crop your headshot to 7.5 x 8.45. Open a blank file and make it an 8x10 at
whatever resolution you want, I usually use 300 dpi cause thats all most
printers really recognize even if it says 1440x2880.

re-res your headshot file to match your blank page so it should now say 7.5
x 8.45 at 300 pdi, now drag it to the new blank file and position it. add
your type at the bottom. flatten.

before you flatten you could hit the f/x link at the bottom of your layer's
pallet and give it a beveled edge or a stroked edge which will put a thin
red (or other color) line around the image area, way cool.

You could just use the image resize options. First size the image down by
whatever border width amount you want then just manipulate the canvas size
to the finished size you want. Just be sure to set the canvas color first by
selecting the desired background color. You can then add text, etc..

Shoot'em up, bordered or not, Agfa, Fuji, Kodak and all the rest will love
you for it!!

To the original poster, increase the canvas size of the image. Take a
look at how to do that in the manual; its on one of the PS menus,
something like Image/Canvas Size... to get even borders all around,
click the middle box in the image that is presented in the dialog box
that pops up.

To Zeitgeist, you should know that your statement above is actually
incorrect. The resolution of a digital image and the resolution with
which an inkjet prints are two different things. So there's actually a
better reason for not creating digital images over 300 dpi.

If your picture is smaller than the 8x10 canvas, the white area is the
border. In the tool selection area, select the 'T' for text. You can then
place the text box anywhere, on the white border or even on the picture
itself. Change font size and color as desired.
