Classic Frame

 

The Classic frame consists of four panels joined to each other at a 45° angle. With the AKVIS program you can create frames of various materials like wood, plastic, fabric, etc. The frame texture, width, and brightness can be easily adjustable. A beautifully designed frame elegantly surrounds your artwork making it even more impressive.

Classic Frame

 

The program comes with a rich Library including a wide range of texture samples and patterns. The samples for the Classic Frame are divided into groups; you can switch between them in the drop-down list.

Texture Library

    Hint: It is possible to load your own texture by selecting Custom… from the drop-down list. You can use the JPEG, BMP, TIFF, and PNG images as textures.

 

Using a sample, the program generates a frame to your liking.

Adjust the parameters:

 

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

Thin Frame Wide Frame
Size = 30 Size = 70

 

Texture Brightness (-100..100). The parameter adjusts the color brightness. To darken the frame, set a value less than 0; to brighten it up, use higher than 0.

Dark Frame Light Frame
Texture Brightness = -50 Texture Brightness = 50

 

Flip Vertical. When the check-box is enabled, the outer and the inner edges of the frame swap over.

Flip Vertical check-box is disabled Flip Vertical check-box is enabled

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.

These options are extremely helpful to get rid of joins which can appear when generating a frame:

Mirror Texture. It combines the texture edges using the specular reflection.

Average Brightness. It removes the joints by averaging the brightness of the texture samples.

Example: Let's take a texture with uneven brightness – its left part is brighter than the right one.

Texture Sample

If both of the check-boxes are disabled, the frame looks like this:

Texture Joints

Activate the check-boxes to remove the texture joints:

Mirror Texture check-box is enabled Both check-boxes are enabled
Mirror Texture check-box is enabled Both check-boxes are enabled
