Border plugin that adds instead of covering?

Recommended Posts

Plugins cannot extend the size of the canvas. They are forced to work entirely within the current canvas bounds.

The usual work-around is to make your canvas larger by a percentage amount (Image > Resize...) and anchor the original to the center of the enlarged size. An enlargement of say 110% will give you 5% wide strips around the image where you can create your frame.

To make it even quicker, if you want a solid color, you can choose a color as secondary and Paint.NET will fill the new area with that color on the "background" layer.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
