How do I add a border to my photo? I want a frame around my picture. 

You can add borders to images in BookSmart by following the steps below.

  • Borders can not be added to a Black and White Text Pocket or Trade book.
  • It is not possible to add borders to a *page* in BookSmart--only to images.


1. Open your book in BookSmart. Go to the image you want to add a border to.



2. Click anywhere on the image to make the photo tools appear. 



3. Click on the Border button.



4. Select a border option (image A).

  • You'll find even more options if you click the "More Options" button (image B).
  • You can apply the same border to every single image in your book by clicking Apply this border to all photos.

A: Border options



B: Yet more border options. With these options you can change the color of the border.



5. Review the border you've just applied. (The thin orange line on the outside of the page is not a border. It just shows where the page ends).



6. You can also click the Preview button in the lower right to view the image and border.
