my request is nothing very advanced (the way I think it should be done at least).
I blog for a business, and part of "keeping the style throughout" is applying a specific frame. That frame comes from iLife's Keynote (it's a standard picture frame we apply to most pictures).
The crappy thing about that frame is that on the sides and edges, it's not transparent. If it were, my issues would be long resolved.
What I want to do: I want to be able to apply that frame (on photoshop or wherever) to any picture, without having to worry about the aspect ratio. I suppose I have to create my own template out of that frame. I don't want to distort the pixels, so I also guess I would have to make a somewhat high-res template, too.
Is there any way to at least partly automate the process? create a template that I can use in the future? Ideally I would like to apply the frame without having to do any touch-ups.
