How to create mat/double mat as a template?
May 1, 2013

Hi,

I'd like to create a mat/double mat and put it in a template or something so that i can just add/attach picture to.  What i mean is that i have a bunch of 12x18 pictures and it will be time consuming if i do mat/frame for every single pic.

Any tutorial, video , or link would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Photograph some mats and save the images as .psd files.

If it can be assumed that all the pics you want to Frame this way are the same size to start with, it seems a good and easy solution would be to make an Action..or if necessary find an Action that gives the Frame you want, then adjust it if necessary for the dimensions you want .. then just make sure that all the pics you want to Frame are in one folder and do a Batch Action on each pic - using the pre-set Frame Action..  ??

Apart from a Frame Action of various types/styles I also have and use sometimes a rather nice Frame SCRIPT that is loaded into my CS and with which you can very easily do a big variety of Frames to suit any pic you choose.  MAY be a little bit less easy to run on a Batch (never tried it that way) but it's excellent to produce a varied Frame in sizes and color ..  sample here ..

Drop Shadows and Bevels can be chosen if you wish to have the Frame with those ...

I have an action for CS6 which creates a double mat as shown below.  Should you be interested, drop me a private message, will gladly share.

Hi PaulinDE,

Sorry it took a while to get back forum. And yes, i'd like to have action if you can share. It looks really nice and similar to what i'm looking for even though i just need a single mat.

thanks.
