Borders and frames are 2 different features available in our page editor.
In this article, you'll get to know how they work and which one you should use depending on the situation.
What are borders
Borders are elements which you can put around on photos or blocks of text. Unlike a frame (which works as a placeholder), a border is totally independent which makes it very flexible: you can customize it independently from your text of photo (size, proportions, color, opacity, etc.).
Add a border
01. Use borders for photos
Drag a photo onto your page, resize it and edit it as you wish.
To place a border around your photo, type border in the search bar. Choose your favorite border and drag it onto your page.
Now, click and drag the handles to resize the border. Change its color, layer, opacity and so on.
02. Using borders for text boxes
Click on the Text tab to place a text box on your page. Then, type in your text.
Search for a border and place the one you like on your page. Resize and/or recolor the borders if you wish.
What are frames
Frames are photo holder elements with built-in border or shape features. It's easier to use than a border but also less flexible. For example, you can change it's size, but you can't change its proportions. Instead, you'll have to crop your photo inside it.
Add a frame
To access our Frame elements, open any page and click on the Elements tab on the left. Then, click on the Frames icon and the elements will load.
Click on the frame you want or drag it onto your page. Afterwards, you can resize, rotate or change the frame color by clicking and dragging on the resize/rotate handles or by clicking on the Color button to select the new color.
To place a photo into a frame, simply click and drag it inside the frame element. The photo will “snap” into place inside the Frame. If you’re placing a photo you’ve uploaded, simply go to Uploads and select and drag the one you’ve chosen.
