How would you like to show any frame or moulding that is available, without actually having them your studio? Imagine placing these frames around your portraits and selecting the correct one with your client. Here's how it works.

The Levin Company has produced the software that will make all this a reality. AUTOFRAME by Levin® will have all of the frames and mouldings from our catalog on a CD ROM, along with wholesale pricing. There will also be a variety of popular mats. You can place all of your specific studio and margin information in the software once and you're ready to go. Next, you would select your own 'gallery' of frames (ones that you sell frequently and are more comfortable using with your portraiture). Now just drag & drop the images you want onto the screen, then drag & drop the correct frames around them, and the program does the rest. It produces an invoice for your customer and a work order at the same time, which can be e-mailed to us for fulfillment. It will also allow you to print out a copy of the finished product, so that your client can approve the purchase. No more buyer's remorse.

You really have to see this software to believe it. The response has been overwhelming. Get your copy of AUTOFRAME by Levin® today and start your 45 day free trial period! Contact us at 800-345-4999 and ask for more details, or email us at .

TIPS AND TECHNIQUES:

November 29, 2004
SLIDE SHOW FEATURE:

Photographers are most likely to influence their customer's buying decision, during the initial presentation of the images. In many cases, it's the first time that their client has seen these pictures, since the joyous event.

Autoframe allows you to set up a slide show of the images, which will run at a variety of speeds (e.g. 1, 2, or 3, seconds..etc). Just go to the SHOW key above your images and click once. You will be able to get a good feeling for which images are their favorites and which show be passed over. In this way, you can focus in on framing various images for wall portraits and suggest gift products for the others.

As their feeling overtake them, your clients will want to buy everything. This tool helps you to organize their thoughts and produces the most revenue in a short session.

November 29, 2004
BACKGROUND FEATURE:

Many photographers have heard the mantra "I don't know how this is going to look in my home?" Now, Autoframe allows you to take an image of the rooms that will have framed wall portraits and use these images as a background to place the new purchases. Just add these images like you would your portraits, but place them in the BACKGROUND DATABASE, rather than the IMAGE DATABASE.

Imagine your customer's surprise, when your place a framed wall portrait on the 'virtual' wall in their den and project the entire image on your screen. Simply add your background image from the BACKGROUND DATABASE and click the PLACE ON WALL feature from the VIEW section on your PROJECT PANEL. There will never be a question about how this will look in the home. However, very often the client will realize that the size they have chosen is too small for the space provided. That will allow you the opportunity to create a larger framed image with a few clicks of the mouse.

Autoframe will automatically resize and re-price the new project and you can place the larger wall portrait on their 'virtual' wall. This could never happen, if you came to their home with a 16x20, and a 24x30 would have been a more appropriate size!

November 15, 2004
COMPARE FEATURE:

After downloading the Version 1.5 in to your computer, you will now be able to view a very important addition to the Autoframe program........the COMPARE feature.

Open your image gallery, so that the images appear on the right side of the screen. Press down on the CONTROL key, and click up to four images. As your click each one, a blue bar will appear around that image. When you are finished, go up to the SHOW key above the images and click the COMPARE feature. You will now have the four images on one screen for your client to view. Press Escape at any time to return to the main screen.

Many photographers have asked for a way to see more than one image on the screen at a time. The COMPARE feature allows you to help your client choose multiple images, and therefore, multiple frames.

November 15, 2004
CROP FEATURE:

Some photographers have asked if the Autoframe program can crop an image, after the frame has been chosen for a specific vertical or horizontal format? Absolutely!

Click on the IMAGE tab at the bottom of the screen. It is in the PROJECT PANEL group of blue boxes. Go to CROP..RATIO CROP/RESIZE..PORTRAIT. Identify the proper size desired on the drop down chart. Use your cursor to position the field. Double click and you will have the new image size, properly framed and priced!

The can save you hours of extra work and allow your client to see a new perspective of the same image instantly!

PANEL FRAMES

The Panel Frames are an excellent way to increase your transaction size, while getting some widespread free advertising. They are great gift ideas, that will be displayed and enjoyed.

The Panel Frame database will allow you to show any one of the 95 items we currently have in our catalog. The only difference between using this database and the frame database, is that the panels need to be chosen one at a time, from the panel database. They cannot be grouped into gallery.

The moulding that we use for our packages are as follows:

LM 700, LM 701, LM 702, LM 703B, LM 704, LM 705
LM 976, LM 1021, LM 1022, LM 1023, LM 1024, LM 1025
278G, 278S, 278B, 899

Any moulding that is not part of these items, will be priced according to the united inch of that product.

These should be grouped into a gallery (perhaps called PANEL MOULDING) and used when you show each panel. You can bring the mouldings that are grouped numerically by opening the MOULDING DATABASE. Then start by CLICKING on the first one, PRESS DOWN AND HOLD SHIFT, then going down to the last one and CLICK. Then add then to your gallery as usual.

As you show and complete each panel, you should save this project. Make sure to identify which panel # you have chosen in the project name. (e.g. Panel #209) Also, due to the way we price our panel packages, the prices identified in Autoframe are greater than the actual price we will charge. We suggest that you use the Panel section for presentation only, and price your panels from our catalog.
