Framing Tutorial

There are many ways to frame you photo.  This is how I do it.  I use the canvas resize
 option.  Nancy asked me how I frame my photos, this is one way.
I use Photoshop CS but this was done in Photoshop Elements for Nancy

1. Open an image that you want to frame.

In your tool palette make sure you have the color you want in the Background as
 your border. In this case I will start off with white as the inside border & the outside
 border will be red.

Make sure you start with the size that you want to post.  By going to image/resize
once you have the size, now with the color selected in the background on the tool palette. I am using WHITE. 

2. Go Image/resize/canvas size increase the number by the size of the trim you want.
example width is 5.931 & Height is 3.931  So I just increase this a little for a thin line framing the photo, to width 6.031 & H- 4.031 hit OK

3. Now, I change the background color to red for the larger border.
go to image/resize/canvas size & increase numbers from W-6.028 H- 4.028
to W-6.328 & H- 4.328 HIT OK
