The Auto FX Software: Photo/Graphic Edges Gen1 Upgrade for Mac (Platinum Edition) is professional grade software used to add Edges, Frames and Borders to enhance the finished version of your digital images. Currently, PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 contains a combination of 32 new Edges, Frames and Borders effects. The new PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 now includes an amazing collection of Film Frames, Darkroom Effects, Grunge Edges, Natural Media Borders and dozens of other new styles with over a thousand pieces of new creative content. PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 includes 300 pre-made layouts and instant effects. Other new features include new storyboards and the ability to Brush-On Edges.
Many of the aspects of PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 can be tweaked by changing the hue, opacity and many other visual characteristics. The user can change the lighting, increase the age of their image, or change the texture. With aspects available to cloning, masking and inverting your selections, the users' creativity will be open without limits. Larger content previews and content collections have also been re-organized so the user can easily find what they are looking for. An improved preview and rendering system along with an updated interface make PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 easier to use. The user can save their customized self-generated Edges, Frames and Borders effects as presets so they can be used again and again.
It is not difficult to master the image enhancement techniques in PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 due to its intuitive nature. With ease of use and a simple redesigned interface, the user can create amazing tint, tone or color effects to their digital images.
When working with Edges the user can reshape the Edges to fit the dimensions of the photo. When the user is working with Frames, the Transform Tool allows you to scale and position the photo as well. There are actually two Transform Tools, Transform Frame/Edges and Transform Photo so the user can tweak the frame or edges and the photo exactly as desired. The Transform Tools in PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 are dynamic and non-destructive.
The user will notice initially how a creative and custom Frame or Border can enhance their digital image. Remove the boring straight edges, expand your possibilities and find your digital images presented with coveted creativity as you are able to expand their creativity. Utilizing the user-friendly interface, the user will quickly find how easy it is to alter their Edges, Frames and Border effects as well as combine many effects within PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1.
Large varieties of options are available and cover many extras such as Scrapbooking, Birthday and Seasonal Edges and Professional Quality Frames. Place pre-selected templates inside your Frame giving the user the ability to make an image directly from the pre-designed presets. Easily create a realistic Frame as if it was 20 years old or older. With PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 the user can compare their digital Frame or Border with the undo/redo hot-key or press the original image button for your starting point. Move backwards and forward as many steps as needed to get the look you are after.
PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 allows the user to add backgrounds for a full layout. Backgrounds include Colors, Gradients, Textures and more. Many of the Edges, Frames and Border effects are for a single image, but there are also Two-Up and Quad Frames that can each hold different angles and cropped sections of the same photo as well as two to four different images depending upon your choice. You can add text to images as well. There are Frames that are designed to look like actual Picture Frames, as well as Scrapbook Style Frames, Embellishments and Layouts. There are also Geometric, Digital, Traditional, Artistic and more modern Edges and Frames as well as Vignettes.
Previously post production on photo images made with film could not be altered very easily except through highly trained and experienced post production technicians. One of the additions to this version of PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 is the ability to add multiple layers to create interestingly unique images. Users of Auto FX Software find themselves pleasantly surprised that the photo realistic darkroom edges available to them with the many software enhancement solutions help the user create any conceivable result desired. An example of this are the features in the Polaroid Transfer. The user can create Polaroid Transfers resembling a realistic result without expensive camera lens filters. Polaroid Transfers generate results making it difficult to distinguish between the PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 digital enhancements and reality generated through expensive camera equipment and lens filters.
PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 includes a selection of instant preset effects giving the user an easy starting point to work from. Now anyone can design their own presets and save them for later use on other images which gives the user total originality in their images.
As you use PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 you will find that it's easy to combine effects together to create that perfect digital image needing minor to major lighting adjustments. Simply check your layers on/off to see how the image appears with or without a particular effect in the stack.
The user notices on/off as indicated by a green check mark for active or a red X for inactive. When the user chooses one particular layer effect to de-activate of the other layers will remain 'active' providing the enhancement and refinement desired. A yellow highlight indicates the particular layer you are currently working with to increase or decrease the enhancement through the sliders and tools.
PhotoGraphic Edges Gen1 is tightly integrated with Adobe Photoshop and works as a plug-in filter accessible under the filters menu in Photoshop. Saving in Adobe Photoshop format as a plug-in will export the effect layers into a single transparent layer in an Adobe Photoshop native document.
