In addition to the hand painted frames available in the Library of AKVIS ArtSuite, you can design one yourself. It's possible to make a frame with any photo editor which supports saving files in PNG format with transparency. In ArtSuite you can place a photo into this PNG image, and press the Run button; the edges of the photo will be smoothed and hidden to fit the frame, and you will get a stylish and impressive framed picture.
A method for making a frame for AKVIS ArtSuite using Adobe Photoshop is described below. If you do not have Photoshop, you can take another program that supports selections and transparency, for example, AKVIS MultiBrush.
Press OK in the window that appears.
Delete the fragment with the command Edit -> Clear from the menu or by pressing the Del key.
Remove the selection with the command Select -> Deselect or by pressing Ctrl+D.
Choose Layer -> Layer Style -> Outer Glow from the menu and set the parameters of the effect as shown in the image below.
Apply the effect Inner Glow: Layer -> Layer Style -> Inner Glow, in a similar way.
