Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding frames and borders, part of Designing a Photo Book.
There are a number of frame and border treatments we can consider for our photographs. …The most straightforward is a simple keyline or stroke. …As well as providing an elegant frame, a keyline might also help define the …borders of an image where its edges are indistinguishable from the paper color. …Drop shadows can give a sense of dimension and help lift images from the background. …Then there are distressed frames and reflections. …Keep in mind that if you adopt one of these treatments, you'll need to be …consistent and carry it through to all the images in your book.…
And you definitely would not want to mix and match these different frame styles. …Like just about everything else frame and border styles come in and go out of fashion. …The reflection might be considered the modern day equivalent of the drop shadow …popular in the 1990's. Perhaps the best advice I can give …regarding frame treatments is not to overwhelm your photographs with graphic tricks. …You'll want your photo book to last, and what looks cool and cutting edge today …
