Image Masking With Shapes in Pages

You can use shapes in Pages to create unusual borders for images. You can get a rounded rectangle border for an images, or even circles, stars and any shape in the Shape tool. You can then use line borders that will conform to the shape to frame the image. This technique can also be used in Keynote and Numbers.

    Marianne: Yes. I did a video on that: Customizing Shapes in Pages, Numbers and Keynote. You can also use the Draw With Pen tool to create from scratch. Insert, Line, Draw With Pen.

    How would you make a border out of shapes, e.g. a border of stars, cats, for a notice?

    Merle: I can't think of an easy way to do that directly in Pages. Just some quick copy and pasting should get you there, though.
