Add border to images - tutorial

Post by Fabrice »

how to add a border to a picture and add a text on that border ?

Light Image Resizer contains option to add a border but you can't move the watermark to this border ( adding a text over it )

I found a trick still using Light Image Resizer

you need to know your current picture and extend it

the idea is to make a new profile where you center the current image and so you fill the new space with the selected color

(1) for example , resize with % to 110% ( or fix a size larger than the original file ) (2)

(3) change the resize mode to "center" it will put the original photo in the center of the new target, the empty space will create the border

(4) change the color to define the border color


Next it will be the "usual" watermark function

( 5 ) click on the tab "effects"
( 6 ) tick the "integrate watermark"
( 7 ) click "watermark" button

it will open the new dialog


adjust the size of the text, the position, a spacing to make sure you don't stick it on the edge of the image

at any time you can use the "preview"

have fun !
