How to add borders to photos

  1. Start with inspiration

    We hook you up with thousands of professionally designed templates so you’re never starting from a blank canvas. Search by platform, task, aesthetic, mood, or color to have fresh inspiration at your fingertips. Once you find a graphic to start from, just tap or click to open the document in the editor.

  2. Customize your canvas

    There are lots of ways to personalize your design. Change up the copy and font. Sub out the imagery with your own photos. Or browse from thousands of free images right in Spark. Spend as little or as much time as you want making the graphic your own. With a premium plan, you can even auto-apply your brand logo, colors, and fonts so you’re always #onbrand.

  3. Add a border using icons

    Tap or click on the “+” button to select from Spark’s extensive library of icons. Type in search terms such as “border” or “rectangle” or another keyword that relates to your design. Drop in the icon, adjust the size, and switch up the color to match your mood.

  4. Add a border using images

    Tap or click on the “+” button to add an image from your own library, or from Spark’s stock photo gallery. Pin the photo to the background, then add an opaque icon shape or text box on top, which uses the negative space to turn the image into a border!

  5. Add a border with text shapes

    There are a handful of creative text shapes available for your use, many of which feature borders! Once you add text to your design, choose the “Shape” option and scroll thru to find the one that best fits your design. Customize your color, and adjust the shape if necessary by formatting the text.

  6. Explore your own ways of creating a border

    Spark encourages thinking outside of the box, and provides you with the tools to do so. Explore the many ways you can use shapes, colors, text, icons, and premade options to create the perfect border for your design.

  7. Save your design and share it with your audience

    Instantly download a copy of your design to share on your social channels or print out at home. You can also invite others to collaborate with you if you need extra hands on deck. And, Spark always saves your projects, so you can revisit and rework it anytime you like on your mobile or desktop device.
