Adding frames to your images is a great way to add a touch of flair. Google Docs has a number of built-in frame adding capabilities, and although they are not as sophisticated as the options in Office, they do the job.
Add frames to images in Google Docs
Add a frame around an image, open the Google document that contains the image. If you have not inserted your image yet, go to the Insert tab, choose Image, and then choose the appropriate option to find your image.
After pasting the image you may have to resize. To do this, select the image and grab the handle at any corner. Drag to resize.
The toolbar displays three separate frame tools. These are the frame color (1), the frame weight (2) and the frame line (3).
Go ahead and select "Frame Color" first. After selecting a color, select a color from the drop-down menu. In this example, we use a simple black.
When you have selected your color, you will notice that a very thin border appears around your image.
Looks so good! If you want to adjust the thickness of the border, select the Rand Weight icon. By default, the border has a width of 2 pt. We choose 12pt for this example.
The changes are now taking effect. You see your image with a black border of 12 pt.
If you want to have a border other than a solid border, click on the borderline icon and select one of the other two options from the drop-down menu. We choose the option with dotted border.
Now your picture border should look something like this.
Unfortunately the border options are somewhat limited. Hopefully, Google Docs will expand its offering in the near future.
