First I dropped this photo of a squirrel onto ImageFramer’s window. I’ve got to tell you, I probably had cat’s reflexes that day — catching a squirrel on a camera is no easy matter.


The photo already has a dark vignette applied to it in Lightroom but I wanted to add some mood there. ImageFramer has some nice monochrome oval frames that can be coloured for the desired effect. These are located in the “Artistic” collection, “Oval” set. I’ve chosen the one named “Chaos”, added it and toned it a bit to a bright warm colour.

I think it brings even more focus to the subject of the photo while adding this frost-like appearance, fitting the snow in the shot.

From here I’ve added three layers of simple colour mats: a dark one, a white and another wider dark over the top. I made the outer mat wider on the bottom side because I wanted to add text there.

Finally, I added a Text Watermark, placed it on the bottom part of the outer mat, selected a font that I liked, changed its colour to white and here’s the final result:

In fact, ImageFramer has a preset template for these poster-like looks and a double-clicking on it will create the design below in a second. Change the text and you’re done.
