Release Notes:

Many new features and improvements in version 4.0, including:

* extension to add frames and borders to your photos right from Photos.
* BATCH PROCESSING: You can quickly process multiple images using the same template and output settings. ImageFramer can now apply a template to individual files as well as whole folders of images with a few clicks. You have total control over the format, sizing and details of the files being saved. You can easily preview the results before making any changes.
* macOS Share extension: you can share images to ImageFramer for editing
* You can now SAVE DESIGN TEMPLATES as separate documents that can be shared or backed up.
* We added IMPORTING and EXPORTING of FRAMES from the frame editor. You can now export frames, sets or even entire collections of the frames. (Exporting of frames requires Pro features, as it is part of the Frame Editor)
* We’ve added an Adobe Lightroom plugin to post-process exported photos using ImageFramer, making is easier to integrate your projects with Adobe Lightroom.
* We’ve added a new Design option to save framed images with their EXTERNAL SHADOW intact.
* We’ve included the ability to save to the .PSD (Photoshop) file format.
* Now, the images used in image overlays are embedded within in their design templates--No need to keep the original image.
* Molding frame layers now adds a new attribute in frame editor called "Mirror images". This allows for easier creation of repeatable frame patterns by “mirroring” the image of the frame on each subsequent repetition, forcing the edges to align. Mirror images can also keep the graphics file size smaller, saving space and memory.
* Snapping of text and image overlays will adjust to the edge or the center of the frame with ease.
* We’ve added “Scale" control to full-frame frame types. This allows some full-frame frames, like those with small opening in the middle, to work better
* The ImageFramer Library panel adds a "Recent" tab, which lists frames that were either recently used by design, or edited in Frame Editor, or imported. A real time-saver.
* The ImageFramer “Recent” and “Favorite” tabs in the Library panel now contain a "Show in Library" pop-up menu item to quickly navigate to the frame in the "All" tab. Another time-saver!
* The ImageFramer “Library” panel can now filter frames in the current list by their name.
* The ImageFramer “View” menu saves preferred presentation settings (background colors and zoom). These setting will be used for all new windows and can be quickly restored to.
* We’ve added “Page Size” and “Copies” to the Print dialog
* We’ve improved Template editing. Now removing, adding and renaming of Templates in the Templates panel can now be easily undone via the Edit menu (or Command-Z).
* Mouse Scroll-wheel (or two-finger up/down swipe) resizing of frame layers will now work for the currently selected layer in the strip,(instead of the layer under the cursor) making scrolling work more predictably.
* Various improvements to the color adjustment of text
* Use the macOS Terminal app to easily process images and apply templates (if that’s your kind of thing ;).
* Lots of UI and bug fixes.

Version 3.2.1
Review by Ernie W

Excelent App. Worth the money. - I always read the low reviews before downloading an app. What I saw was a lot of people wanting somethine for nothing. Good software can’t be free. I tried the free version and it proved it would sute my needs. I ended up buying the full $70 version and very glad I did. I have gottem more complements on my posting of photos using ImageFramer. It is easy to use and the results are amazing. I can export my projects in multipule formats and print from any image viewer. I usually import my projects into FaceBook or use them in emails. This app is a good example of you get what you pay for. Don’t be so cheap if you want good results.

Version 3.1.3
Review by PumpkinSpicePink

Not worth downloading - Image framer free has a lot of resrictions, You cant even SAVE YOUR FRAMES, when you try to save your frames, a message pops up saying you need to unlock features, when you click unlock features, you have to PAY $20.00 for the standard features, more for the Pro. This is just a trial, download it to see what it is, after your done, just delete it. Otherwise Skip this app. no ofense to the creators of ImageFramer
