    Woot!

    This is my workflow, white border and a signature below.

    All you need is photoshop.

    1. Highlight the whole picutre, copy.
    2. Increase the canvas size to get the white border.
    3. Paste the image (it will be paste as a new layer).
    4. Go to layer styles, and add shadows for the current layer (which is the new paste image that is currently smaller then the background cos of the increased canvas).
    5. Insert a text mask, you'll get your text (as text is inserted as a new layer, repeat step 4 to get shadows).
    6. Flatten your image.
    7. Post!!

    Hope it helps.

    Or, alternatively, for workflow 1,2 and 3:

    1) Click Layer->Duplicate Layer -> OK
    2) Image -> Canvas size.. and increase by 40 or more pixels both height and width.
    This will also give you background border.

    What if you want the border to be black instead of white?

    Choose black as background colour first, before you increase the canvas, the rest are the same.

    U might consider recording your actions while doing your signature and just "Play" it to the succeding pictures.

    Actually, you can record the whole step but you can only apply it to the same image size.

    Hope it helps...
