Hi,

can I use SC to add a THICK white border around an image? Say half an inch thick? I only know about the option to add a very thin border.

I just tried the 'Border for Image' option, on the right-side toolbar in SC, and selected 'Simple Border Around Image - Outside (resize)', and then repeat 10 to 25 times, should give your nice thick border. Unfortunately there's no keyboard shortcut for that option (or I just didn't find it).

Hm, I found Special Effect Options/ Quick Borders, but it only allows a Width of 9 pixels to be entered, and manually modifying the ini file gets it reset to 9 on startup :'(

Thank you. Wow, that option is well hidden! :) Maybe it should be renamed "Resize Image/Add Border"?

It's easy to overlook the color options there when it's set to white. ;)
