    Is there a way to put edges around a pic in photoshop without using any
    other programs?

    Please define "edges." If you wish to create the effect of the image being,
    say painted onto a substrate with a dry brush effect, look like a Polaroid
    transfer, or some similar operation, the answer is yes. All you need to do is
    create a Layer Mask for your image Layer (might need to change it from
    Background [in italics] and create a new Layer below it. Use the Layer Mask to
    create the effect on the edges of the image. Save_As PSD for later work, then
    Flatten Image and Save_As, say a JPG for import into WMM. You should size the
    image and modify the rez to match the motion segment that you are workin on.

    If this is not what you mean, then sorry.

  3. Your title refers to using PS images in Movier Maker, but your question
    asks whether you can do 'edges' in PS, which is probably the most
    powerful image manipulation program ever conceived.. I am confused.
    What *sort* of edges? (one colour, fancy frames)? What has Movie Maker
    got to do with it?

    If all you want is a border around your image, here's one way..
    -Select Image, Canvas Size, change the units to pixels.
    -Increase the numbers in the width and height boxes appropriately, eg
    if it is 1200 wide and 900 high, try changing the numbers to 1230 and
    -Use the dropdown to select the 'Canvas extension color'
