Ratings and Reviews

Excelent App. Worth the money.

I always read the low reviews before downloading an app. What I saw was a lot of people wanting somethine for nothing. Good software can’t be free. I tried the free version and it proved it would sute my needs. I ended up buying the full $70 version and very glad I did. I have gottem more complements on my posting of photos using ImageFramer. It is easy to use and the results are amazing. I can export my projects in multipule formats and print from any image viewer. I usually import my projects into FaceBook or use them in emails. This app is a good example of you get what you pay for. Don’t be so cheap if you want good results.

Almost there.


This is a terrific app if you want to display your online art in a professional manner. Its easy to use and displays well also. If there is any drawback it would be that there are not enough realistic options for framing various mediums. I would like to see a “set” dedicated to watercolor, to include a larger variety of frames. It doesn’t appear that this app is updated, thus, the limited collections. If ImageFramer wanted to take this to the “next” level they may work closer with the framing manufacturers, to include an option to estimate framing sizes and possibly costs.
