    Hi Andrew,

    There are probably a number of ways to do this, but I use the Image>Canvas Size option in CS2. This opens up a "Canvas Size" dialog from which you can easily create the border effects that you're after.

    The default behaviour is to extend the canvas equally all around the image, so just type in a new value for widthand height, select the canvas extension colour, click OK and hey presto. The new width and height that you type in can be absolute dimensions or relative (i.e., added on) to the existing canvas size .... there's a checkbox called "Relative" to control this.

    So lets say you want a thin white keyline surrounded by a larger black border. Set the canvas size dialog to "Relative", increase both the height and width by 0.1cm, set canvas extension colour to white and click OK. Then repeat, but using a new height and width of say 2cm and setting extension colour to black.

    Just add text using the standard text tool in a contrasting colour so it shows up. You can adjust the opacity of the text layer so that it "blends" into the border and does'nt look so harsh.

    HTH,

    Dave.
