    Actions Photoboard action

    Hi, I've searched the forums without success so apologies of this has been asked before. I'd like to create a frame round my pictures that mimics the 3D appearance of a card mounting board similar to the one that you would mount the photograph under glass. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance Alun
