I need so help. I’m working on a photo that I just cropped, and now want to add a colored border. The problem is when I open the Canvas Size box; the “Canvas Extension Color” at the bottom is grayed out. I can’t change the additional canvas color. The additional canvas is transparent. I’m not sure what I did to make this happen because I’ve been able to it before.
Any help?

The canvas extension color can only be chosen when you're working on the 'background' layer (the base layer that is locked by ps itself). However if you don't have a backgroundlayer to begin with, or you're on another layer, just do the canvas resizing. The added area will be transparant. Just create a new layer beneath the others and fill it with the color of your choice.. and there is your border.

Hope this helps..
