    GIMP Help!

    Evening everyone.

    Recently started using GIMP for editing photos. VERY new to it all. I want to trim the bottom off a photo. I've managed to get rid of thepart I want, but the canvas is remaining at the original size. How do I resize the canvas? Online help doesn't work for me so am having to ask here!

    Thanks!

    Ok, resurrecting an old thread here, but only because it's a bit of a waste creating a new one.

    How do I add a border to photos using GIMP? A black or white one will do.

    Thanks again!

    Make a selection around the image where you want the inner edge to be,
    Invert selection,
    fill selection !
