One way to make our photos standout when sharing with friends and relatives isn’t available in iPhoto. Because we often share photos via email, Instagram, Twitter or Flickr, we miss out on a great way to dress up a good photo. Frames. Here’s how to get a few hundred on your Mac.
Worthy Photos Need Frames
Maybe it’s a generational thing, but frames for photos seems to be a dying art. Everyone simply emails or uploads photos instead of sharing a printed photo with a frame.
ImageFramer will change your mind about the convenience of sharing and give you a quick idea on how photos really look with the right frame.
Building frames was once the purview of the professional framer in the mall.
We would grab a few photos, print them out, carry them to the mall and hope the frame store had something that matched.
With ImageFramer you don’t even need to go to the mall because you can create your own unique photo frame. Everything you need is managed with a click.
So, how do you get such luscious, professional quality frames from photos on your Mac?
Start with the Frame Library. Drop in a photo and select a frame to match. All the elements of the farm are adjustable, from color, shadow, width, opacity, saturation and lightness.
ImageFramer gives you controls over Mats, Templates, and Watermarks from within the app. There’s even a customizable Frame Editor if the 500 templates are not enough.
If there’s a better way to create fully customizable frames on a Mac, I don’t know where to find the app. ImageFramer feels like a fully qualified professional application, but is rather straightforward to setup and use.
You’ll spend more time in trial-and-error mode than actually printing out high quality photos with custom frames. The only thing missing in ImageFramer is a 3D printer that could print out the frame sections.
