Adding Frames/Pictures/Effects to photos? - 22-02-12, 04:50 PM

Hi all,

Just wondered if anyone could tell me what free programme I can use to add nice frames or effects etc to my pictures?
I had downloaded Picasa but that doesn't have a frame or stickers facility so not what I was after.
I have seen a couple of great sites and just found one really good one but on further reading you have to pay for the privilege! And to be able to use the pictures on my website should I wish to (not that I might but you never know) it would cost around £10 a month which I can't afford

Have seen some of you have some great borders and stickers on your pictures in your albums on here as well as coloured text etc so just wondered whether these are ones you have paid for or you have been able to find a site that doesn't charge. And I mean for PC not iPhone.

TIA xx

Can't you just open your photo in "paint" and then open up "Microsoft word" and copy and paste clipart, wordart and coloured text etc from there?
Just a thought - didn't want to be another person to view your thread and run lol! Xxx
