Step 2 - Add a Frame to the Image

You can choose from a range of ready made frames or start with a custom frame. Each frame has settings that can be changed to however you want.

Custom Border

If you want a simple frame, go with Customer Border. We will give you a quick example below. Click on Custom Border to open the menu options.

In the Custom Border options, you can add an Outer and Inner Border, each with their own color. You can adjust the thickness of each border and even round off edges of the Inner Border.

Add a Decorative Border

There is a huge selection of ready made frames with different themes to choose from. Click on any of the theme menus and scroll through the frames. We chose the Hand Drawn theme and Frame 031.

The position of the frame can be adjusted slightly by moving the round slide button. The frame will be white by default but this can be changed.

But keep in mind, if you do want to keep the changes you must click Apply before moving on. In the image below, we closed out of the Hand Drawn theme. We then chose a frame from the Grunge theme where the color and opacity were adjusted.
