  1. For photo competition purposes, i need to put a 3 pixel white border around my images which I have been doing in Photoshop. How is this best achieved in Affinity? I have already managed to achieve this in Affinity for some landscape images which can be sized to 3 pixels smaller than the desired target of 1400 wide by 1050 high, e.g. 1397 by 1047. Then the canvas can be resized to the desired 1400 by 1050 and a white filled pixel layer put behind which then nicely provides the thin white border. I can't so far make this technique work for portrait format images. These also have to be 1400 by 1050 for projection and the non-image parts of the canvas have to be black to focus attention on the image. (I tried putting the white border round one portrait image and then transferring the layers of this image into the layers panel of a new correct size canvas but this didn't work, maybe I did it wrong?) Similar problems will occur with "letter box" format landscape images which although 1400 wide are less than 1050 high. Essentially what I'm asking is how to do Borders in Affinity Photo? Any help would be very welcome. Bail
