    Default HELP! Stuck with Photoshop Elements

    Hi guys,

    I spend 3 hours last night trying to add a border to my pics but to no avail. I am sure it is a very simple process but I am just totally lost. Yes I suck at photoshop! Am using Elements 6. can someone please help me out. I am really a beginner here. Tried looking at all the tutorials online and also youtube but still can't get it. I must be doing something wrong.

    Thanks in advance.

    hmmm maybe you can try "resize canvas" to create a border?

    Thanks a lot lohkam for the link. I finally managed to get a border!!! However I still have a few questions. What resolution do you set the image to? Also I noticed that the image is no longer as sharp after I applied the border. Usually what kind of numbers with regards to resolution/pixels do yuo guys use?

    Thanks a lot guys. This forums really has helped me a lot.

    Cheers

    note that sometimes when viewed at a smaller size large images can look like rubbish
    this is true for many photo storage viewers, and is true for some computer monitors, unless yours is the highest end.

    i'm not sure what you're talking about, but sure sounds like it
