Chapter 7. Performing Basic Image Tasks > Increase the Area Around an Image

62. Increase the Area Around an Image


Each image has a canvas—essentially the image background. The benefit of thinking of an image's background layer as a canvas is that it helps you conceive how that layer can be stretched to change the size of the area on which you can paint, draw objects, and insert text. For a newly imported digital photo, the image is “painted,” if you will, to fill the canvas. You can expand the background layer (the canvas) of an image such as a photograph, for example, to make room for a frame, and fill the new area with color and apply a filter, style, or effect. Or you might simply want to expand the canvas to create more room in which to add a clip from another image, an object, or some text.
