In this post I will give you few tips how to use frames pack in ArtSuite, preview of all frames included in package, tips for batch processing and download links to get free fonts, styles and PSD templates with text effects.
This is plugin for anyone who likes frames, borders and special effects. Who doesn't? This app works alone because there are lot of effects which can be used before adding frames but it works excellent and with Akvis ArtWork to decorate paintings using frames from my favourite collection of frames: Classic Frames > Antique. Beside Antique Collection I like and Wooden frames which are also scary realistic…
Frames are almost live, as I have captured and extracted them few minutes ago.
Effects are also fabulous with again fabulous presets which in most cases actually does not need almost any further refinements although you can refine every preset and even save it for later use. My favourites in Effects section are Black and White and Halftone which will leave you without breath from the first use.
Software Review: AKVIS Frame Suite
(Mark Mattson, Computer Users of Erie, Horizons, 2/2008)
Edge effect framing is becoming all the rage lately with digital images. As they are easy to apply and manipulate, they can be seen all over the place, enhancing the work of many photographers. There are many sources for frames and edge effects, but one of the best places is from good ‘ol AKVIS, with their Frame Suite package.
Mooie foto’s verdienen mooie kaders. Dat is in ieder geval het opzet van AKVIS Frame Suite. Met dit programma geeft u uw favoriete afbeeldingen in enkele luttele seconden een knap lijstje. Kiddy, artistiek, klassiek of creatief... AKVIS Frame Suite heeft veel in zijn mars! <...>
AKVIS Frame Suite beschikt over meer dan tien soorten kaders. Indien u bijvoorbeeld voor Pattern kiest, kunt u een kleurrijke kleine afbeelding kiezen en daarmee een lijstje maken. De grootte, richting en achtergrondkleur van uw afbeelding kunt u zonder problemen aan uw wensen aanpassen. Deze lijsttechniek oogt schattig en is daardoor ideaal om kinderfoto’s op te fleuren.
AKVIS Frame Suite 2.5
(L. Davenport, www.smmug.org, 9/2007)
AKVIS Frame Suite is designed to spruce up the look of your photos by adding a frame or edge effect.
There are eleven different frame/edge distortion categories that you can apply to your photos: Classic, Patterns, Strokes, Scratches, Page Curl,
Squares, Ragged, Spray, Artistic, Frost, and Artistic Crop. A twelfth category is called Texture. Instead of modifying the edge of the photo, it will
let you apply a pattern (to give it a bumpy appearance) to the whole picture. All categories give you settings that you can modify so you can get
the frame/effect you are looking for. <...>
AKVIS Frame Suite is easy to learn and use. I like that if it doesn’t have a frame that you want-you can import your own designs. I also like the fact that it has a stand-alone version. Typically, AKVIS’ programs come as plug-ins. So if you don’t have a compatible photo editor, you can’t use their plug-in. Not any longer. I noticed that four out of ten of their programs now have stand-alone versions.
Photoshop and other image editors include a tange of tools that do allow you to create different types of frames. However, most of these tools are not automatic nor do they contain a library of preset frames that can be tweaked.
AKVIS Frame Suite, a Photoshop compatible plug-in contains an impressive collection frames and edge effects that can be used to add a creative flair to your images. And if you are not happy with the default frames provided, you can tweak them and create your own preset.
