[ale] Converting size with Gimp

I'm trying to use convert to add a white border around my 4.0MP images.
I then use GIMP to write a date on that border.
When I take to Sam's to print it wants to crop the image to 4x6, 5x7, or
8x10. This cuts off the top half and bottom half of the picture. I do
not care about losing part of the picture I do not want to lose the
bottom and top border. Is there a way I can use GIMP to crop the image
to a 4x6 size without it trying to size the image smaller. I like the
size of the image being big because I want to make sure there is enough
data there to print a nice image.
I'm trying to come up with a process to add a border and data to an
image before I print them. I do not like the date on the actual image
so I do not allow my camera to create one. I like the date on the white
border I've created. Now If I can only figure out the perfect font and
how to position the date text in the exact center of the white border.
Thanks for the help,
