adding stroke to placed image - Adobe Illustrator Windows

This is probably a really dumb question, but I'm not really an Illustrator user. I place an image - tiff - and I'd like to apply a stroke. No command available on right clicking (like Indesign) so I use the stroke menu window and still I can't apply a stroke to the placed image. Doh! Any clues...?...

    Simon,

    add a new stroke through the appearance palette (-> Flyout menu). Then go to Effect > Convert to shape > Rectangle. Set the desired values and create a graphic style out of it. Now you can apply strokes to placed images with a single click.
