In Editor, you go to File menu>New>Blank file, enter the dimensions, resolution should be the same value as the resolution of the picture. This will be your canvas. You can add a drop shadow or a frame, i.e. dress it up a bit.
Open the picture file, and crop it to the appropriate size for your purpose. Then drag it from the Photobin to the open blank file previously created in step #1
