The Passe-Partout effect allows you to apply a mat or a cardboard for mounting and framing your digital pictures. It creates margins around the image enhancing its visual appeal. Using it jointly with the Classic Frame has a truly powerful impact on a viewer.

Adjust the parameters of the effect:


Size (1-100). The parameter changes the width of the passe-partout.

Bevel Depth (0-100). The parameter sets the thickness of the border cutting line (in % of the general passe-partout width).

Scale Image to Frame. When the check-box is enabled, the image is scaled to fit the frame. When the option is disabled, the frame applies over the image.

Attention! A part of the image will be cropped to keep the aspect ratio.
