View Full Version : borders for an image
06-02-2005, 07:28 PM
I have a page that basically shows a bunch of images.
Is there anyway -(I guess with css) that I can put a background or a border so that it appears that the images are in a nice frame?
(the images are all the same height but not width)
Does anyone have an example of where this is done?

Could you give us a link so we understand better what you are trying to do?

hmm. I don't have it up yet...
It's just a pictures each 100 pixels wide... 4 on a row.
I just want to put a nice border around them so that it looks good.
(I don't have the border yet)

You could add a nice border using CSS, this is my preffered method for img decoration, you could have dotted solid , dif thickness, doubled, dif colors even curved or drop shadow with the right style;
try this for starters;
border:1px dotted black;
I think this is what you meant! :thumbsup:

Hi Anything to do to make it look even nicer then just a dotted border?
Anyway to make a curved border with shading??

it would have to be graphics!
as for css attributes the borders could be;
thick/ thin/ medium or any width you like;
the different borders could be different styles / colors to get some nice affects, dont forget an plainish img with loads of padding looks really good :rolleyes:

I tried doing an image as a background but it looked messed up.
Do you know of any pages that has an example of this?

left pic = css border
mid = drop shadow
right = graphic behind pic
a simple frame around the lot!(this can be decorated as above, ie dotted/outset)
hope this helps you, got view source to view code if u need too.
