If, for any reason, you want to place your images into a border (for example, you want to display paintings placed into a wooden frame at your website, or you need to place a program sreenshot into a frame imitating user’s monitor), you can place every image into a frame manually. However, it will take too much time, even if you deal with few photos. If all your images are of the same size and proportion, you can place them into a frame automatically with the help of Image Converter Plus.
To create a 510×510 pixel frame with 10 pixel width, you should do the following:
- First, create a graphics file with the image of a frame. Inside the frame there should be a rectangular area of the needed size (size of your images after conversion. This rectangular area should be transparent. Memorize size of the frame and its transparent area.
