Perm, Russian Federation (PressExposure) August 10, 2007 -- Holiday pictures or birthday photosâ¦ photos for marriage albums... they have something in common â they look more impressive when decorated with a beautiful frame.
Whether you plan to upload holiday photos on a web-site to share with your friends or you wish to decorate a birthday card, you can rely on AKVIS Frame Suite - it will add elegance and style to any photo.
AKVIS Frame Suite is an impressing collection of edge effects. The software can generate a great variety of photo frame versions (from classic to most fancy frame samples). Screenshots of the program's features are available at http://akvis.com/en/frame-suite/screenshots-photo-framing.php
Version 2.0 offers two more edge effects:
The new Frost effect is a truly revolutionary solution. It generates frost crystals around an image, imitating the frost patterns one sees on a window pane in winter. The unique algorithm developed together with professional artists offers a realistic effect that appears very close to the natural phenomenon. It is not just a light-blue ornament, but real ice crystals growing up on the image borders, like on a freezing window pane.
The new Artistic Crop effect accentuates a certain part of an image by blurring the rest of it. The focus of attention is shifted to this part and the photograph is seen in a new light. The blurred frame can have different color tints, while the framed image can not only be centered but also moved to any position on the frame.
Other changes: Frame Suite is now a Universal Binary application - it works equally fast on both PPC- and Intel-Macs (without the Rosetta emulator). Compatibility with Photoshop CS3 on Intel Mac. New interface and help languages have been added (English, German, Russian, and Japanese). Improved color profiles handling.
The 11 edge effects that come with Frame Suite can be easily tailored to your particular photo and generate an endless number of different photo frames. 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.
The software gives an opportunity to create a frame out of user patterns. Just save a square or rectangular pattern as a graphic file and use it to generate your unique photo frame. The result can be astounding! 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 a 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 â as an independent program (standalone) and as a plug-in to a photo editor.
