Common Questions about photo borders

Overview

Photo borders allow you to add decorative designs around the edges of your online photos. Borders are a great addition to photos you plan to print, or to just add a nice touch when sharing your online photos with friends. Add a basic black or white border for everyday photos or add a seasonal border for a special occasion or holiday.

You can add a border to a single photo, add the same border to every photo in an album, or add different borders to each photo in an album. Whenever you add a border to a photo, you're working on a copy. The original, unbordered photo remains will remain in your album until you choose to delete it. You can border landscape and portrait photos - our designs will adapt to either photo style.

We offer a variety of borders for your photos:

Studio Includes basic black and white borders as well as special effects like torn edges, soft fade and shapes

Check back often because we add more border designs all the time!

Borders are free. There is no charge for using borders and there is no extra charge when ordering prints of your bordered photos. And like our everyday storage, there is no limit to the number of bordered photos you can store in your Snapfish account.



How to add borders to your photos

Step 1: Choose your photo(s)
Select the album that contains the photo(s) you want to border, and click 'Edit and organise' in the menu on the right. Next click 'Add borders' within that menu. Then choose one or more photos from that album. After selecting your album or photos, be sure to click the 'Choose' button to continue. You can border one photo or several photos at a time.

Step 2: Choose your borders
While viewing your photo, click on a category tab on the right side of the page. Then click on a border design to preview it on your photo. Keep clicking on the border designs until you find one that you like. To remove a border from your photo, click the 'Remove border' link near the bottom of the page.

Once you have finalized the border for your photo, you can finish or continue adding borders to the other photos in your album. To finish and border just the one photo, click the 'Done adding borders' button.

To add borders to more photos, click the 'Next' and 'Previous' buttons above the photo to browse through your album. While viewing each photo, repeat the steps of choosing a category, and then selecting a border design. To use the same border on every photo in your album, click the 'Add border to all photos' checkbox near the bottom of the page.

After you have finished adding borders to your photos, click the 'Done adding borders' button at the top or bottom of the page. This will save the border changes you made to each photo. Remember, whenever you add a border to a photo, you are working on a copy. The original, unbordered photo(s) remain in your album until you choose to delete them.

To exit the add border process without making any changes to your photos, click the 'Cancel' button at anytime.



Print, share or download your bordered photos

After adding borders to your photos, you can order prints in 10x15 cms, 12.5x17.5 cms, 20x25 cms and 20x30 cms. You can also share your new bordered photo or album with friends. To get started, click 'Share photos' from the menu on the right.



Common Questions about photo borders

Is there a cost for adding borders to my photos?
Borders are absolutely free. There is no charge for using borders and there is no extra charge when ordering prints of your bordered photos. And like our everyday storage, there is no limit to the number of bordered photos you can store in your Snapfish account.

When I share bordered photos, do my friends see the borders? Can they order prints of my bordered photos?
Yes, your bordered photos will appear the same to your friends. And if they would like, they can also order prints of your bordered photos. Please note that your friends cannot change your borders or any aspect of your shared album(s). As the owner, you are the only one permitted to make changes to your albums.

How do I add the same border to every photo in an album?
When adding a border to a photo, click the 'Add border to all photos' checkbox near the bottom of the page. This will apply the same border design to every photo in your album. Be sure to click the 'Done adding borders' button to confirm your changes.

Can I use a different border on each photo in an album?
Yes, you can add a different border to each photo in your album. To get started, click the 'Edit and organise' button and then the 'Add borders' button on the right hand toolbar. To add borders to each photo in the album, click the 'Next' and 'Previous' buttons above the photo to browse through your album. While viewing each photo, repeat the steps of choosing a category, and then selecting a border design. When you are done adding borders, click the 'Done adding borders' button to confirm your changes.

Will my photo be cropped when I add a border? Will it be cropped when I order prints?
Our borders are designed in a 2:3 aspect ratio, which are best suited to a 4x6 photo. Many digital camera photos are in a 3:4 aspect ratio, so it is likely that a portion of the top and bottom of your photo will be trimmed to accommodate the border.

When you order a print of a bordered photo, we will adjust the proportions of the border for the print size you choose. We do this so that the border will not be cropped irregularly during the printing process. However, we recommend using the 'Print preview' feature in the shopping cart to see how your photo within the border itself may be cropped. To use print preview, click the 'Print preview' link beneath the photo in your shopping cart to see how your photo will print at different sizes (15x10 cms, 12.5x17.5 cms, 20x25 cms and 20x30 cms).
