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 the passe-partout jointly with the Classic Frame has a truly powerful impact on a viewer. The frame options are shown on a separate tab.
Adjust the parameters of the effect:
Size (1-100). The parameter changes the width of the passe-partout.
|Size = 20||Size = 60|
Bevel Depth (0-100). The parameter sets the thickness of the border cutting line (in % of the general passe-partout width).
|Bevel Depth = 10||Bevel Depth = 45|
Color. You can select the mat and bevel colors in the color plates.
|White Bevel||Beige Bevel|
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.
|Scale Image to Frame check-box is disabled||Scale Image to Frame check-box is enabled|
Slope. Define what the bevel looks like by choosing one of the options: Outside or Inside.
|Outer Slope||Inner Slope|
Shadow (1-100). Adjust the intensity of the shadow on the inner edge of the passe-partout.
|Shadow = 40||Shadow = 100|
Light Source. Move the marker on the ball to set the probable light source that affects the appearance of the shadow.
Chamfer (0-100). The parameter changes the size of the sloping edge in the corners.
|Chamfer = 10||Chamfer = 50|
You can adjust the chamfer shape:
Round. The inner corner takes a rounded shape.
Ledge. The inner corner has a square shape.
|Ledge||Round + Ledge|
