Photoshop: Creating Frames

In my previous post i pomised i was going to have a tutorial on how to frame your images here is three ways of doing it.

Step 1: Open Photoshop (i think this will work in elemts as well as lightroom, not 100% sure)
Step 2: Drag/Open your image in Photoshop, go to Image>Canvas Size (Alt+Ctrl+C). This will open the following dialog box:

Check the box that says "Relative" this means that the numbers that you choose will work as lock so you dont get more on side then the other.
The Canvas extension colour box allowes you to choose the "new colour" that is going to appear, in most case you will probably use white or black.

You will end up with something looking like this

Thats a good enough for some people, you can repeat the process above serveral times using diff frame sizes and colours. Here is another exmaple doing the Canvas size three times
