How do I Change the Border Color of a Box in Photoshop?

Changing a border colour in Photoshop is extremely simple, once you know where to look. The majority of quick Photoshop effects are located within a section called "Layer Styles." This menu contains effects like drop shadow, outer glow, etc. Although we use the term "border," Photoshop does not use this term. Instead, the "Stroke" effect creates or alters borders on an element. Changing the stroke can cause an element to pop from the background and pull greater focus, depending on the background.

Open the file you would like to work on in Photoshop.

Select the layer that contains the object whose border you'd like to change. If need be, select the specific object (only for object-based images).

Click "Layer" from the menu at the top of the program window.

Highlight "Layer Style" and click "Stroke."

Change any stroke attribute you see to achieve your desired look. Click "OK."
