Created this frame in Painter - used this PNG frame to give a painterly edge to photos so they do not look so formal. See my blog for more information at [link]. Note that by clicking Download Image, then right-clicking and choosing Save Image As (it will be a PNG), the transparency is left intact so the frame can be placed correctly in your image.

You can create a nice subtle texture on the frame. Add a Bevel and Emboss Layer Style to the PNG frame layer. Check the Texture box and select one to add a little texture to the frame (my Digital Lady Syd's Smudge Texture actually looks pretty good on it - open texture and go to Edit -> Create a Pattern and it will appear at the end in your Texture Pattern drop-down list in the layer style). Now Adjust the Depth and Scale. In the Bevel and Emboss dialog box, uncheck Use Global Lighting, set size to 0 or 1, and adjust Highlight Mode and Shadow Mode opacities to get the effect you want.
