There is also a border effect in the effects browser.

You could use the Shapes generator and deselect the Fill colour.


Then resize and reshape it to fit around your picture.

Or Effects>Stylize>Frame


Contains a dozen different styles.


You can use the Transform controls to resize and reposition it etc.
