Framing & Matting Border Calculator

This app is best used in conjunction with a LoganĀ® Mat Cutter. It streamlines the mathematics by calculating precisely where to place the parallel mat guide for setting the border widths on where to make your cut.

I Was Framed Picture Framing and Matting Border Calculator assists amateurs, and hobbyists with this tool to make the necessary calculations for any project. You have the choice between the imperial system (inches) and the metric system (centimeters).

This app also provides a customization screen that allows you to play around with the color picker, or enter your own hex code. This is available for either single mat, double mat, or triple mat. Furthermore, each mat displayed will be identified with how thick the matting width is on the front to ensure the width and height of each mat, and artwork mathematically equal the frame dimensions.

Furthering the customization enables you to give permissions for the app to utilize your camera and to access your gallery. You may snap a picture to place in the middle to see if you like the mat colors. Also, you can add a pre-existing image from your gallery to use. Once you find a customization you like you do have the option to save into your gallery for future use.
