Disappointed Frmaer ,

No longer free

I have used this app for quite a while to add simple frames to images before publishing on social media, avoiding the need to add them in PS. However, the recent update has effectively removed the ‘free’ version by adding watermarks to the images. It also removed all the personal templates I had created. Very disappointed, and good as the app was, it’s not worth the £39 required to access standard features without watermarks. One customer lost, who will no longer recommend the app to others.

Love this app!

I downloaded the free version in 2013. The next day I bought the standard version. There’s nothing like seeing your own photos in frames and this is great for trying out ideas for real frames, printing them out and showing to a picture framer “something like this…” It’s also great for embellishing pictures for websites etc. Mostly though, it’s addictive! I often end up with a desktop full of pics…

If there is anything I would like it would be the ability to overlay ‘glass’ to the picture - reflections etc…

Shame they felt they had to add watermarks to the free version recently, but if you find it addictive like me you’ll soon want the paid version anyway...

no longer free???

I downloaded this a few years back and used it extensively to great effect however having not used it for about a year or so opened it up again today to sing its merits to an interested party only to find its no longer free and would have to spend at least £24 to get rid of the watermark.

Very disappointed!
