Thread: Framing and Printing

  1. #1

    Default Framing and Printing

    Hello experts here,

    Let's say I've taken a photo in regular format(what ever the digital camera throws out) and I want to print it to 4R photo, but I want a white frame around the photo.

    What should I do? Perhaps someone already have a PS action to do this?


    Regards
    Steve

    no need to be so troublesome. You just crop by 4 inches by 6 inches and tell the shop to develop with borders. They will shrink the size to fit in the border.

    depends, i'm not sure if all shops provides this service though,
    if u want to know how to do the border yourself, u can check out the link at the CS homepage.

    then record it as a action in PS next time u just click a button will do~

    The tips there basically just increase the size of the photo by the border width. I'm not sure when it get's sent to the printer, whether they will position away the border.. or will the photo be cropped

    if u want to prevent the photo from getting cropped, after u add the borders, adjust the image size to 6:4 ratio like what nemesis32 mentioned.

    edit* if u dun require any fanciful borders, shops like beautiful memories @ stamford house will help u add in the borders when u process ur prints there, they also help to adjust ur colours and etc.
