A picture frame is one way to quickly add character to an image without having to go through an extensive editing process. What's even more helpful are PNG picture frames, especially ones that already have the middle cut out for you so that all you have to do is lay the frame over the picture to get the full effect.

These free picture frame PNGs were created using grayscale masks combined with layer styles for Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. The frames are transparent and are 800x600 pixels. They'll work in most image editing, illustration, presentation, and page layout software.

To use one of these picture frame images, the photo that will go with the frame has to be behind/under the PNG so that the transparent portion will reveal the photo below it. You can do that with any image editor that supports layers.
