I have an image (white background with text) that is 800w x 200h (pixels).

I paste the image into Image Tricks and apply a border, but how do I make the border fit the image size. It appears the borders have only one size?!

Hi Robo,

There is no way to automatically resize the frame to the image. Each frame has the fixed size. Images that don't fit frames are cropped.

Mmmm, so that means the frames are a fixed size? I would be nice if they could be adjusted...

Yes, frames are fixed size (aspect ratio) images. To fit a frame to an image, the program would have to distort this frame.

Mmmmm, I guess the frame could be vectorized, but that is hard work I guess...

Vectorizing the frames we have will hugely increase their size. This doesn't seem to be reasonable.

Where are the files for these borders? I have ITPro but cannot find them in the /Library/App Support/BeLight folder. Can I take say 'butterflies' and drop it into an SP document, to crop/colour/etc as I want?

The frames and borders are inside the application bundle.

To take butterflies to SP, you can open a completely white image in IT, apply the border and save. Then add the saved image to a document in SP.
