Photoshop is used to create and edit images and shapes for publications and the Web. Adding a border to a new or existing shape or image only takes a few minutes. You can apply a border to a selected layer within the file. The stroke feature lets you customise the type of border you want to create. You can specify your border's width and colour and then position it inside, outside or centrally around a shape or image.
