There has to be an easier way to do this (and one that lends itself to building an action)... I want build an action to add a consistantly sized frame similar to the photo below. What I've been doing is using the image->canvas size feature and adding ~10 pixels to the width and ~60 pixels to the height. However, this requires that I eyeball the top edge and crop it. Is there some way to specify the number of pixels to add to the canvas to each side indepedently rather than just width and height?

Next I take the type tool and type in the "RONIN" logo but I also have to just center and position this by eyeballing it. Is there an easier way to center this and one that will lend itself well to being used in an action so that it will work consistantly with both portraith and landscape images? Thanks.



*edit* I just realized this doesn't show up so well on the forum but there's a white border of around ~5 pixels on the top, right, and left sides and around ~20-30 pixels along the bottom edge.

Hmmmm...seems to me that I was just reading about how to do that last night. I have a book that is dedicated to nothing but tips and tricks for Photoshop. I'll review it again tonight and see if I can find an answer for you unless someone else provides you with one before then.

Good day!

Mike

If you know how to use Actions...do this...

- Open an image
- Start a new action
- select image>canvas size
- Make sure that "Relative" is checked
- Select the top center arrow
- Type "10px" on WITH
- Type "20px" on HEIGHT
- Click OK
- Go back to image>Canvas size
- Select the bottom center arrow
- Type "5px" on HEIGHT
- Click OK

Now those are the actions for the white border. As far as the text

- Select the Type Tool
- Make it Center Justified
- Type ROBIN
- Unlock the background Layer
- Link the background layer and the Text Layer
- Select the MOVE tool click on the background layer to select it
- Go to the top where you see the Tool options and U will have the alingments there to center the text with the background layer.

Any questions email me.
