Original ImageFramed Portrait on Canvas

The effects are grouped as Frames and Effects.



Photo frames (edge effects) let you generate a photo frame for your photo.

Add elegance and style to your image by putting it into a classic frame with wood carving or create a funny picture by adding some cheerful frogs.

The frames samples that come with ArtSuite can be easily tailored to your particular photo. Select a color for the frame; choose its form, its style, brightness, and the intensity of the applied edge effect.

You can create a passe-partout, frame with ragged edges, scratched surface, a page curl, etc. It can be a wooden frame with figured carving or a frame with an ornament. If you enjoy working with layers, you will appreciate the possibility to apply a transparent frame, so that the lower layer(s) could serve as a background.

Create your own unique frames! You can load any image as a sample and generate an original photo frame. The result can be astounding!

Artistic effects allow experimenting with photos – convert a photo into a B&W image and consequently add a color shade to it (for example, a sepia effect); replace colors on an image; add a texture (chosen from the built-in Texture Library or one created by the user) so that the image looks like drawn on a canvas, brick wall, corrugated paper; turn a photo into a halftone picture giving it a retro comic book look; make a portrait photo look glamorous; create a color stripes effect, etc.
