Hi guys, I'm using photoshop to create files in which my artwork is displayed in stock images... in other words I buy stock images of living rooms and create images in which my paintings are then added to the stock image via photoshop. I'm good with adding shadows in order to make the paintings look more at home in the stock images but I can't figure out how to add a border / frame to my paintings. Any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated!! thanks so much

Michelle

Make sure you create your frame or border on a separate Layer so you can easily return to it and make changes.

Since you know how to create a shadow, a solid border is just as easy. In the layer effects is stroke. Just add that instead of a shadow.

And I notice in PS CC2015 – not sure if it's in earlier versions of Photoshop as I never use it – Filter > Render > Picture Frame. It gives you a wide selection of frames and shapes.

Picture frame was introduced a few versions ago. But is still after CS6 (creative cloud). If I recall picture frame like trees and flames require the GPU to render. I could be wrong, but that is my thinking.

I'm more or less a newbie to web design and I'm having the same problems, can't put a border around my image.

I'm working in both the current versions of Photoshop and Dreamweaver but can't find "Enable Stroke" anywhere, either in Dreamweaver or Photoshop?

Commands in Dreamweaver doesn't give me any options, even though a pop up box appears, there's nothing in it to edit?

Any help would be appreciated, I'm also like another poster, if you use abbreviations, I'm not likely to know what your talking about.

I've somehow stumbled my way in finding how to do it.

How though, I'm not sure I can remember!

Have a look at the Photoshop Frame Actions presets, which you can modify to suit your requirements.

An old-school way do do this is have an active selection, and Edit > Stroke.

Thanks Derek, that's exactly what I've done, as per your image. But decided not to go with pink, it doesn't suit me 😉
