The Toolbox: Frames Tab

The Toolbox is going to be a series of articles in which we go one by one discussing the tools available in iPiccy Photo Editor. We’ll talk about the strengths, weaknesses, and appropriate times to use these tools. Last time we talked about the Blender Tab but today we’re talking about the Frames Tab.

The Frames tab is a pretty self explanatory tab. It’s a section where you’ll find all of the frames in iPiccy! Why are frames important? Well frames have a lot of potential to change and spice up your photo. A frame can help set the tone and style that you’re looking for with any of your designs, images, and photos. Obviously what’s in the frame is going to be what is most important, but having a frame that perfectly accents your images will make it that much better.

That’s a mirror frame, which some may consider a more fancy frame. However, there are often times where the most simple frames help accent your photos.



Looks pretty great, no? That isn’t to say more quirky and crazy frames aren’t fun too, look at this holiday themed one for example:


The snowflakes frame turned this snowy image into a perfect holiday card. There are frames for every situation, it’s up to you to find them and use the frames to your advantage. After using a few of the frames, you’ll become quickly familiar with what frames are capable of.

When To Use The Frames Tab

From small personal moments to the grand masterpieces of life, a picture needs a frame to help capture the moment and feeling. A frame will help etch that moment in your history forever, or it will give timelessness, class, and taste to your work.
