Every picture posted in a space (except for two, and we’ll identify them below) has either a standard or a custom frame around it to enhance its appearance.
A default black frame (see the below image) is automatically assigned to any image that is placed directly on a wall.
At any time after placement you can change the black frame to one of these other standard frame options (all of them are free):
Light Wood (see image at right)
Orange Plastic (see image at right)
Contemporary Brown Metal
Contemporary Black Metal
No Frame (the only standard frame option without a visible border)
You can change a standard frame’s appearance any time you wish, but if you remove the photo from the room, whatever frame currently assigned to it also disappears.
If you place that photo again later, you will start with the default black frame.
Note that you are not able to place an empty standard frame in a living space.
Custom frames differ from standard frames in the following ways:
They can be placed in a living space without first assigning pictures to them
Custom desktop frames can be scaled in all three dimensions
A custom frame cannot be replaced/exchanged without first removing (i.e., returning it to its media bin) any photo added to it
Custom frames are premium products - they can be purchased within the game
The following styles of custom frames are available:
Multiframe (desktop) - 3 and 4 photo options
Metal Single frame (wall)
Plastic single frame (wall)
Wood single frame (wall)
Multiframe (wall) - 3, 5, and 8 photo options
Custom canvas (frameless)
To add a picture to a custom frame, simply drag it from a media bin, a placed standard frame, or from another custom frame in the same room over the custom frame and release it.
It will snap in place at the destination location.
In the pictures at right and above, you can see examples of how photos look displayed in several of the available custom frames.
