Chris I know that you’ve probably talked about this somewhere, but I just haven’t found it.

What I want to do is to put a border around my pictures in my blog.

I know that you can do this individually in Picasa, but is there a way to do a batch group of pictures with the same style border and THEN send them up to Google+ albums for ultimate insertion into my blog?

Thanks.

hmmm … Usually, the way pictures get their borders in Blogger is because of the Blogger template. For example, if you go to my Blog you’ll see a small white border around every picture. I don’t do that – it’s part of the Template that Blogger applies. If you go in to customize Template, then click Advanced at the left, you will see options for images. Play with those and you’ll be setting borders for all the pictures in your blog.

Here’s a video on editing your template:

Chris I see where you’re leading me up until I get to the “Advanced” tab.   Once I click on it I do not have an “Images” selection.  I’m using the Picture Window template with optimizations I’ve added.  I look at other “stock” templates and I do see the “Images” selection under the “Advanced” tab.     ?????

You’re right … I see that the Picture Window template does not have the image border option. You need to either pick another template or add the css code yourself. It’s not as bad as it sounds. When you get to the Advanced tab, you’ll see “Add custom CSS” at the bottom of the list.  Here is reference material on what you can do with css in blogger: https://support.google.com/blo…..1954?hl=en

copy this and paste it in – then make your adjustments.

.post img
{
border:3px solid black;
border-radius:10px;
padding: 10px;
}
