    1. Get your image you want your border on.

    2. Go to Layer > Layer boundary size. You'll want to have a boundary that is about double the current size, or so. You probably won't need that much, though. Unless you're trying for a really big border.

    I usually add 100 to the width and leave the height.
    Then I ALWAYS make "X" 35 then hit center then hit Resize.

    3. Go to Layer > Transparency > Alpha to selection on your image layer. This will put a selection around your image. Then go to Selct > grow. Depending on the size of your image, and your desired results, you may have to play around with the amount for a bit. I usually start at 2 and add to that if needed. (2 is usually the best looking one.)

    4. Make a new transparent layer, and place it underneath the image layer. Select the color you want your outline to be as the foreground or background color. I chose red. Then go to edit > fill with bg/fg color, whichever has the color you want your outline to be. Then go to select > none, and there you have it!

    Hope this helps!  Grin

    Nice job

    Now I feel incredibly stupid.

    I used this for a sig I made a while back and (being the idiot I am) hand drew the white outline for the CSS pic for some characters.  Awesome Face

    Aaaaanyways, nice find!
