    You can always create a selection using the rectangle tool and then go to "Edit -> Stroke"

    If your whole ad is on one layer you can do "select all" and then stroke the selection.

    Hope this helps.

    Use the marquee tool to select the area inside (the area you want to be visible), then Select>Inverse (or just hit cmd-shift-I) and fill that area with whatever color border you want. That's usually how I do it when using just photoshop.

    Is that what you're looking for?
