photo border help

I am trying to add photo borders on my pages. I am following the instructions that are listed on the FAQs. However the borders do not seem to show up. I even go back to the palette page and the border is highlighted but there is nothing around my photos. What am I doing wrong?

actually I see borders on some of my photos but not all.. are there certain page layouts that do not allow borders. I don’t understand why some of my single photo pages have borders but others do not

You can’t have a border on a photo that goes right up to the edge of the page, could that be the problem?

Thanks Tony. You are correct, If an images touches the edge of the page, or “bleeds” in book design speak, it cannot have a border. This is because all pages are trimmed slightly (by about 1/8th inch) on all sides so the borders might be trimmed as well. If you’d like to use borders choose a layout that offers some margin or space between it and the edge of the page.
cheers, chad
