FrameShop is a script for Adobe Photoshop designed to give the photographer/artist a variety of mat and frame styles for displaying digital images on the Web.

  • Watermark as a signature option
  • Localized script versions for Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch and German language versions of Photoshop
  • Fixed a batch mode bug that used the EXIF date and GPS coordinates from the first image for all the images in the batch

FrameShop Script v1.0.0 for Photoshop CC and CS6

FrameShop is a script for Adobe Photoshop designed to give the photographer/artist a variety of mat and frame styles for displaying digital images on the Web. The previous version of the FrameShop script (v0.9.7) was described in detail in an earlier post on this blog. This new version (v1.0.0) runs on Photoshop CC and CS6, and has new features and improvements:

  • Batch mode
  • Smart Sharpen and Unsharp Mask sharpening methods
  • EXIF tag “Focal Length in 35mm Film”
  • Four date formats for “Date taken”
  • Default selection of IPTC title, caption and copyright notice fields
  • Simplified save options

The FrameShop script dialog box is organized so that each option can be selected and customized independently, using a tabbed dialog.

The dialog is displayed in the default Color Theme for Adobe Photoshop CC, chosen in Adobe Photoshop’s Preferences/Interface… menu. Here’s an example of what the script can do, showing the various FrameShop elements that are referenced in this guide.

For those who are familiar with Adobe Photoshop and using scripts, or for those who have used earlier versions of the FrameShop script, the following detailed guide to FrameShop options can be skimmed or skipped entirely. The script is easy to use and the settings/options are easy to “play with” without damaging any pixels. If you’re unfamiliar with using scripts in Adobe Photoshop, read the following guide and you’ll be on your way. The major changes from the previous version are highlighted in green.

FrameShop Script v0.9.5 for Photoshop CS5 & CS6

Update (May 7, 2016): A newer version of the FrameShop script is now available for Photoshop CC 2015 and CS6. I highly recommend using the newer version if you are running either CC 2015 or CS6.

FrameShop is a script for Adobe Photoshop designed to give the photographer/artist a variety of mat and frame styles for displaying digital images on the Web. The initial version of the FrameShop script (v0.9) was described in detail in an earlier post on this blog. This new version (v0.9.5) runs on Photoshop CS5 and CS6, and has several new features:

  • Colors are selected using the Adobe Color Picker rather than color presets
  • Text positions are set by default to EXIF left, Title center and Signature right, all on the mat under the image
  • GPS latitude, longitude and elevation have been added to the selectable EXIF text items
  • Result can be saved as JPEG, TIFF, PSD, PNG or GIF
  • Result can be saved with the same ICC profile as the original file or another profile
  • Script runs on a duplicate of the original image and leaves the original image open after running

I have not tested the script with the Adobe Creative Cloud version of Photoshop (yet).
Update (September 9, 2013): The FrameShop script (v0.9.5) has been successfully tested with Adobe Photoshop CC.

Adding EXIF with Adobe® Lightroom® 3 and LR/Mogrify 2

In a post about two years ago, I wrote a tutorial on the use of Adobe Lightroom 2 and Timothy Armes’ LR2/Mogrify plug-in to add EXIF information to an image processed for the Web. Since that tutorial was written, Lightroom has been updated to Lightroom 3 and LR2/Mogrify has been updated to LR/Mogrify 2.

This tutorial is an update, providing complete illustrated instructions for using Lightroom 3 and LR/Mogrify 2 to add EXIF data to an image processed for the Web. LR/Mogrify 2 works on both PCs and Macs, but on a PC, you must install ImageMagick first. These instructions are written from the perspective of a Mac user, but the PC process is almost identical. For those who would prefer to use Adobe Photoshop to perform this function, the PrintEXIF and FrameShop scripts, available free on this website, are good alternatives.

PrintEXIF v4.0 – Automatic Lens ID

I’ve incorporated automatic lens identification into the latest version of the PrintEXIF script. Previous versions have required either the selection of a Nikon or Canon lens from a drop-down menu or entering a lens description manually. In v4.0 I’ve taken advantage of the fact that most modern DSLRs write the lens information to the image file’s metadata. The user interface now shows the lens ID in the dialog box, if it is available in metadata, and lets the user choose to use that ID or enter the ID manually in a text box.

PrintEXIF Script v3.0

PrintEXIF, a Photoshop script that started as an adaptation of a script I found on a DPReview forum, has taken on a life of its own. For those unfamiliar with PrintEXIF, the script was written (in JavaScript) to prepare an image for display on the Web by “framing” the image and “printing” its EXIF information (shooting data) into the bottom of the frame. Why do this? When photographs are posted on photography forums, forum readers frequently ask, “What aperture and shutter speed did you use?”, “What ISO?”, “Which lens and what focal length?” You get the idea. So to answer those questions, PrintEXIF can be used to put that information into the photograph itself.

PrintEXIF and GalleryFrame Scripts for Adobe® Photoshop® CS3

The PrintEXIF and GalleryFrame scripts have now been updated to work in Adobe® Photoshop® CS3. Actually, the GalleryFrame script worked in CS3 but I had not updated the installation instructions to reflect the CS3 folder hierarchy. PrintEXIF took a little more work. Either or both scripts can be installed in the Program Files>Adobe>Adobe Photoshop CS3>Presets>Scripts folder (Windows) or Applications>Adobe Photoshop CS3>Presets>Scripts folder (Mac OS X). The current versions are PrintEXIF v2.1 and GalleryFrame v1.0.

PrintEXIF Script

PrintEXIF is a script for Adobe® Photoshop® that automates the presentation of shooting information (EXIF) for either a photo that is targeted for the Web or a photo that will be printed. PrintEXIF creates a frame around the photograph and “prints” shooting information – EXIF data – in the bottom of the frame. It uses both standard EXIF data and data that has been recorded in the IPTC Caption field by Nikon Transfer.
