What's New
Version 3.1.2:

Notes:

  • ImageFramer 3.1.2 is more than a dot update. It brings some of the most long-requested features. It's also the last version to work on Leopard (10.5). Please read the release notes carefully as some changes might be hard to discover on your own.
  • As OS X 10.7 (Lion) is going to be released soon, this will be the last version of ImageFramer to support Leopard (10.5) and thus PowerPC Macs. Apple doesn't make it easy to support both Lion and Leopard at the same time, and we have a general policy to try and support one major OS version back. We'll only release an update for Leopard if a major bug will be discovered in this version. On the other hand, this will allow us to give better experience to Snow Leopard and Lion customers, which is already the vast majority of users.

New:

  • Show aspect ratio of the framed image on the bottom bar. You can select the desired aspect ratio, based on common image ratios, and ImageFramer will display where you are related to it. It wil show in green color, when it's close. You can also select to let ImageFramer show the resulting aspect ratio based on the closest standard ratio, automatically.
  • ImageFramer also shows the framed image's size (in pixels) above the aspect ratio. The framed image size is based on the Drag Export preferences which are also saved between ImageFramer launches. Clicking on the image size text will take you straight to this preference, where you'll be able to modify the exported image size calculation method.
  • All sliders on the layers' controls now have a text box next to them to allow seeing and entering exact numbers for the slider values.
  • Added slider locking to image cropping control, similar to the lock in the color mat controls.
  • Hold Alt (Option) key to temporarily toggle the lock in color mats and image cropping controls. This is usually faster than clicking on the lock icon and then clicking again.
  • Holding Alt (Option) key replaces topmost frame layer instead of adding a new layer above it. This is very useful if you want to compare different frames fast since now you have to delete the layer and then add a new one.
  • Added three-finger swipe gesture support to Library view:
    • Swiping to the right will behave like double clicking on the selected library item. In Collections will dive into selected collection, same for Sets. In frames it will add the selected frame to the design (or replace if Alt key is held).
    • Swiping to the left will take you up a level in the hierarch. From frames to sets, from sets to collections.
    • Swiping up or down will alternate between Library and Favorites.
  • Added instructions to Variation panel when there are no variations
  • Lock sliders on color mat sizes by default since you'll usually will wat to start with changing all sides and only later possibly adapt sides one by one.
  • Allow deleting collections with a Backspace or Delete keys in Frame Editor. (Pro edition only). Erasing Collections and Sets will now also ask for confirmation, if they're not empty.
  • Allow .tiff and .jpeg extensions. Handle TIFF in a smart way, will try to match source extension. This helps to integrate ImageFramer with Aperture.
  • On Snow Leopard and higher, when entering Save Dialog, ImageFramer will propose the target file name based on the Export Preferences, so you can automatically add prefix or suffixes, like with Drag Export.
  • Added newsletter signup from within ImageFramer menu.
  • Added check for ongoing Frames Library update to prevent app to quit during this time.

Fixed:

  • Exported image size was often giving 1-pixel off dimensions when calculating them based on original image size. This often led to non-crisp rendering of the original image, which is obviously not desired.
  • Occasional issues with corrupted export images when the image has transparent parts.
Version 3.1.2:

Notes:

  • ImageFramer 3.1.2 is more than a dot update. It brings some of the most long-requested features. It's also the last version to work on Leopard (10.5). Please read the release notes carefully as some changes might be hard to discover on your own.
  • As OS X 10.7 (Lion) is going to be released soon, this will be the last version of ImageFramer to support more...

I played with some other tools before I decide to get ImageFramer. Here a small review:

Thanks to its simple interface, you can work easily with ImageFramer.

This app will enable you to add frames to your images with just a few clicks.
You can also add a text or image watermark on your images.

It's great that you can add multiple layers of photorealistic and artistic frames to the pictuers.

It offers a speedy alternative to anyone who wants to quickly add frames to digital pictures.

The result is very beautiful.

Always loved ImageFramer mote than Fotoframe and others that I own...with this last ver.3, for me it is the perfect tool for what it does.
I upgraded to the pro version for all the plus it has...watermarking is very clever, easy and good looking, but above all you have the Frame Editor to build your own frames, love it.
Have a try, you won't be disappointed ;-)

Upgrading to v3.0 was a no-brainer. As soon as I saw it here at MacUpdate, I upgraded from the standard version to the Pro version.

This is a great app, made even better in this version.

Excellent piece of software done with panache. Choose from a large selection of frames and mats with infinite refinements, or build your own. I guess I would love it even more if it came with an Aperture plugin, but hey, it works, works well, is intuitive, and backed by the developers. If you're at all fudging on the purchase, I'd go for it.

I was looking for frames for PSE, when I came across Image Framer. This is really cool. It is very fast and easy to frame up any of your photo's.

I wanted something in PSE8, but I chose this for its ease of use. Lots of frames to chose from, with a multitude of options, and you can even add your own.

Computers are supposed to make life easy, and this helps a lot!

This is the best program available if you want to add a frame to a picture. A framed picture looks so much better.

Fun little app. If you frame a picture of Mario or a mushroom, it looks funny :-) Design the Mushroom Kingdom's wall hangings!
