Applying a Border to a Picture

After you insert a picture, you can add and modify the picture border by changing individual outline formatting using the the Colors, Weights, and Fills panel on the Formatting Palette on the Toolbox. The Colors, Weights, and Fills panel provides options to add a border, select a border color, and change border width and style. You can try different border combinations to find the one you want. If you don’t care for the results, you can use undo to remove it.
