    I would like the ability to add a border and or a title to some of my images. I used to be able to do this using an old version of Elements which no longer works with my OS (Mac OSX). I have Lightroom 4 and Aperture 3. Does anyone know if Lightroom as the functionality to do this (pretty sure Aperture does not as I am more familiar with it)? If not is there a software package that would allow me to add borders etc without running to a new Elements (or equivalent) which I don't need?

    Thanks

    Rob

    ONe of the only ways that I have been able to add a border and title successfully in LR4 has been to use the print module and print to a file, however this will strip out all of the exif data from the image. What this does mean is that you are able to make really nice borders.





    You can use the print module to ouline the image in one colour and then use the cell size to position on a "page"

    Try Irfanview. It's free, does borders & titles & loads of other stuff.

    You might find this useful for Aperture.

    (And it's free!)

    I do all my processing as normal in PS etc then pop into Irfanview for sharpening borders & titles. A doddle.

    I have downloaded BordersFX and will give that a go for time being as it works as a plug in for Aperture.

    Thank you all for the advice
