Default How to make a border on Pixlr- requested by CutiePieGirl

~How too make a border on Pixlr~ (requested by CutiePieGirl)

Step 1: Use Pixlr Tools and Filters to Add a Border to Your Picture

Click the image to open in full size.Load your desired image from your computer into Pixlr online image editor. Change the image size if you need to, by using the Image -> Image Size feature.
Adjust the display size of your image so that there is plenty of space around it by moving the Navigator slider to the left.
Now, you will be adding a border around your image.
Go to Image -> Canvas size and add 10 pixels to each dimension. Click the center box to move the blue box to the center and click OK. You will now see a thin white border around your picture.
Use the Wand tool to select the white frame, and then the Flood Fill tool to fill it with
black. Use Edit -> Deselect All to remove the selection.Load your desired image from your computer into Pixlr online image editor. Change the image size if you need to, by using the Image -> Image Size feature.
Adjust the display size of your image so that there is plenty of space around it by moving the Navigator slider to the left.
Now, you will be adding a border around your image.
Go to Image -> Canvas size and add 10 pixels to each dimension. Click the center box to move the blue box to the center and click OK. You will now see a thin white border around your picture.
Use the Wand tool to select the white frame, and then the Flood Fill tool to fill it with black. Use Edit -> Deselect All to remove the "trailing ants" from your border.

Step 2: Add a Second Border to Your Pixlr Image

Click the image to open in full size.Now you will add another border to your picture. Repeat the Image -> Canvas Size, adding 20 pixels to each dimension, and again, moving the blue box to the center square.
Use the wand tool to select the white border. Now, flood fill with a bright, dominant color from your picture by clicking the black square at the bottom of the tool bar, and using the dropper to pick up a color. Flood fill the selection with this color.
With the colored border still selected, choose Filter -> Noise, and move the slider all the way to the right (400). Keep monochromatic checked.
Choose Filter -> Pixelate and change the cell size to 2. Deselect the border.

Step 4: Add a Final Border to your Pixlr Image

Click the image to open in full size.Repeat the Image -> Canvas Size, this time adding 30 pixels to each dimension, and moving the blue square to the center. Use your Wand tool to select the white border. Again, pick a color from the picture. It works well if you pick the most dominant color.
Choose Filter -> Scanlines and leave on default (40). Click OK. Select Filter -> Diffuse and leave on default (5). Click OK. Deselect the border.

Viewing and Saving Your Pixlr Image

On the Navigator, change the size back to 100% to view at the size you will see on your webpage. Save your picture, and you're done.
Experiment with the Pixlr online editor filters and tools to create all sorts of lovely borders for your pictures. You'll be glad you did, and so will your visitors.


Hope this helped! :]
