    Default Border around picture or object

    Using WEB Designer 11 Premium. Is there a way to put a line border around a picture or object I do not want to use a bevel.

    Yes. Select the photo or object then right click on any color on the screen palette of colors.

    Change the width of the outline on the Infobar > Set Line Width and edit the color in the Color Editor (Ctrl + e)

    Go a step further, create a rectangle the same size, grow it 10%, put behind, centre, soft-group and colour and tweak to what you want.

    Or

    Put a Glow Shadow on the image, remove the blur and transparency. and again colour.

    Or

    Clone the image, grow by 20%, put behind, add a Contone Light Colour, flip and apply a high count Blend.

    Or

    Apply a small Feather then go 3D to form a picture frame.

    Or

    Clone the image. Use the Fill tool to set to Flat fill. It defaults to Black. Set it to white & Ctrl+Shift+B to send it behind the photo. Give it a 'x' pixel 'inset path' contour. Select both / Soft-group.

    Egg, I always forget using clone and flat fill is a cleaner way to replicate a complex shape's profile. It also saves time converting to editable shapes.

    Or apply a Contour. Though this can add a few steps. Adding an Outline is still the simplest and most direct. And if needs be the outline can be on a duplicate shape, converted to shape and any sort of fill applied.

    Gary That's just what I wanted, many thanks. I could not have asked for more solutions. How do other see that I have solved the problem without replying to each individually.

    Now I can produce border as I want it, how do I remove a bevel that I previously put on an image.

    Selected the beveled object with the Bevel Tool and from the dropdown list top left of the screen select NONE.
