Borders and Frames
ON1 Photo RAW 2019 has a large collection of pre-made borders and edges that you can add to your photos. These borders range from classic film borders to viewfinders to artistic effects to emulsion transfers and many more. The Borders filter also has an extensive set of controls for manipulating the size, color, and blending mode of the borders you choose.
To add a border/frame, access the Effects tab from the Edit module. The Effects tab has 27 filter types, added either by the Add Filter button found at the top of the Effects tab:
Or via the Filters pane on the left side of the window:
You can apply filters in any order, and you can have more than one instance of a filter in the stack.
The Category and Border pop-ups at the top of the pane are used to select the border category and the specific borders within each category. There are 8 built-in categories, sorted by type. Any user imported borders will also appear in this list.
The Transform section at the bottom of the Borders pane lets you scale the border up or down in size, to help you get the look you’re after, and the Fit Image slider adjusts the size of the image under the border. You can rotate or flip the currently selected border by clicking the buttons at the bottom of the screen.
Once you have chosen a border to add, you can adjust its blending mode and opacity, and, if the border has color, you can adjust its hue, saturation, and brightness. Alternatively, if the border is black or white, you can colorize it.
To remove a border, press the X on the top-right corner of the border filter layer:
You can import your own borders, either directly into the Borders filter pane, or via the Extras Manager (available in Browse). Border files need to be a standard PNG file type with a large central transparent area.
