So I use Lightroom very frequently to edit and export images. I do nightclub photography often and have been asked to put a frame around my photos. Obviously a creative frame, not just a white or black one. So id like to design a frame basically and then be able to batch all photos with the same frame. Now my question is : what program would be the best to do this with? I need 100+ images done with the same frame.


  • there's dozens and dozens of 'frame' plugins for PhotoShop that could be automated. I'd start with google. – DA01 Jan 20 '15 at 19:49
  • @Josh Ping: Photoshop is alright for this and you can use stock picture frames if you want, and use the suggestion of mrserge below to apply them. If you purchase stock images/graphics with sets of frames, you can get some in vector and they'll be easy to use individually in Photoshop. But you could also draw your frames in Illustrator; there's already some borders with textures or patterns available with it. They're very basic but that's a start if you don't like installing plugins or don't want to buy stock images/graphics. – go-junta Jun 20 '15 at 8:35

if you have same dimensions for all your photos, you can record Action in Photoshop and then run the action to all images.

  • And if they aren't the same size, you can make an action to fix that too ;) – Manly Oct 22 '14 at 19:31
  • But it won't make accurate work - cropping shold not be automatic if you want meaningful result. – mrserge Oct 22 '14 at 19:43
  • I didn't mean to crop, I meant just to resize, assuming the images were already cropped. Obviously there is not way to batch crop, that takes a human's eye. – Manly Oct 22 '14 at 19:46
  • +1 Run the action to all images: I would add to your suggestion to go even faster, do a "automate / batch" with that action! – go-junta Jun 20 '15 at 8:30
