My fav method:
*** Print Setup -> Select/create a dummy printer with 0 margins. Add 4x6, 5x7" with 0 margins. (Existing printers don't allow me to have 0 margin, so it adds extra margin as in Fig1)
Image settings on right panel
select Stroke (color and size)
Print Job -> Save as JPEG
Just adding a solid color border I don't need special border from photoshop (as in 2 links above)
Pic on the left: Using Method 1. Note the extra stuff outside the border
Pic on the right: Using Method 1 with dummy printer that allows 0 margin
- I can't export as exact 800x600. My print job is specified by paper size + dpi.
To have 800px for web-posting with border, use 6 inch * 300px/inch = 1800 px. 800px/6in = 133px/inch.
*** Always use 300dpi for actual printing.
2) Print Module with identity plate
Both methods above are the same. (using photoshop border in lightroom print module)
Since border=vignette here, this is useless if I want to add a separate vignette unless I can stack different vignettes.
TODO: See if I can stack presets for the same adjustment. I think no.
|Using Method 3) Vignetting. Perfect black border, but no vignetting|
I wish I don't have to go thru Print menu. I wish adding border is a preset and can be exported together in library module.
