Caravaggio,
I'm not sure if this is what you need. This is a 1px outer glow, layer style.

Re: less than one pixel stroke?

Can you post one of your thumbs?

The attached thumbnail has a one pixel stroke applied to the border. The opacity of the stroke was lowered. The stroke was applied after the image was resized.

Der W is right - Less than one pixel would only be 0 pixels. I've had a play with your thumbnail in PS, tried upsizing it then adding a border then downsizing it but it just came out exactly like yours. It seems it's impossible to split a pixel

As for your workflow it's about the same way i'd do it if the height width ratios are different. if they were the same i'd just go image>image size and type the new size.

Re: less than one pixel stroke?

Here's an idea - how about losing the border and using the image to fill up the entire thumbnail?

Thank you Kevin. I do think your thumbnail looks a lot nicer than mine. I was never so creative with my thumbnails as they are so tiny. I will give it a try.

Thanks Caravaggio - i think it's a good way of displaying a thumbnail against any background, and you can read the product label too - if you're working on an e-commerce site this can only be a good thing
