I have looked all over the "Build" and "Design" tabs and can't find how to add a border around an image. Anyone know? Thank you -- Susie

Thanks for coming back to the community. I believe this video should help walk you through a number of edits that you can make on your images, including adding borders.
The video addresses a frame around a photo but not a border for a mailing. For example, I want to use a green border in the same shade as one of our agency's two main colors. I'd like this to border the entire email. The only thing I can find online are old instructions that don't/can't work.
Thanks for asking about adding a border! While there isn't a way to add a border to an existing email campaign, you can start out with an email template that already includes a border. In the Templates area, look for email templates with a border:
Click Design and then click the color square for Buttons & Dividers to change the color of the existing border:
If you're already using an email template that doesn't include a border, you can change the outer or inner background color or even add a background pattern to create a soft outline:
I want to do this too, and haven't found the solution. Can someone explain or provide a link? The only thing I find is the frames, and those are not the simple solid line border I need. This should be a simple feature you can add, IMO.
One more reason you need to provide HTML access if you are not going to provide basic features like this.
But maybe there IS a way to do it that I just haven't found???
Hi @JulieL34. The only way to add a border to an image within Constant Contact is to use the frames provided in the image editor. I apologize if there isn't one in the editor that fits your needs (such as the simple line) but I'll make sure to track this feedback in your account. In the meantime, you are free to use other image editing tools that can create this border for you.
