Classic Frame

  • Step 1. Prepare the image you want to use as a frame. A picture of any size, in the JPEG, BMP, TIFF or PNG format can be used as a texture. For example, this:

    Sample 1 Sample 2
    Texture Samples
  • Step 2. AKVIS ArtSuite (standalone). Open an image, from which you want to make a frame, by double clicking in the blank area or pressing in the Control Panel.
  • Step 3. Select the Classic Frame type in the Settings Panel.

    The Library contains a rich collection of textures and patterns grouped in sets.

    To load your own texture into ArtSuite, select <Custom>… in the list.

    This will open the dialog to load your own texture.

  • Step 4. Use the settings to resize, mirror the texture, adjust brightness, or flip the frame vertically to change the frame's appearance.

    Here is the result:

Pattern Frame

  • Step 1. Prepare the image which you will use for the frame. For best results, use a square image in the PNG format with a transparent background. If you have no such images, you can choose any other, such as:

    Sample 3 Sample 4
    Texture Samples
  • Step 2. Start AKVIS ArtSuite (standalone). Open the image which you want to use in the frame by double clicking in the blank area or pressing in the Control Panel.
  • Step 3. Choose the Pattern frame type from the Settings Panel.
