Have a look at Photo Frame Pro (external link) from OnOne. Works in both Photoshop and Lightroom. The possibilities are endless in what you can do with creative edging for your images.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

I tried "Print Module" and was able to place a border around the image. However, does it only work if you're printing the photo or can you "save the image with the border? After I placed a border around the image I selected "save" but it just saved the picture without the border. Am I missing something? Thx.

Download the LR/mogrify plugin.

This will give you the ability to add numerous borders, both internal and external, when exporting to .jpg.

I started a thread sometime ago with an initial example HERE?

At the bottom of the right-hand panel in the Print Module, select "Print to JPEG."
