How to Use Frame-A-Face | Optimal Workflow


Frame-A-Face is streamlined and extremely easy-to-use. If you shoot any high-volume jobs, such as schools and sports teams, using Frame-A-Face in your workflow will save you time and money. Frame-A-Face’s facial recognition technology locates the face in an image and then automates the creation of multiple crops for each image.

1. After Frame-A-Face launches, click on the “Load Images” button. Browse to the folder with your batch of images and be sure to select all, using control + a.

2. Once images are loaded and faces detected, use the “Sort” drop-down (located above the image tiles) and choose “No faces or multiple faces detected.”

3. In the image tiles, turn off any box that does not contain a face by clicking on it.

4. Use the add face button to draw a face box (tightly) around any image where a face was not found.

5. Now switch back to “All Images” in the Sort drop-down. This will display all images and detected faces in the batch.

6. Choose an image from the image tiles that is most representative of the batch. For example, one that is centered with good headroom. Click the “Set Crop” button in the original image preview pane.

7. This will be the master crop for the batch. Set the dimensions and use the controls to draw the crop box.

8. Click the “Apply Crop to All Images” button.

9. Scroll through your batch to make sure that the crop has been applied correctly. You make make individual adjustments in the original image preview panel. Adjustments made here will only apply to the selected image (will not apply to batch). The words “CUSTOM CROP” denote that an image has been individually modified.

10. When your batch is ready, click on the “Export Images” button. You will be asked where to save the images and Frame-A-Face will export your images with the crop applied.

TIP: Frame-A-Face can quickly convert your batch to a new crop. After exporting your batch of cropped images, return to the original image you used for the master crop. Select the “Set Crop” button and now change the dimensions (for example 1:1 for ID cards) and redraw the crop box. Click “Apply Crop to All Images.” Frame-A-Face will convert all images to the new crop. You are now ready to export the entire batch, this time, for ID Cards.
