FrameShop – A Framing Script for Adobe® Photoshop®

Update (August 21, 2013): A newer version of the FrameShop script is now available for CS5 and CS6. I highly recommend using the newer version if you are running either CS5 or CS6.

FrameShop is a script for Adobe Photoshop designed to give the photographer a variety of mat and frame styles for displaying digital images on the Web. Unlike the PrintEXIF and GalleryFrame scripts that preceded FrameShop, this script is more versatile and lets the user choose sizes, fonts, text position, colors and styles, offering an (almost) endless number of combinations. Like PrintEXIF, it gives the user the option to display EXIF data in the mat or frame, and like GalleryFrame, it has an option to double the size of the bottom mat dimension (Gallery mat) for a gallery mat style.

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.

Adding EXIF with Adobe® Lightroom® and LR2/Mogrify

Since I’m using Adobe Lightroom more and Adobe Photoshop® less, I’ve been researching ways to add EXIF information to an image processed for the Web in Lightroom, in much the same way that my PrintEXIF script does in Photoshop. If you’re not familiar with the PrintEXIF script, please read some of my earlier blog entries. The best solution that I’ve found so far is Timothy Armes’ LR2/Mogrify plug-in for Lightroom 2. LR2/Mogrify works on both PCs and Macs, but on a PC, you have to install ImageMagick first.

Here’s how to use LR2/Mogrify to add EXIF data to an image processed for the Web. These instructions are written from the perspective of a Mac user, but the PC process is almost identical.

PrintEXIF and GalleryFrame Scripts and Adobe® Photoshop® CS4

I have updated and tested the PrintEXIF script (v3.1) to work in Adobe Photoshop CS4, and have tested the GalleryFrame script (v2.0) to confirm that it works in CS4.

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.
