Now I am not talking about the physical mounting of the pictures once you have a frame. I am talking about designing the pics themselves for printing and designing the frame to surround them so that the art looks the most professional. This is definitely a overall newbie question: are there any rules I should follow in framing artwork? I know how to frame my shot for a decent online presentation, but after ordering some picture and trying to frame them the way they appear online I realize I am doing something wrong. Here is an example of the end product courteously www.americanframes.com Even if I have a black frame it still looks a bit off. I feel like the Photoshop border may be a bit much when framed with an additional mat, but the only two option I see to help are: 1) Get rid of the frame's mat but the overall presentation looks bad 2) Get rid of the pictures border do I sign and title on the mat itself (my handwriting is not presentable, but I guess I can find someone's who is). Thanks guys!
