Add borders to side of image


I have a square image that I am looking to turn into a landscape sized image by adding solid black borders to the left and right of the image (optionally with a fade to white type gradient). I know this is a really simple thing to do, but I don't know where to start.

I don't have any image software on my PC, other than Picasa. I tried looking at PicMonkey online but it didn't seem to do what I wanted.

Can someone give me some simple steps to accomplish this?

There you go: SplashUp - Online Image Editor -Jump Right in

Splashup, formerly Fauxto, is a powerful editing tool and photo manager. With the features professionals use and novices want, it's easy to use, works in real-time and allows you to edit many images at once. Splashup runs in all browsers, integrates seamlessly with top photo-sharing sites, and even has its own file format so you can save your work in progress.

Simple way to add border

  • Open you image in the editor.
  • Make a new empty background layer (or copy the image to a new layer)
  • Increase the canvas size of the bottom layer as much as you require, use this new area to make a border for your image.
