Shapify Stack ...

shapify

DK just released a new and interesting image-masking stack called Shapify.
If you need round, hexagonal or dodecagonal images on your page you now have a quick 'n dirty method of producing them without bothering Photoshop.
I checked out the stack today and this is what I found:

shapify-menu

What it does: 
Shapify places a mask over the center of your image. 

The mask can be circular or polygonal.
A polygon can be four, six or twelve sided.
The hexagon can be displayed with a flat surface at the top or a corner [Up-Hex].
The image is automatically a link and is copy-protected.



What it doesn't:
The stack does not show you a preview on the edit page, so the results can be a bit hit and miss.
The stack is not responsive - I personally would prefer a max/min size.
It does not handle image scaling logically.
E.G. I defined a circular Shape Height of 300 px and dragged in an image that was 2950 x 2094 px, wanting to see if it would be cropped or reduced in size (Image Scale is automatically set to 100%). To my astonishment, the image was tiled!
I had to scale the image to 200% to get it to fit in my mask. An image that has 300 px height, however, fits perfectly at 100%.
Overall impression: If you need a quick image mask on a static page, great solution.
