Meet a program that puts your photographs in virtual frames and surrounds them with edgy borders.
What it does: Auto FX Photo/Graphic Edges 6.0 is a collection of borders, edges, and frames that can be used to emulate darkroom frame effects, Polaroid edges, or otherworldly effects. There are plenty of edges that are thematic or just plain fun, and add pizzaz to your pictures. Burnt edges, vignetting, transfer prints, watercolor frames, storyboards, tabs, smudged edges and duel frames. You can put a frame around your favorite images to help tell a story or give a counterpoint, or to just make a creative statement.
Who it’s for: People who pine for the days of filed negative carriers, and creative types.
What else you need to use it: Mac OS X, Windows 2000, XP or Vista, and Photoshop 7 and higher.
