If you're using photoshop it is easily achieved by "image>canvas size" and setting an appropriate number of pixels (what is appropriate depends on the size of your image. At the bottom you can select the colour of the border.

also double click the background layer to make it a floating layer rather than a locked layer so you can put layers under and have other layer options.

frame i tend to use that is simple and effective is use canvas size, set to relative and then type 20 in the height and width which will add a 10 pixel border around the edge. control click the background layer which will quickly create the right size selection, then invert, create a new layer, fill with black, invert selection again, create a new layer, change fill colour to white, then edit, stroke, centre, 1 pxl and ok which will create a single pixel line round the inside of the frame. if you want to add some depth, add a layer under the black frame, fill this layer with black, with the border selection active, go to select, modify, contract, 5 pxl, then select, modify, feather 4, then press delete, which will cut out the centre of the layer leaving a feathered, shadow effect around the inside of the frame.

this sounds complex but is easier when actually doing it Grin
