simple borders question - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Hi, I've been looking for a way to add a simple black borders to the images .. the simplest way seems to be to Select\All\Modify\Border and then Edit\Fill ... but I'm getting borders with inner shadows (or bevels or whatever is it) and can't find the way how to get rid of that...

    Default simple borders question

    Hi,

    I've been looking for a way to add a simple black borders to the images ..
    the simplest way seems to be to Select\All\Modify\Border and then Edit\Fill
    ... but I'm getting borders with inner shadows (or bevels or whatever is it)
    and can't find the way how to get rid of that... I want just plain black
    border x pixels wide..

    I tried with canvas resizing and other ways, but everything is way too many
    clicks, and in case of manual selection inaccurate. I even bought Photoshop
    Elements2 book from P.Andrews (FocalPress), can't find anything. If is has
    something to do with layer styles, then how I would default the fill command
    to be without that inner shadow? I can't find out...

    Just plain border like in PaintShopPro7 for instance ...

    Can anyone help?
    thx
    Dave

    Set your foreground color to black. Then select/all. Then edit/stroke.
    Choose "inside" and set the pixel width. Works great for me. -- Bill.

    1. Make your rectangle

    2. You must simplify the layer (in the layer drop down menu select SIMPLIFY LAYER)

    3. Then you can choose stroke from the edit menu, (chose your line width, select inside).

    4. Done
