I have set the color as white, since the image is of dark colors. Now try it. :-)

Method II

1. Open a new image, set the canvas color black ( Or the border color which want to be around the image). I have selected the image size as 2 pixels more then the picture size. In my case this is 102 X 153 in my case.
