Improvements Since Previous Version
Benefit from over a thousand pieces of creative content, including 32 effects, added since the previous edition. Apply film frames, darkroom effects, grunge edges, natural media borders, and dozens of other stylistic touches. The software provides 300 pre-made layouts and instant effects, as well as updated storyboards and the ability to brush on edges.

Larger content previews and content collections have also been re-organized so you can more easily find what you seek. An improved preview and rendering system, along with an updated interface, make PhotoGraphic Edges Gen 1 easier to use and master.

Additionally, you can clone, mask and invert your selections for even more creative possibilities. Also added in this version of the software is the ability to add multiple layers to create more interesting images.
Edges, Frames and Borders
You can use the dynamic and non-destructive Transform Tool to reshape edges to fit the dimensions of the photo, or to scale and position the photo. Additionally, there is a Transform Tool available for the photo itself, allowing you to tweak the image as desired. Creative custom frames and borders can enhance your images, allowing you to remove conventional straight edges in favor of more unique, artistic options. Easily create a realistic frame as if it were 20+ years old. You can add text to images, as well, generating words for captions and descriptions. Utilize the helpful undo/redo hot-key or press the original image button to return to your starting point if necessary. Move backwards and forward as many steps as needed to get the look you are after.
Available selections include Colors, Gradients, Textures and more.
Place pre-selected templates inside your frame, affording you the ability to make an image directly from the presets. The instant preset effects provide an easy starting point. Anyone can design his/her own presets and save them for later use on other images. Click "Select Preset" and you are there. The new roll-over before/after preset controls display examples of how the effect will look once applied. Customized User Created Presets can be limited to just one effect or feature several stacked together for additional possibilities.
Combine Effects Together Using Layer Effects Palette
You will find that it's easy to combine effects together to create that perfect digital image. Simply check your layers on/off to see how the image appears with or without a particular effect in the stack. When you choose one particular layer effect to deactivate, the other layers will remain active to provide the enhancement and refinement desired. Increase or decrease the enhancements/refinements through the use of the sliders and tools.
Compatibility and Integration
Runs on Mac and Windows operating systems. Can be used as a standalone program or as a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel Draw and Corel Paintshop Pro.
