how it looks in google docs

When selecting an image, there is no means of setting the width of the border around it without going into the image dialog's border tab. This newly created control would open with a list of predefined width sizes that a user can choose from, with a check next to the one that is currently selected. The last entry in the list would be a more... entry which would take a user to the border tab.

For me this sounds like a good idea for fast, easy and simple borders, but/and for more sophistacted amendments/features you would need to go to the Image dialog.  
Or, Jay, have you also planned to add a possibility to change for instance the colour of the border, line style or so?

Yep thats how its supposed to be. We have a line width field in the toolbar when a shape is selected, which does the same thing.

The frame toolbar does already have a border line color and style in it. :D

While I don't think that having a think border around images is what users typically modify frequently and since we do have the sidebar for this purpose, the options is on the other hand not too far fetched. So removing needsUX.

As the page is white, i usually add a thin gray border around an image which doesnt have dark pixels around its borders, so i know its size. Also the sidebar is only useful for sidebar users, not toolbar or notebookbar users.
