In a previous post, I described the way to add a simple frame to pictures, in order to improve their presentation (in paper or online) possibilities.

However, this process may be too simple sometimes. Even when the frame itself should not draw the attention from the picture, we can make it a bit nicer. Let's check two simple proposals:

Stacked frame

If we repeat the original process several times, alternating foreground and background colors (maybe, an 1% each time), we may highlight the line between frame and picture, if the picture has similar colors in the outer areas.

For example, I make the following changes to the original 800 x 600 image:

  • Increase frame by 1% (8 pixels), black background
  • Increase frame by 1% (8 pixels), white background
  • Increase frame by 3% (24 pixels), black background

You will notice that overall frame thickness remains at 5% / 40 pixels, as in the previous post. This is entirely a personal decision... te result would look like this:

Play with color

Of course, we are not limited to black and white in digital photography and framing. You may take a color sample from your sepia picture (for example...) for one of the canvas resizing steps.

In the following image, I used the following process:

  • Increase frame by 1% (8 pixels), white background
  • Increase frame by 1% (8 pixels), sepia background
  • Increase frame by 1% (8 pixels), white background
  • Increase frame by 1% (8 pixels), black background

In this case, frame is a total 6%, to increase the importance of the color line over the white background:
