Add a Frame to Your Blog Photos...

I'm sure you've seen blogs that display their post photos in a lovely frame..  And wondered 'How did they do that?'  Well, today I'd like to share with you a Free and easy way for you to do just that..


 Here's a couple of frames to get us started, just right click on the one you want to use and Save it to your computer files.. Now I want you to go to Fotoflexer and click on 'Layers' at the bottom of the screen.. Click on 'Edit from my Computer' and choose the frame you just saved.. Now at the top menu bar, click on 'Add Another Photo' and choose the photo you'd like to use.. Just click on a corner and drag the photo to get it the right size for your frame..Now click on 'push back' and your photo will move behind your frame.. Do you love it? 
Now let's add our Watermark to it.. Go to the menu bar and click on 'Decorate'..and then click on 'Text'.. Just type in your text and you will see it in a little box on top of your framed image, click on a corner and drag the text to the size you like..Now on the right side of the screen you will see a 'text options' box, click on 'transparent'.. Now you can choose your favorite font and colour.. Now just click on the text image and drag it where you want it.. When you have it where you like it, just click on a white space on the screen..( to get the working square to disappear) This is what your image will look like on your blog post.. You can click on 'Fullscreen' to view your creation.. Now go to the menu bar at the top of the screen and click on 'Save'.. Below your image you will see 'format'.. Click on the arrow and choose 'PNG' for transparency.. Now just name your new image and 'Save to your computer files'.. Just click 'quit' to start with a new image..  and you're done..  

Hope you enjoy 'dressing up' your blog photos with these sweet vintage frames..  Just drop me a line if you have any questions, I'd be happy to help..
And I'd Love to see your 'framed creations'.. You could leave me a comment with a link to your blog post.. (wink)

Have an awesome day..

Thanks for the very detailed instructions for adding frames. I LOVE IT!! I tried it once before, without detailed instructions, but couldn't quite get it. I knew it could be done, just didn't have the time to figure it out. Please visit my blog and see my picture frame - I think I'll frame all my photos.
