You do this using an embedded Style Sheet.


Here's how .....................

Go to the page where your thumbnails will be or are.

Click on Format|Style|New from toolbar

Type "img" into the "Name (Selector)" box.

Click on the Format button at the bottom

Select "Border"

Select type of border, color, and width (in pixels)

That should do it.

themroc u just need to Set a Style Property to the Image !

 Just Include this in the Image tag
style="border: 2px solid #FF00000"  it should look Something  like this ...

<img  src="Image.gif" width="19" height="19" style="border: 2px solid #FF0000">

Please alter the Border width and Change the color by changing the #FF0000 things ! hope this helps !

Cheers Jayanth

Actually folks....

I believe what is happening here is that the "border" of the image is taking on the colour which is set either in the theme or stylesheet for links.

You see, a thumbnail, which is what we are referring to here, is essentially a link to the "larger" image.  Therefore 99.9% of the time, if you don't set the border to "0" you will get a border the colour of the hyperlinks you use on the page.

That being said, either of the above suggestions should work.  I just wanted to point out what the issue probably is.
