Click on thumbnailed images to enlarge

lol i put this on my myspace, that's why it says tutorial by 323115066 :)

turn this:

into this:

go file > new.
make it 2x2 pixels.
zoom in all the way.
get pencil tool and make a checkboard thing:

go edit > define pattern.
name it whatever you want.
get your image that you want to put the border around.
if it has more than one layer go layer > flatten image.
double click on the picture of the layer on the layer palette:

click ok.
it should now say layer 0.
go layer > layer style > stroke.
change fill type to pattern, pick the pattern you made (the checkerboard thing) and click okay.

ohsodopey. if no one has helped you....try going to your "Edit" drop down menu. Stroke might be under there.
