The Quickest Simplest Easiest Way to Put Colored Borders/Frames Around Your Photos in Your Active Rain Blog

I know that there are lot of photo editing sites out there and there are innumerable softwares that everyone has... most of us mutiple ones.. 

BUT if you really just want a border around your image.. maybe a colored border, maybe a thin border, maybe a wide border.. here's the trick:

Assuming everyone knows how to upload an image from their computer:

By clicking on the little tree icon... 








After selecting your image and clicking on upload, click on the Appearance tab.













You will put a number into the Border input field. 







  I have always assumed that meant the number of pixels for the width of the border.  Inserting a 2 will give you this:












 5 will give you this:

 10 :


And 100:

Now if you want to change the color of your border/frame into... let's say tan.   

YOu simply change the substitute the word tan for the word black in the Style field:
















 Or how about "beige" 


The one color that I have not been able to obtain is a nice dark brown.. it always comes out looking more red than brown.. 

There you have it. !

I also use this feature to make a "white" border which keeps my words from hitting the picture's edge.

I saw it too last night and went on my older posts and began to play.  I learned how to do it and it makes so much difference.

Thank you!  I love to learn new things and had no idea the color border was an option.  Now I need to learn more about picture placement.
