As usual the little bollocks is speeding away all the while keeping a little red eye
firmly locked on me....

Another great shot!

I have to ask. How do you create your borders?

I think it's a custom layer. Am I right ?

You guys have to ask in the middle of a Bond film:D

In PS I change the canvas size and make sure it's black. I then use the square selection tool to quickly get a selection just outside the photo area, then I stroke the selection with an off white. I get pretty sloppy sometimes as you can see if you look real hard at the above image. I use this method before I downsize for the web. For my 3648 x 2736 images I extend the canvas three hundred pixels and stroke the selection six pixels.

Hope this helps

Back to Bond:)
