Part 2. Getting It All Together > Adding a White Border to Your Prints

Adding a White Border to Your Prints

A good way to add a white border to your prints, even when you're using a borderless printer, involves resizing the image to be smaller than the canvas (paper) size by the amount of the margin you want, and centering the image on the canvas.

With a picture in the active image area, choose Image, Resize, Image Size.

Type the new image width, such as 8 inches.

Click OK.

Choose Image, Resize, Canvas Size.

TIP

When to Resample

In step 2, check Resample Image and increase the resolution if the number in the Resolution field is less than 150. To avoid distorting the image, let the program calculate the height.


TIP

Yet Another Way

To add a white border without resizing the canvas, choose File, Print Preview. Check the Show More Options check box; then click the Border button. You can specify the width of the border in inches, millimeters, or points.


In the Width box, type the width of the print paper-larger than the image width-such as 8.5 inches.

In the Height box, type the height of the paper, such as 10.5 inches.

Click OK.

Load the printer with photo paper and click Print.
