This might be a dumb question but I need some help. I have a photo of a race car I took and on the left side i caught a bystanders arm on right a cone. ( this was at the drag races ). If I crop using Photoshop CS2 I can geta great shot only problem is it will not fit as an 8x10. If I use the crop tool in CS2 and do an 8x10 using the preset i get some of the offending arm in the photo. I thought if i could use the photo as is and add a boarder to cover the ofending parts I could fit just want i want in the frame. Does this sound possible or is there a better way thanks

Yes, crop exactly how you want, reduce the pic using the same aspect ratio in "image size" in PS by reducing the longest size below 10 (say 9.5), then increase the canvas size to 8x10 and add a stroke line or bevel just outside the pic to finish it nicely. I do this all the time and clients like it. I never have to crop something I don't want to to get the pic the size of the frame they want.

First thing I would do is try to clone out the arm, or cone or both. Can you post the shot along with a 100% crop of the area so everyone can take a stab at it?

1.open in photoshop
2.crop file as needed if any
3.set background color to desired border color
4. go to image>canvas size
---- then switch setting from inches or whatever yours is set on to percent then add to it. 120%-140% is usually good enough 120 being thin border and 140 being a bit thicker
5.rezise to desired size and save.


ps: you could create an photoshop action to do this automatically as well for batch production.

Another way to do a simple color border is to add a layer and stroke.
-Open Image
-Layer - New Layer
-CTRL A to select it
-Edit / Stroke
-Select color and number of pixels.
(I used 10 px for yours)
(Sorry had to reduce the quality a bit to get it to upload) :oops:
