    Default Overlapping pictures

    I want to overlap a photo onto another - this is simply to extend the borders of the original picture on all sides so that it fits on a website - at present it's "cropped" with a black border because it doesn't fill the full frame.

    If I use a white background then there's no problem but I want to use a black background!

    I can't simply enlarge the picture as this distorts the image.

    Is there free software that i can use to extend the borders of my pics - I'm not a techno geek so has to be basic. Ideally a software where I can simply drag a duplicate across the original and save the the pic - something simple and stress free? TIA

    Is the current border just plain black and you want to make that border 'wider and longer' with just black too?

    It’s a black background and frame - because the picture doesn’t fit the frame, what doesn’t fit the frame is shaded black, if that makes sense?

    I need to extend the picture I want to use so it fits the frame - I can’t enlarge it as it blurs so I was thinking it’s a simple case of taking the picture and overlapping another onto it to extend the background
