Changing the elements of a digital image is possible with the use of Adobe Photoshop, a digital-imaging application. Manipulating and retouching photos, adding shadows and filling objects with color are just a few of the tasks Photoshop can accomplish. Sometimes spicing up text can make a document more visually appealing. Adding a simple border to text can be accomplished in just a few steps.
Launch Photoshop and open the file that you want to work with.

In the "Layers" panel, select the text layer to which you would like to add a border.
Click "Layer," "Layer Style" and "Stroke" in the application bar. This will bring up a dialogue box.

Once you have set the values you want for your border, click "OK" and the border will be added.
