[prMac.com] AKVIS Frame Suite is an impressing collection of edge effects for decoration of photos. The software offers a great variety of photo frame versions (from classic to most fancy frame samples) as well as gives an opportunity to generate a frame out of user patterns.
A photo frame gives an image the final touch, makes it look complete and of artistic value. Depending on the occasion it can be a strict frame or a colorful motley decoration.
Whether you wish to decorate a birthday card or to make a marriage album, you can rely on the program - it will add any photo elegance and style. Screenshots of the program's features are available at http://akvis.com/en/frame-suite/screenshots-photo-framing.php.
You create your own unique frames. Save a square or rectangular pattern as a graphic file and use it to generate an original photo frame. The result can be astounding!
Photo frames that come with Frame Suite can be easily tailored to your particular photo. Select a color for the frame; choose its form, its style, brightness, and the intensity of the applied edge effect. You can create a frame with ragged edges, scratched surface, a page curl, etc. It can be a wooden frame with figured carving or a frame with an ornament.
If you enjoy working with layers, you will appreciate the possibility to apply a transparent frame, so that the lower layer(s) could serve as background.
If you like the frame you get, you can save it as a preset and apply it to other photos in the future.
The program is available in two versions – as an independent program (standalone) and as a plug-in to a photo editor.
AKVIS Frame Suite Plugin is compatible with Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, Corel Painter, Corel Photo-Paint, and Paint Shop Pro, ACD FotoCanvas, and Ulead PhotoImpact.
