Select the rectangle tool.
Set the fill to be empty.
Set the border to be the color and size that you want.
Create a layer above the layer that your bitmap sits on.
Draw the rectangle over the bitmap.

Presto you have a border!  :)

wildbrookmedia,

I forgot to tell you that the bitmap is irregularly shaped.
