Facebook is testing Frames for Photos & Videos



Facebook keeps releasing new tools and features for users.  A couple of days ago, a new ‘Year in Review’ feature was launched by the company that let users create a video having all the posts, likes, etc. this year. Now, the company is testing a new tool that will let users add frames to their photos and videos. It seems Facebook and Instagram are trying to have Snapchat like effects. You can go to Facebook Camera Effects page to check this latest feature. This new tool doesn’t require any technical skill as you only need to upload or choose any frame and then apply it to your photos or videos.

  • Make a frame in your favorite design tool. Create a PNG with a transparent background for each element.
  • Upload your art to Facebook. Arrange each item on the canvas to compose your frame.
  • Preview how your frame will look in different sizes. Photos and videos can be square, portrait and landscape.
  • Fill out details about your frame. Then submit your frame for review, which typically takes up to a week.
  • Once your frame has been approved and activated, people can add it to photos and videos they share on Facebook.
  • Once your frame has been approved and activated, people can add it to photos and videos they share on Facebook.

There are two types of frames included in this new feature – Location frames and General frames. The location frames can be used to represent different places, landmarks, etc. On the other hand, the General frames are simple frames that can be used for events, festivals, etc. The company has said that the US and some other countries will get this new feature soon, but it is not yet sure when it will be made available globally. In any case, what do you think about this new feature? Do let us know via the comments section. And don’t forget to read the Blog Commenting Guide.  Cheers 🙂
