In iPhoto you can share photos, upload photos, add photos to a book or card, but a collage of frames is not optional without an optional app. Fortunately, the app is easy, cheap, and simple to use.
If you can spare 99-cents you’ll have a Mac app that combines multiple photos into a picture frame or collage of photos perfect for saving, sharing, or printing.
Drag And Drop Photo Frame Creation
PicFrame is a pure one-trick pony app for your photos. All it does is frames. Oh, and share the frames and photos.
All you have to do is open PicFrame, select from the 34 adjustable frames, then drag and drop photos where you want them– one photo per frame, but up to five photos and frames to a page.
The frames are also customizable. Adjust the border size and color. Add rounded corners. Add a pattern. Even resize the adjustable frames on the screen.
Here’s how the app looks. Select a frame. Drop in a photo. Adjust as needed.
Frame size, color, and style controls are self explanatory. Use the slider bar to adjust size and corners. Click to select a frame color or a pattern.
PicFrame may seem like a one-trick pony app, but it does have a few more useful features.
For example, the frames can be resized or kept in specific proportions.
The photos can be dragged around inside the frame to improve composition. You can even zoom in or out.
The frame pattern selections are a bit anemic but work fine as a matte for a real photo frame.
The finished frame and photos can also be shared on Facebook. There’s also an iPhone and iPad version of PicFrame with more frames and more options than the Mac version.
