The Shortcuts app is the new way to use automation on the Mac. Now available on macOS Monterey, Shortcuts first started on iOS.

The action that ImageFramer adds to Shortcuts is “Apply ImageFramer Template”. The template must exist in ImageFramer’s Templates tab and you can select it by name. The name can either be specified in the action or it can be chosen when running the action. The sample Shortcut that applies a template on a selection of images in Finder (available through Quick Actions context menu) allows you to choose the template when the Shortcut is invoked.

Here’s a quick video showing how to create a Template and apply the Action in Finder:
