Last week I showed you how to add keylines to your greeting cards or other images. This week I’m showing you an easy soft white border. Your printers generally do not print within 1/4″ of the edge, so this border takes away any issue with that!
Use the Rectangular Marquee tool (M) and type 10 px in the Feather box on the top toolbar. This will soften the edge and give you rounded corners. This is for a 5×7… if your image is much larger you will need to feather more. Draw a box within 1/2″ of the edge as shown by the marching ants below.
Now Cmd/Ctrl Shift I to invert your selection so just the border is selected. Edit > Fill > White 100%. You will see the feathered edge towards the center. Ctrl D to deselect the box. You can make a wider border if you like.
