Default Easy way to create good looking borders in PS

I'm looking for a simple and quick way to do nice borders in PS CS3 for what I post on the web, I'm bored of just including the photo.

I don't know exactly the look I want, here was a quick idea, but basically something slick and quick as the sample took a few mins, I would like a few seconds.

Thanks,

Mark

Irfanview makes easy borders. If you want something free you can download Bordermania plug in, which can render from simple to bizarre borders and frames as you can see here:

Try ICnet software's Filters Unlimited plugin. Has a number of effects similar to your example, available with one click.

Hi Ordo. Are you saying that Bordermania will work in Irfanview? I don't use much more than that but would be nice to have some more plugins.

Frank, if you downloaded the Irfanview plugins, along with Irfanview, one of them allows the program to use the .8bf adobe plugins, so you can use most of them with Irfanview. The Filters Unlimited plugin I mentioned, works, as does Virtual Photographer.

No, sorry. Bordermania is a freeware plug-in for Photoshop.
Of course if you're willing to pay you'll find a lot more options, but pretty expensive.

beyond this, its very easy to record your own actions if what you are doing is the same every time and you don't find what you need.
