Click on thumbnailed images to enlarge

I'll be using this:

1.) Now open your picture.

2.) Select the rectangular marquee tool.

3.) Then select an area of the picture, leave just enough room for the fade to show.

4.) Then right click the image and click feather.

5.) Type 9. (You can go higher just more rounder fade)
Then click okay.

6.) Then press and hold CTRL SHIFT and I.
Now the area you originally selected and the border of the image should be selected.

(There should be two different selections)
Or another way is to go to select, then inverse.

7.) Then just simply press Delete (DEL) on your keyboard.
(If you want more fade, simply keep pressing Delete (DEL) until you get your desired fade).

Then your have a faded boarder!
