    well TECHNICALLY you could use paint

    but it is literally painful to do it that way

    otherwise, almost every basic imaging software will be able to do it. i think picasa can, but i'm not too sure

    you should get a more advanced one eventually to do adjustments to your photos though.

    I think if use MS paint, it will lose the details of the photos.

    yes, ms paint degrades photo very badly, probably due to high compression setting

    I recommend The Gimp. (it's a freeware btw)

    Under Decor options, you apply many variations or just a simple black border.

    Just use PhotoShop. Make a template border and integrate it into your pictures.
    Doesn't get much easier than that.
