    i go into photoshop
    increase the canvas size while anchoring the center of the picture
    use the paint bucket tool to fill in the new area

    dunno if there's a macro or shortcut or what not for that...works for me :p

    Open photo
    Select All (ctrl +A)
    Select > Modify > Borders (set pixel length from edge)
    Select > Modify > Expand (set to half of your borders number)
    Fill selection with black.

    I usually put an ad out in the local paper to rent one of my extra rooms and then when they here and paying the rent I gather them into a circle and put the photo on the floor in the middle of them. :rofl:

    Jk, but borders can be done in a number of ways. I like a double one and would expand the canvas by about 10 pixels on all sides then fill it with black, then do a stroke around the photo of about 2-4 pixels in white. That is when I do them, but I dont normally do it.

    hit d to get back to default black and white.
    increase canvas size by whatever you want.
    switch the default black and white.
    increase canvas size once again.

    substitute black and white for whatever color borders you want.

    I just use the crop tool and go beyond the picture. Easier and plus you can see how big the border will be. It will be whichever color is set as your background color. Also, on macs if you hold down the alt/option key, the border will be even on both sides.
