[4:10 PM] Adds Extensis Photoframe To Online Arsenal
by Staff

Extensis has rolled out the latest edition to their online image editing tools for The new product is called PhotoFrame and it allows users to make edges for their images. According to Extensis:

The Extensis Products Group of, Inc. today introduced its newest e-Service, PhotoFrame Online. With PhotoFrame Online, users can now instantly create a variety of beautifully rendered frame and edge effects for their images directly within a Web browser, without the need to install or configure desktop software. PhotoFrame Online is currently available free to members at

Versatile Effects and Interactive Previews

With PhotoFrame Online, users can build their own custom frame and edges by working from a variety of frames designed by professional artists. These frames can be rotated to any degree and enhanced with a range of effects including blur, color, opacity, and blend modes for both the background and the border. With real-time previews and interactive controls, users can instantly see the results of their changes. When the frame is finished, it can be easily saved to preserve the desired look of the image.

How PhotoFrame Online Works

A hallmark of Extensis e-Services is that they require no file upload. All image processing occurs locally on a customer's own computer, without the installation of any special desktop software, making Extensis e-Services both quick and convenient. This is made possible through a small PhotoFrame Online browser plug-in that is self-installing, self-configuring and self-updating. Because the processing of digital images always takes place on the customer's own machine, document security and bandwidth are not an issue; PhotoFrame Online does not move or copy documents to the PhotoFrame server at any point in the process.

System Requirements

PhotoFrame Online supports both Macintosh and Windows platforms and has been optimized for use with Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer 4.0 or greater. Users can enhance and save JPEG files.

PhotoFrame Online is currently free to members. PhotoFrame 2.0, a Photoshop plug-in with many more features, is available for an estimated street price of $199.95.
