Need a quick mat? No problem. Just click on a texture, pick a core color and thickness, and “Create New Mat”. Then use Photoshop's Marquee or Shape tools to cut openings in the mat in whatever size or shape you need!

Want a mat that can be automatically filled as a template for Proofs & Prints? Create your mat and then use “Make P&P Group” to create mat openings based on your selection or Shape! It really is that simple.

Already have your images placed and need to dress it up? Create a mat and cut openings for all of your images with a single click!

Please note that the proper spelling of this design tool is "Eazy Mats" and not "EZMats".
