There are several ways to go about this. What I usually do is this:

I add the frame to my canvas and then add the picture behind it and resize it how I like. Then I click on my frame layer and click inside the area that the picture should be. Then I Select>Modify>Expand and expand the selection by 2 pixels. Then with the dancing ants still around the area, I click on my picture layer and then go Select>Inverse and then hit the delete button.

Let me know if you need screen shots. I have PSE 5.0 on my computer.

I can do that as long as the picture is square..how would you do that for a circle frame, etc. ?

For circle frames, I use my cutout tool in a circle shape, then place it behind the frame and resize. then I use my eraser tool, making sure that I have selected the layer I want to erase. and erase anything that is sticking out from behind the frame. Then I link the layers together.

OK, here is how I do it. Like I said there are many ways to go about it.

First I open both the frame and the picture and add them to my canvas, with the frame on top of the picture.



Then I use the magic wand tool and select inside the frame, where I want my picture to show through.



Then I go to my layers palette and select my picture layer.



Then I expand my selection by a couple of pixels. This is a personal preference, but I think it prevents the photo from looking jagged under the frame.

Go to Select>Modify>Expand.



And I use 2 or 4, depending on how wide the frame is.



Then I invert the selection so that what is outside the frame is selected. To do that go to Select>Inverse



Then the final step is to hit your delete key on your keyboard. And this is the final result.
