I'm pretty new to post processing, and picture taking in general. I'm looking at the various free and paid post processing software now, and looking also at the best places to store and share my photos.
I want it all to look real nice, for the long haul.

Anyway, I'm wondering which software I can get to put frames/borders around some of my images. I downloaded elements 7 trial the other day, used picasa etc.. but have not seen that option anywhere.
Where can I get that ability ?

Thank you.
floyd

Hi fwellers,

To the software in general take a look at Slapo´s list of software found here: http://www.cameralabs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7811

To place your photo´s there would be flickr, photobucket cs.

And yes, I think that every software has the ability to put frames/borders around your pics. That is one of the easier parts of the software!

Look in Slapo´s list and you`ll find everything you need!

Kind regards,

BTW, I use eg. Gimp and Faststoneviewer, the latter can do the trick and they are freeware.

Thanks.
I guess I need to look harder at the software. I have a trial version of Elements 7 and can't even find it there.

I'll look harder.

Appreciate it.

I've searched for borders/frames too, Floyd. All I know is that Lightroom 1+2 doesn't do frames. You have only a choice in the slide-show module, but that frame cannot be exported together with the image.
Also CaptureNX 1+2 is not able to frame :(
Sorry to have no better news...

Thomas,

I have not gotten into the post processing as yet but I have seen this thread in Nikonians that has some impressive frames and mats layered in PhotoShop. The discussion there is over my head since I have not invested any time trying to master these tools. Maybe you can find something that helps you with Lightroom. There is a link also to detail converting actions in PS into PElements. Can this also apply to Lightroom?

Hmm, I'm not a master in PS myself! But I'll have a look at it.
Thanks for the heads-up, Jim!

I haven't looked too far into this, but Adobe provides a free exchange of actions, patterns, swatches, etc for all their programs.

http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm

In the search, type in "actions frames" and you'll get a few results. To narrow by Photoshop, use the dropdown on the top after you perform a search. The top few results look pretty good.

Actions in Photoshop automate certain commands. However, some of the commands might not be available in Photoshop Elements, so I'm not sure how well this will pan out for you.
