If the print was made in an enlarger, then I would tend to agree with you. If it was made by electronic means, then I believe borders and effects can be added, but I don't have any experience of that kind of work. Why don't you give it a try, if you have access to darkroom facilities. It can be good fun devising a method to produce the border, and then trying it out. That is what I like about B&W darkroom work. There are lots of techniques and effects you can use to alter the look of your images, and they don't need to involve expensive tools or materials. If you have an idea to create a particular look, try it. If it works, great, or if not, try something else. Alex
