    MS Paint seems to be able to do it just fine...

    Edit: Sorry, i should should point out how i did it. Just copy & paste the image into MS Paint and move it down & right slightly. Alternatively, opening it , expand the canvas size, select the area with the select tool and move it down and right. then just change the line thickness to the border size that you want and create a box around your image. finally, shrink the canvas size down to the black border and save it as whatever file format suits you best: <post:=530,840>post 530,840</post:>

    Foggy day at the Space Needle!

    If you don't want to change the image size, Paint also has a rectangle tool you can use to draw a border from the upper left to the lower right corner of your image. If you first click the line tool, you can set the thickness, then click the rectangle tool and use the default option (empty box).

    If you find a convenient way to do it with that other program you're trying, please post the directions in a new reply in this thread for future reference.
