Frame

On this page

Add borders and effects around your images by applying the frame option. Frames can have different styles, from a plain solid color around the image to styles that bring elements of the image into the frame.

Demo

Frame style

'frame.style' - sets the type of frame that surrounds the image. Acceptable values are 'solid', 'mirror', 'edge', 'dither', 'none'. The default value is 'solid'.

Example image with solid black frame

'mirror' - creates a "silvered" semi-opaque frame around the image, allowing some of the image to be seen underneath. The underlying image is a mirror reflection of the nearby image.

'edge' - creates a "silvered" semi-opaque frame around the image, and blurs the edges of the image underneath the frame.

'dither' - creates a "silvered" semi-opaque frame around the image, and "feathers" the image under the frame.

Frame color
