additional frames similar to device frames - for wider use of images in context (book covers, tablets, photo frame, signs, etc.)

Those are some "Great" assets Dubie.

A lot of them are 3,000 x 3,000+ pixels of quality.
For some reason,Winzip considered the file to be protected and wouldn't open it.So I right clicked it and opened it with Internet explorer.

I didn't need the MAC operating system images.So I coped and pasted the Windows folder onto another Hard Drive. I had to Skip a couple of files and then switched to "Skip all" to complete the process.
The folder became unusable at that point.Even by internet explorer.Maybe a virus scanner issue?


Anyway, I downloaded the file again.
Reopened it and copied and pasted the folder to another with success. I'm only adding all this information, in case this happens to someone else.There really nice Device frames.With enough of a border, to use easily.


Group an Image or video along with the Device Frame. Add you can easily animate the device frame into view.
Like the one below with Scale,Rotation and Position.


This is a basic enough animation, that unless it's requested.I won't be providing more details into how to create the animation.But will if asked.

I to liked that they are of good quality and for being png's they scale quite nicely.

I use to use winzip also but found that 7zip was much better and easy to use.

It pretty much opens anything and also does a good job of compressing files with many options for the compression.

It's not WinZip's fault. It's the file and who created/named the images.

They used Slashes and Quotation marks a lot. I'd say with a good 30 images. So with incorrect file names, you have to give special permission for those images. Before WinZip will 1-Click unzip. It's actually a corrupted zip file creating the problem.



Windows Explorer opened the file more easily. But if you wanted to save it to a destination.Same problem.


I'm running a 2014 version of WinZip. So there may or may not be some improvements with the newer versions.
I Love  1-Click Unzip,it's about as simple as it gets.I don't create complex zip folders or utilize all the features WinZip offers.I seriously doubt many people do.
Adding encryption to a Zip is probably about the only other feature most Zip File creators actually need.

I've used 7zip in the past, then immediately renewed my license with WinZip.
I didn't care for it much.This was also long ago. I suspect it's improved over the years.

I was just taking a guess it might be something with winzip.

I didn't have a problem when I extracted the zip and I didn't and don't see any of the file names the way you show them.

They simply have a underscore in the name

Strange indeed.
But you got it figured out. Glad for that ;)

Hey hope your Thanksgiving was a good one.
