Macro Monday: Shelby’s Bitmap Border Creator

February 2, 2009

After all of the traveling for the cruise, trade shows and sporting events the past few weeks, I can finally settle back into my daily routine and get back to work. Sometimes work is fun and sometimes it is really tedious. This is especially true when you have to repeat the same process over and over. Shelby’s Bitmap Border Creator can relieve the tedium if you have a number of bitmaps in your file and need a border around them. Just select the bitmaps that need a border and run this macro. By default, it creates a 2 point border around every selected bitmap. But a really cool feature is that the borders stay selected so you can go into the Outline Pen dialog box and change them to whatever you like. Oh yea, it is a free download!
