Default Creating frames for images

How are you creating/designing framing for your images? Are you using a particular software? Is there a special plugin for PS/PSE?

If this has been addressed, please link me to that thread.

Thanks,

Richard

Why not just use the forum search feature yourself ?

I use Photoshop CS4 myself.

I did, but only found info on actual frames.

Thanks, however, for the suggestion.

I go to a framing shop and get real frames and mattes. I have not found software that can duplicate the elegance and beauty of real frames and mattes. Michaels and Hobby Lobby are good sources for discount supplies, and they also offer framing. I've also ordered from Dick Blick Art Supplies. There are many tutorials online how to do matting and framing yourself, but I either buy precut mattes or have mine cut by the framing store. I've come to a point in my life where I realize that I don't have to master everything, and it's best to leave some tasks to those better trained than me.

If you're intent on doing something digitally, I suggest picking up the David Cross'
.

I also use Lumapix Fotofusion for album design. You can set up templates (or use others other people have created) and/or composite images into intricate designs fairly easily. Some people are using this software to do digital framing, as well.

You may also want to look at the frames and mattes section at Action Central.
