Hi All,

How to make frames around pictures. Like black or gray frames. That make pictures nicer.:D. Can I make that on CS2?

There are all kinds of pluggins and actions that can create interesting frames.
Some really good ones are by Kevin Kubota http://www.kubotaimagetools.com/actions.html

but there are plenty of free ones - just do a google search.

Hope that helps,

A extremely easy but surprisingly effective way to create border is by expanding the image in CS2 (or any PS version) using the Canvas Size.

Under Image | Canvas Size, simply change the width and height to 102% chosing White "Canvas extension color". Press OK. Then come back to Image | Canvas Size and change the width and height to 106% but this time chose Black as the "Canvas extension color". You can see how this enhances photos at my B&W Frames collection at http://www.grrphotography.com/Collections/BWFrames/index.htm. If you want to bring out specific colors in your image play with the canvas extension color.
