In order to add a border you will resize the canvas, to do this
follow these steps:
the border dimensions you want around your picture; this can
be in inches or pixels. Use
the same number for both width and height.
Hit OK, and you have a black border around your picture.
For a double border- do this two more times. In my example I have used another white
thicker border 0.15inches notice how now I have switched the
background color to white.
And then added another thin black border of 0.10 inch.

layer, drag it into a new layer (the little square on the bottom
of the layers pallet that looks like a turning page) to make
- Then delete the original background
layer (drag it into the trash can on the bottom). You can now
manipulate the copied layer.
- Select it and then click on
the little "F" in the circle in the layers pallet,
select stroke, select the size of the border you want (use the
little slider), then change the position to inside and change
to the color you want. This will put the border on your background
are finished- time to print or upload in the DSP gallery
