Application for creating frame borders around any image.


PhotoFrame is the elegant solution for creating an unlimited variety of professional-quality image frames and border effects. Combine up to three frames designed by fine artists. Advanced features include real-time previews, intuitive controls, any-degree rotation and separate frame and border settings. Imports frames from any Auto F/X(tm) Photo/Graphic Edges volume or any JPEG file.


Now, it is easier than ever to add authentic film and darkroom edge effects to your images. But PhotoFrame is about more than just edges and frames. It includes an extensive library of design elements including edges, frames, backgrounds, textures, adornments, and even complete page layouts. The Library window gives you a fast way to find the perfect element and preview it with your image. 


PhotoFrame 4.6 Pro includes several new collections of design elements. From the Whimsical Collection featuring fresh and bright design elements that are perfect for children and family layouts to the new Family Event Collection that includes elements and layouts for the special events in our lives like birthdays, graduation and holidays. Also included is the Bohemian collection for high school seniors with a distinct, vintage look. 


Get the look of authentic Film Edges and Darkroom Effects, which previously could only be obtained in the darkroom with the use of filters, chemicals and other gadgets, with just a few simple clicks of your mouse. Choose from a large selection of authentic looking edges and effects to give you image the perfect finishing touch.


Create full-page album layouts for yourself or your clients quickly with PhotoFrame 4.6 Pro. Just start with a blank canvas and your images. From PhotoFrame 4.6 Pro's large, high-quality content library, you can add a background to the page and then size and reposition your image and add frames and adornments to style your layout. With the new ability to resize your image and move elements around along with rulers and guides, it has never been faster to create great looking albums. If you create a layout you love, save it as a preset so you can use it again like a template. 


Expand your creativity in PhotoFrame 4.6 with the new ability to apply a frame or other elements as non-destructive clipping masks.


PhotoFrame 4.6 Pro integrates seamlessly into your workflow, no matter what tools and software you use. It works as a plug-in to Photoshop and Photoshop Elements or with Lightroom or Aperture. You can also use PhotoFrame 4.6 Pro as a standalone application all by itself.

This is a very nice application, but $159.95 for this is way over priced for my budget. I suppose for the serious professional its a drop in the bucket. Thankfully for me there are other options that range from $15-40 that I can afford.

Just so people know, this software is NOT $159 as advertised here. It is $259. To me, it is not worth a quarter of the price of CS. Yes, it may have a ton of borders, but it is a unitasker, unlike plug-ins like MaskPro that have a ton of uses. FocalPoint, which has just as many uses is $159. I just don't see the extra value. Sorry.

All I can say is WOW! I have just downloaded and tried out my new V4 upgrade and it is SOOOO much easier and fun to use. I am a long time user and loved it but it was a time consuming thing (for me) to use, so I didn't use it as much as I could have. I LOVE the new interface showing me multiple frame choices at one time - beautiful and FUN. Thank you!!! Love all the new adornments and backgrounds too. Runs fast and smooth too. Mary (just a happy customer)

Nice UI changes from the last version when it was an Extensis product, but not so different as to be confusing. Easily the best framing software. I agree that the price is a bit steep, but products orginating from Extensis have always been on the high side.

No doubt the thousands of frames will appeal but the price will not. Try out Easyframe by yellowmug software first. This would satisfy the needs of many users

Great product, but way overpriced. Should really be $75-$100 max.

Good plugin, very easy to use. Can do the same using layers, with this plugin it is faster. Price is a joke ($200!!!!!).
