hi,

thanks for the suggestion, i just downloaded faststone, very good software.

Now i am able to add borders to a image, add text on the picture one by one.

But the bad thing is i need to do it individually, cannot batch process them to add borders and text, also the text added seems cannot change the fonts.

suggest you read the manual carefully, it can do it in batch.

is it? Ok, will read up more on that when I am free. By the way can it edit in raw as I do not want to add borders to jpg as I understand it will degrade the iq.

If you're adding border to post them on the net then degradation in IQ shouldn't be a concern. If your intention is to print then there is no need to add border, just ask the lab to add it for you. If you just want to store them, why border (punt intended ;))?

you got the point there.

i am actually trying to put border and post on the net, not printing.

compare the photos side by side, before and after adding the border, i doubt any of us can tell any difference in IQ.

and you are just posting the photos on the net, wont make much difference one lar.. dun worry too much. ;)

thanks for the suggestion, i downloaded, another very good software.

But how about water mark? is it capable of doing watermark, or do we have to do it the manual way like faststone?
