How can I put a white background around any of my photos on the document window?

Joe,

If I understand your question, that is something you do in your Operating System. What version of Windows are you using?

Or, Joe, If I DO understand what you’re after:

Tap the "D" key to set your foreground and background colors to default.

Go to Image—»Canvas Size… and add to your present width and height dimensions. The amount you add will expand your canvas according to how you have set the 3 X 3 matrix in the Canvas Size dialogue window.

Burton,
I have 7.0.1. I just found a way to do what I wanted by expanding the dimensions of my photo in Image—>>Canvas Size then filling this frame with white( thanks, PHOSPHOR! ). BUT I recall I had an easier way of doing this in 6.0 by merely dragging the corner of my photo which automatically created a white border around my photo. How did I do that and how can I do it in 7.0.1?

Try setting your foreground color to white then increase the image dimensions by opening your crop tool and dragging your crop margins to the desired dimensions outside of your image. Works great!

Uses background color, actuallly, not foreground.
Expand your frame around the pic first so you can see what you’re doing.
