Just a 'soppy' little black border.

    But IMVHO what a difference it can make.

    Not enough people use them or frames I don't think.

    IMO it finishes the photo off.

    This was done on my iPad using the PS Express App.

    A mundane seascape, it'll never be a great shot, it's just for comparison, before and after.

    guess?
    Dave, I don't bother with frames for web posts but I can see the benefits. Maybe not black :smile: I have found that a skinny border on prints can mimic a cut mat if subtle enough.

    Since this forum supports HTML, then you can use IMG tag to have borders around your linked images

    PHP:
    <img style="border:1px solid black" src="URL FOR IMAGE GOES HERE">
    <img style="border:1px solid black" src="http://budeny.smugmug.com/2015/Snow-Time/i-8P9QfHD/0/S/EP508987_LR-S.jpg[/IMG]

    PHP:
    <img style="border:5px solid red" src="URL FOR IMAGE GOES HERE">
    <img style="border:5px solid red" src="http://budeny.smugmug.com/2015/Snow-Time/i-8P9QfHD/0/S/EP508987_LR-S.jpg[/IMG]

    PHP:
    <img style="border:3px double black" src="URL FOR IMAGE GOES HERE">
    <img style="border:3px double black" src="http://budeny.smugmug.com/2015/Snow-Time/i-8P9QfHD/0/S/EP508987_LR-S.jpg[/IMG]

    Somewhere between Dave's Seascape 1 and the first image from budeny would be good, I think. More than one pixel, less than Dave's border. But that's just me :)

    I like it!

    But I'm seeing:

    {img src="http://budeny.smugmug.com/2015/Snow-Time/i-8P9QfHD/0/S/EP508987_LR-S.jpg" style="border: 1px solid black; width: 400px; height: 300px;"></img}

    (<> replaced with{} to show text)

    I'm a total noob. Please explain.
