Unframed Originals

If you want your image to look like an original painting hanging on the wall without a frame, set your Mat and Frame Widths to 0 (zero).

Custom Frames

Same as above, if you have your own custom frame, be sure to include it in your uploaded image and set your Mat and Frame Widths to 0 (zero).

Floater Frames

If you want your image to look like it's in a thin metal or canvas floater frame, set your Mat and Frame Widths to between 0.125 to 0.25 and the Mat Colour to one of the darker gray presets.
