Strokes Frame

 

The Strokes Frame is made up of straight lines drawn along the border. The width of the frame as well as the width, the number and the length of the lines can be set in the Settings Panel.

Digital picture frame

The Settings Panel offers the following parameters for this digital picture frame.

 

Frame Color. This parameter sets the color of the strokes that form the picture frame. Select a color by double-clicking the color plate and choosing a color from the Select Color dialog.

Transparent. When the check-box Transparent is enabled, the image under the frame gets transparent. One may need it on an image with several layers; in this way, the image on the lower layer(s) is visible and serves as a frame.

Frame Width (0-100%). This parameter sets the width of the frame on which strokes are drawn. At 0% there is no frame, at 100% the width of the frame makes a quarter of the minimum image size (as to its width or height). For example, for an image 600 x 800 pixels the 100% width of the frame is calculated as follows: 1/4 from the minimum size (600 px) is 150 pixels.
Frame Width = 40% Frame Width = 90%
Frame Width = 40% Frame Width = 90%

 

Stroke Width (1-10%). This parameter sets the width of the strokes in percent from a quarter of the minimum image size (as to its width or height). The higher the value of the parameter, the wider the strokes are; if the strokes are extremely wide, they merge and look like one thick line.
Stroke Width = 2% Stroke Width = 7%
Stroke Width = 2% Stroke Width = 7%

 

Stroke Count (1-300). This parameter sets the number of strokes drawn on each side of the image. The higher the value, the more strokes are drawn on each side of the image.
Stroke Count = 30 Stroke Count = 150
Stroke Count = 30 Stroke Count = 150

 

Stroke Length (1-100%). This parameter sets the maximum length of the drawn strokes. The stroke length is calculated in percent from the length of the side along which it is drawn. For example, if the side length is 800 px and the value of the parameter Stroke Length is 50%, then the maximum length of the drawn strokes is 400 pixels.
Stroke Length = 20% Stroke Length = 50%
Stroke Length = 20% Stroke Length = 50%

 

Random Seed (0-9999). This is the starting number for the random number generator that defines the distribution of strokes. Every number corresponds to a particular strokes distribution (provided all other parameters stay the same).
