Spruce Up Your Digital Photos with 10 Free Frames

10 Free Frames to Spruce Up Your Digital Photos. © S. Chastain

Let's face it – photos look best in frames, even digital photos. Here's a collection of 10 free frames you can add to your images. They were created using free grayscale masks combined with layer styles for Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. The frames are transparent PNG files at a size of 800 x 600 pixels. They'll work in most image editing, illustration, presentation and page layout software. Simply place your photo as a separate object or layer behind the frame so it shows through the transparent center portion.

Learn how to create your own frames like this with my summer splash frame tutorial. Click through the pages to see a larger image of each frame and to download.

Please refer to my terms of use explained in the last step before using these images
