Do you mean a frame? If so, you can just upload the photo to picmonkey for one, then add a frame, then save it to your computer. Then you can upload it to AR from there. I just put a border/frame around this Pug using picmonkey. It took me about 1 minute.pug framed

In your blog or just in general?

Within your blog you can put it inside a table and expand the edges.

A photo in general can have a border added with several of the photo editing sites and programs.

Here is an example of it inside a table

Obviously can't do it like we used to now when adding pics. I just no longer do it as HTML is just to hard to remember off hand.

Click on the photo then on you blog editor bar, top row left is a Format button. Click on the Image Border. This will add 1 pixel border with a 1 pixel margin. To make it bigger open up the HTML <> and find the image and the border description and change it. I usually make mine at least 4px for the border and 2-3 for the margin. Then click ok.

It depends on where the picture is.  For example, you can purchase a nice matte border at a framing store / art gallery / photo store etc. and insert the border and physical picture in into a nice frame.

You can design a border in your favourite design application and superimpose it over a digital photo.

You can use a third party website to insert a border over your photo.

You can use CSS or HTML coding to do this as well.

I run all my photos through Ipiccy (free online photo editor) before putting them out into the world.  I pretty much always add a 2-part frame --- an inner white frame and an outer thin black line.  Colors and thickness can all be tweaked.

Unfortunately you have to create a picture first and after than post in here. I use Canva and picmonkey, Instagram also offers some great filters and frames.

For most of our graphs (PNG images) in our Market Reports, I establish a Div (Tables are frowned on these days) and using in-line CSS establish a Background color (AR won't let us put an image as a background in a Div); then position the image within the Div.  Once the in-line style for the Div is set, you can re-use it many times to have a consistent image border from one blog post to the next.

www.W3Schools.com is agreat coding resource to learn how this coding works.
