Contrast that era of artwork with today’s emailed photos, sans frame of any kind. Here’s a clever Mac app that brings back a little of the glory of classic word frames, sans the ornamentation.
I Am, Therefore, iFrame
Photo collage apps for the Mac range from free to tens of dollars. At the low end of the cost scale is a remarkably capable photo frame app for a mere 99-cents.
iFrame gives you over 100 different photo frame options, in various aspect ratios, all with drag and drop simplicity.
Just drag a photo onto the frame, change the settings to match your photo or desired effect.
iFrame does 1:1, 3:2, 2:3, 4:3, 3:4, and 16:9, but also lets you drop up to eight photos into a frame, collage style.
The frame size, color, and texture can be adjust using point and click or simple slider tools.
Here’s a sample.
Click on the iFrame Layout tool to view the number of collage frames available. Then, just drag and drop photos into each frame.
Frames are not limited to simple rectangles, either. Choose from a wide variety of angled collage frames.
The simple slider tools can change a frame’s border thickness, even on different sides.
iFrame may be one of the more elegant photo framing apps that also does collages.
The tools are easy to master and mostly self explanatory. Photos can be sized within a frame, of course, but there are no tools to modify the photo itself.
If there’s a shortcoming, considering the low price tag, it’s the style of wood frames and color options. The frames tend to have a similar look, regardless of the complexity of the collage.
