Question How Do I Create This Effect?
1: How do I most simply create this classic effect from a regular photographic image (this example is the Olympus in-camera "Punk" filter)?

I can take an image with Colors>Threshold and quickly accomplish the the hardedge effect in B&W, but how do I do it with a color of my choosing instead of white?

[Image: Olympus-SZ-12-New-York-Photos-32_PUNKFILTER03.jpg]

2: How do I most easily place the finished image upon a larger field of the same color?

Thanks for any help!

For the border use Image -> canvas size. I suggest link horizontal and vertical size, percentage and set what you want. Center it and set resize layers to all.

That gives a white border. Threshold the image, then use Colors -> colorify
