If you are doing this for a website, you can do this using css and no need to do it all in photoshop.

border:2px solid;

<img class="rounded" src="myimage.jpg">

Open in new window


If you are doing this for print, you can set up automation inside of photohsop.

Which method do you prefer?

I only have CS6

You need to know how to carry out each individual step manually.
Then you need to know how to record the steps as ACTIONS.
Finally you need to automate the above in batch mode.

To add the border
Ctrl + Alt + C    (Alt Gr + C    is handier)
Choose RELATIVE & 15pix width and height and your border colour.

To round corners.
There are many tutorials available, e.g. .....

Install the free Processor Pro which is way better that the image processor included in photoshop itself (Watch the Video) ....
Learn how to record actions. (Search for how to record actions in photoshop)
You can record a sequence of actions, group them, and save them.

At the end of this process you should a group of actions saved, that will add the rounded border in one click. When you have this working use Image processor Pro to process hundred of photos >

File > Automate > Image processor Pro
Set your source and destination folders.
Set a chosen action that you have already saved (optional).
.... or use the internal image processor pro resizing.
Choose whether you want to rename photos.
and save the settings for future use.
Then RUN

Always use a different folder for the processed files and you will never mess up your original files.
