    Bro thanks for the advice but i have the following question hope you dont mind :

    1) If in ONLY can be done in PS then its kinda ex to invest just for border purpose so hoping for a cheaper option.

    2) Do you have to create one for every picture or you can do it up as a template? Possible to get a friend whom has PS to create it for me?

    Cheers!

    In photoshop, you can create "actions" that automated the size of the border as a % of the size of the photo.... or you can have a fixed size border for all sizes of photo..
    To apply the border, it is as simple as 1 click.... the rest is automated.

    Dont know what kind of investment you are referring to with regards to software... Haven done that in years.....
    Just got Lightroom yesterday.. haven figure how to use yet... lolx

    Was exploring LR yesterday doesnt seem it it supports 'actions"

    U can use lightroom to add borders to all your images... I use lightroom for all my photos... it is fast, efficient and pretty nice looking... I put a sample below...

    There are 2 ways to do the border thingy...

    the first way is using slideshow... use the slideshow features to design the borders that u want and then export the photos...

    the another way which I am using now is using plugin... search LR2/Mogrify plugin...

    I tried and tested, no need any plugin to do border and signature in Lightroom.
    Goto slideshow screen, update ur signature, choose ur colour of border, then just click on export.. all ur exported images come with the border and signature.

    at the slideshow module,
    select the slideshow tab on the top left corner
    select export slide jpeg slide show
    and you have the border.
