If you really want to give the distinct impression that an image was captured with film, even if it's a digital photo, one of the ways you can very clearly identify an image as being a film image is to add a film frame around the edge. Let's take a look at the various options that are available for adding a frame around a photo in Analog Efex Pro. I'll start off having chosen a preset that includes a photo frame. By clicking the frames heading over on the right panel.
So that I can adjust the various controls for that frame. And as you can see, there are not all that many controls available. We essentially are going to simply choose a particular variety of frame that we'd like to add to the image. To begin with, I'll go ahead and click the pop up at the top of the section here. And you can see, we can choose from. Film strip, white or lightbox. Obviously, the Film strip options. As you see here, represent the edge of film. So, we have, for example, the image number off of the roller film shown in this particular image and we can choose among a variety of different options there.
We can also choose White, which gives us a white border effect sort of like what we might see after printing an image from a photo plate or from a negative, depending on the particular option we choose. And then finally we have Light box, where we get a sort of light-leak type of effect around the edges of the image. I'll go ahead and choose the Film strip option here and I'll opt for one of the options that literally just shows me a film strip along the edge and you can see that that gives me a very simple effect quickly and easily but again we have a variety of different options available.
The process of selecting one of the various frames is very simply, you're just clicking on a thumbnail in order to activate that particular effect within the image and so I encourage you to experiment around a little bit. Taking a look at all of the various options that are available to you, until you find the option that you'd like to use, for a particular photo.
