Adding boundaries around your photos is a great way to give them a little extra feeling. Google Docs has a set of built-in capabilities to add borders and while they're not as sophisticated as the options offered in something like Office, they do the job.
Adding borders around images in Google Docs
To Add a border around an image, continue and open Google Doc containing the image. If you have not entered your image anyway, go over to the "Insert" tab, select "Image" and then select the option to find your image.
After you insert the image, you may need to resize it. To do this, select the image and then take the handle on a corner. Drag to resize.
On the toolbar, you see three separate interface tools. They are Border Color (1), Border Weight (2) and Border Dash (3).
Continue and select "Border color" first. Once selected, select a color you want from the drop-down menu. In this example, we will go with a simple black.
Once you have chosen your color, you will notice that a very thin border appears around your image.
Looks good so far! To adjust the border thickness, select the "Border Weight" icon. By default, the limit has a 2pt width. We choose 12pt for this example.
The changes are now beginning to take effect.
If you want something other than a solid border, click the "Border dash" icon and then select one of the two other options from the drop-down menu. We choose the dotted interface.
Now your image border should look like this.
Unfortunately, the border options are a little limited. Hopefully, Google Docs will expand its feature set in the near future.
