I used Photoshop Elements 4 for many years and upgraded to 10 about a year ago; I recently downloaded Photoshop CS6 for the trial period. In my projects I regularly use the ready-made frame and border designs that are available in the “content” section of PSE. I thought that a more extensive program like CS6 would offer a larger variety of ready-made frames, but I have been unable to find any at all. I’ve checked the Adobe help pages, the CS6 user manual, and also googled for information; I’ve found tutorials on how to create frames but nothing about any ready-made designs. Are they not offered as part of CS6? Thank you in advance for your help. (PC, Win7 OS, PS CS6 vers. 13.0 x64)
No, not "offered as part of CS6".
Photoshop is a pro-level application geared to power-user type of professionasl who want full control over their work.
You can download many third-party ready-made actions to do frames and borders, however.
Thank you all for the information. (I never would have found those frame options without your screencap, R_Kelly.) Having worked with PSE for so many years, the concept of “action sets” is completely new to me, as are many other features of CS6. I can see I have a significant learning curve ahead of me, but it seems that once I learn it, CS6 will offer me much more flexibility in my designs. In the meantime, it’s good to know there are ready-made options available for download; JJMack, I can just imagine the many hours you have put into the packages you are making available, so I appreciate the link.
I’ve never posted in this forum before, and I have to say the quick and informative response to my question is very impressive. Thanks again.
