This short video pairs well with 99jon's and hatstead's excellent suggestions.
Open the image in the Expert workspace
Press Ctrl+A to select all
From the menu choose Edit >> Stroke
Try 25 pixels on the inside and set color to white or as preferred – see image.
Click OK then press Ctrl+D to deselect.
Depending on your image size you may need to experiment with the pixel width.
Or use inches or centimetres instead of pixels e.g. 1 in, 2 cm etc.
If you don’t wish to encroach on the inside of your photo simply extend the canvas.
Image >> Resize >> Canvas Size
In the images below you can see the original dimensions of 8.3 x 5.5 inches. I simply added one inch to each dimension and clicked OK & re-saved.
