Creating a border layer

To give the image a finished look, you'll add a border to it.

1 Click the Create a New Layer button (a) in the Layers palette. (It doesn't matter which layer is currently selected because you're going to move the new layer a little later.)

2 Double-click the new Layer 1, and type Image Border to rename it.

3 Drag the Image Border layer to the top of the Layers palette stack, until a black line appears immediately above the Words layer set, and then release the mouse button.

The Image Border layer is now the top layer in the image.

4 Choose Select > All to select the entire image.

5 Choose Edit > Stroke. In the Stroke area, enter 5 px for Width and click OK. (Or, for a more dramatic black border, enter a larger number, such as 10 or 15 pixels.)

A 5-pixel-wide black stroke now appears around the entire image.
