How should I go about this simple project?

Hey everyone, 

 

I'm trying to take my photos and put them on a white border in photoshop so that when I print them, they have a white border. The thing is, I'm trying to make them all very consistent and with a specific amount of white border.  SO- here's the question: How do I go about setting up a 16x20" print with a 10x15" image smack in the middle of it? Further- how should I set this up so I can do it with all of my images? Can I make an action out of this somehow? 

 

I will also want to do this with larger and smaller sized prints which would concordantly have different ratios of image/border.

Making such stuff adaptive will typically require a script, as the functions needed like the Resize Canvas use either absolute pixels or percentages, but cannoit calculate a consistent border of their own. The other part of the equation is of course your printer, which may be the better answer here. You could try to dial in a fixed non-printable area, assuming you actually use already pre-cut photo paper of the intended output size.

Thanks for the input! I was thinking maybe there's some way to have the same white 16x20" (@300ppi) and just drop a full size image onto it and have there be some way of making every image the same size. 

 

I'm sending my files to a printing house, so I don't use my own printer unfortunately!
