Unfortunately there is no _general_ record action feature. But for actions such as this, there is a nice plugin that works just fine. You can get the plugin BIMP here: http://www.alessandrofrancesconi.it/projects/bimp/ The first part is very easy with BIMP. The second part is also fairly easy, though a little hacky. BIMP shows up in the File menu. From there, add an action to resize to 6x4" 300dpi, add images and do the export. First step done. Now create a 6x4" 100dpi PNG image with a transparent background and a 10px border. Add the same images to BIMP, add an action to resize to 6x4" 100dpi, and another action to add a watermark. Place the watermark in the center, and select your PNG. This seems to work from my quick testing, though I guess it would be better if BIMP itself had an "add border" feature.
