New script – Add Borders

Add borders script for Paintshop ProSometimes, you might want to add identical borders to the photos on your layout, but since you want the photos to be of different sizes. How do you do that? Adding the borders before placing the photos on the montage is not the solution since you will resize the photos, and therefore, the border will also be resized.

Do you think you can select the photo and expand the selection? Unfortunately, that will create rounded corners. If that is what you want, go for it. But if you intend to have square corners on your photos, you need this script.

You can choose any color for the border, any size (up to 100 pixels) and you can also have the edges straight or irregular.

Grab this script in the store: Add Borders.

cass-AddBorders-Template-01As a way to show you how this script can create identical borders even on photos of different sizes, I created this layered template for you. I had to tweak the end result since the script would merge the edge to the photo.

This is a full size layered template in PSD format.

News from the Campus

Did you attend the live presentation last week but felt you needed to see it again?

Did you try to attend but came in late?

Did you want to attend but had other things preventing you from joining?

Well, you are in luck. This live presentation will be repeated. Not a recording! It will be another LIVE presentation.

It will be showing the same techniques, but using a different template, different photos, and a different kit.

  1. I love tiny white borders to keep the pictures separated from the background layer when doing newer photos. Love doing 1, 2, or 3 borders when only a few pics on any given page. Love the irregular in an off white for older photos that I have scanned into my computer. So glad you made this script! It is a huge time saver!
