
Sometimes you need to make something stand out in your work. With the Stroke or Outer Glow Layer effects, you can border or frame any selection, whether it’s a person or a bit of text. Select it, add a layer mask, and then click the fx icon at the bottom of the Layers panel to add and fine-tune effects.
Visit Image › Canvas Size to quickly increase the size of the area around your image down to the exact pixel, centimeter, or inch. Update canvas extension color to the color you’d like your frame to be.
Need an interior border to focus viewers’ attention? Try adding shadow around the edges of an image with a vignette layer. Or download a predesigned frame or border from Adobe Stock and paste it into your work.
If you want an irregular frame, or one that’s wider or shorter on different axes, you can use the Crop tool to manually drag out your image. Just like resizing the canvas, you can pick the canvas extension color of your choice.
