hi gisi,
i believe the main aim would be to make your life as simple as can be, therefor use the same software for framing pics as you use for post-processing, even if that means only resize, sharpen, etc. - if possible.
stay well,
dora

I tend to use Photofiltre (www.photofiltre.com). It's very easy and simple to use.

If you use Photoshop to edit your pictures, I would suggest just increasing the canvis size. I usually do this proccess last. I resize my pictures to my final size, sharpen, then increase the canvis by 50 pixels in white, then about 100 pixels in black.

Helicon Filter also has a lot of useful (and good) PP features, and does very nice borders.

(I rarely use borders but I'm testing the software, so I played with it a little, and was impressed by what it can do.)

While some frames add to the image, many distract the view of the image. Also, the terms of service on TE say that you are only allowed use plain frames.
