FrameFun 2.0.0.7

Attach:FrameFunScreen.jpg

FrameFun is a simple application to add frames to Bitmap, JPEG or PNG images. You may select an outer frame, a border around the image and a drop shadow for a 3D effect.
You can modify the color and width of each Frame, Border and Shadow. You may additionally modify the direction of the drop shadow.
A Batch Conversion option allows you to "frame" several pictures in one go. If the pictures have different sizes, you can select a relative Frame/Border/Shadow width.

Examples

Attach:FF1.jpg

Attach:FF1-Framed.jpg

A white frame, a thin black border and a dark grey shadow at 225°

Attach:FF2.jpg

Attach:FF2-Framed.jpg

A blue frame, a white border and a black shadow at 135°

Attach:FF3.jpg

Attach:FF3-Framed.jpg

A light brown frame, chosen via the eyedrop color picker, a white border and a medium dark shadow. When put on a background with the same colour then you'll get a seamless display.
However, to cope with less-than-24bit colour depths, your best bet would be to take "web safe" colours. (r, g and b values are each $00, $33, $66, $99, $CC or $FF - 6x6x6 = 216 web-safe? colours)

Attach:FF4.jpg

Attach:FF4-Framed.jpg

A thin light yellow frame, dark brown border with wide vignette. This has the effect of an old, probably poorly processed photo bleached by the years.

General hints

  • The border cannot be wider than the frame, obviously
  • Double-click on the target image for a quick full-sized preview
  • Use the context menus (right click...) in the image panes...
  • Source and target directory cannot be the same when doing batch conversions
  • You can save and retrieve different sets of settings. The last effective setting is automatically saved and reloaded when you next run the program.
