Zenfolio Abstract Photo Gallery | How to buy from Artist C Ribet 6

Add to Cart Unveils Numerous New Options - including custom framing where it applies

Clicking the 'Add to Cart' button gives us the option to 'Preview and Configure' which allows us to perform actions such as our own cropping, custom framing and matting with the online framing tool, customization of greeting cards etc.

We will hit 'Preview and Configure':

Conformation and Preview Ask

We come to the most powerful (and most confusing) page in the configuration process where we can select from a wide variety of options as well as crop and adjust the image if we choose:

Porthos Zenfolio Edit Photo

Click once to open the small dialog for 'Mount and Frame' and start the framing and matting tool. The options for Paper Type are the same as we saw already (color, metallic, black and white). We selected 'Color' before and that is reflected in the Paper Type menu overlay text. For prints of animals and furry critters like Porthos, the default E-Surface color paper is usually best. However, for C Ribet Dewscapes / Mizzlescapes the Metallic Paper prints often are very dramatic and have a unique 3D enhancement from the Metallic Paper print process. Color Conversion is to convert to Black and White or Sepia (the buttons on top of the image also do the same thing). The generic 'Options' menu text give you options for paper coating or texturizing. Do not forget to check the C Ribet Fine Art Coupon and Promotional Codes page to see if there may be applicable coupons or special discounts on art in your cart (or discounts on your entire order and special offers such as free shipping).

We will click the 'Add one now...' link to start the online framing and matting tool:

We now get the Framing and Matting options dialog filling up the right of the screen:
