Question Black outline on a photo??

Hi, (again)

Another problem,

I want to give my photo a thin black outline on photoshop elements 7, can anyone help pleaaase?

the background of the photo is completely white so a thin black outline when the photo is then mounted onto another white page would be great..also how do i paste photos that ive outlined onto a new page?? They dont seem to just "copy and paste"..

thanks a lot

Use ctrl A to select the picture. Then edit-stroke, select the pixel width and color. Stroke location should be inside.

You could use a stroke layer style or...
Use the rectangle marque tool to select an area just inside the print, then invert the selection and fill it with black or...
Increase the canvas size by pixels and use a black background.
