    One method...

    Assuming you have your image already open, make a new layer. Ctrl+A, Select > Modify > Border. Chose a value of 1. From there you can repeat the last step but instead of border chose expand. From there you can decide on the overall size.

    it doesn't show the border. what i meant actually was how to show a visible border around the image.

    I find it easy to make borders using the "contract" command. Say you make a rectangle for your image, fill it with what color you want the border to be, then while the layer is still selected, go to Select-->Modify-->Contract. Enter 2 pixels as that is the most common border width. Then make a new layer and make your image! Let me know if this works/is what you are asking for.

    What do you mean by a 'visible border' ? Once you've got your selection the idea is you just fill it (Alt+Backspace) with whatever colour you want.

    The only thing I don't like about kev...'s method is that you end up fitting the image to the border instead of the border to the actual image.
