The Passe-Partout effect allows you to apply a mat or cardboard for mounting and framing your digital pictures. The effect creates margins around the image and enhances its visual appeal.
Using it jointly with the Classic Frame has a powerful impact on a viewer. To harmoniously combine these two kinds of frames, enable the corresponding option in the Classic tab of the Passe-Partout effect.
Adjust the parameters of the effect Passe-Partout:
Size (1-100). The parameter changes the width of the passe-partout.
Bevel Depth (0-100). The parameter sets the thickness of the border cutting line (in % of the general passe-partout width).
Color. You can select the mat and bevel colors in the color plates.
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.
Slope. Define what the bevel looks like by choosing one of the options: Outside or Inside.
Shadow (1-100). Adjust the intensity of the shadow on the inner edge of the passe-partout.
Light Source. Move the marker on the ball to set the probable light source that affects the appearance of the shadow.
Chamfer (0-100). The parameter changes the size of the sloping edge in the corners.
You can adjust the chamfer shape:
Round. The inner corner takes a rounded shape.
Ledge. The inner corner has a square shape.
