Adding Frame Packs to the Program
AKVIS Frames program lets you apply ready to use frames created by artists specially for AKVIS. Some frames are included in the program and available in the Default Pack. You can also purchase extra theme frame packs, each set is designed for a specific topic, for example: four seasons sets, packs related to hobbies, special event sets like Christmas, Wedding, Valentine, Communion, Halloween... and many others!
Each pack is fully represented in thumbnails. Upon visiting a pack's page, you can see all of the picture frames you would be interested in. Therefore, you won't be buying a "pig in a poke", but rather the frames that you need.
After an order has been paid, you will receive by email a link to the frame pack as a .zip will be sent along with a license number for registering the pack.
How to add a frame pack to AKVIS Frames:
Step 1. Download the set of frames using the link in your order confirmation email or directly from the program via the Frame Packs Manager. It is a .zip file.
Step 2. Copy the .zip file (do not open it!) to a folder selected in program's preferences.
By default, the program uses the AKVIS folder in Users Shared Documents:
in Windows 10/8.1/8/7/Vista:
in Windows XP:
Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\AKVIS
in Mac OS X:
You can choose another folder in Preferences -> Set Frame Packs Folder.
Attention! Do not open the .zip file yourself. Just copy it to a folder.
It can only be loaded by the AKVIS program.
Step 3. You will see all of the loaded frame packs in a list, and the frame thumbnail below for the selected pack.
The frame packs must be registered. (See "unregistered" near the pack's name.)
You can start the activation process by clicking on the pack here, in the right panel, or using the Frame Packs Manager.
How to register a frame pack in AKVIS Frames:
The frames will be available to use only after registration. Activate each pack with its serial number.
- Step 1. Open the Frame Packs Manager.
Step 2. Choose the frame pack in the list and click on Activate.
Step 3. In the activation window enter your name and the serial number (registration key) you received after purchasing the pack.
Choose an activation method — by direct connection to the activation server or by email. We recommend registering by direct connection, since it is more convenient. To register using this method your computer must be connected to the internet.
Step 4. Click on the ACTIVATE button.
Registration is complete! The "unregistered" sign near the pack's name disappeared. Repeat for all packs. You can now use the frames!
