Thanks for including the mat & frame preview feature - its great!

A thought - would it be possible to enable the user to add his/ her own frames? ie take a picture of a frame edge that we have and load it as a jpeg into the frames folder and have it automatically tiled to surround a picture?

Andy, in the Frame tab you can Open Frame Image and there are already some TIFFs included.
I do not see any reason why you should not be able to create such a image yourself.
Load the image and it will be available in the Color/Image dropdown list.

To do this you need to photograph a section of the left edge of the frame (the edge that runs from the bottom left to the top left corner. The section needs to be cropped so that it fills the image and adjusted if necessary so that it tiles seamlessly with itself, so if there is a pattern you need to make sure you crop it so that it repeats without a discontinuity. Once you have the image you can open it and select it from the Frame tab - make sure you use scale to fit.
