I'm looking for new eyeglass frames and want some new ideas for what to look for. My prescription is -9.00 SPH, -2.25 CYL, ADD +1.00. This places several constraints on what I can wear. The frames need to be small enough that the lenses will not be Coke bottles but need to be tall enough to accommodate the progressives, and I'm a little stumped on ideas for my next pair.

Hi all! For our wedding, we got a disc and rights to all of our photos, but no prints. As the holidays are approaching, we want to get some prints and nice frames to give close family. However, money is tight and we are lazy. What is the cheapest and easiest way to get a dozen or so prints and frames in standard sizes, at a quality level somewhere above we-bought-everything-at-the-dollar-store? Thanks!

What's the easiest way to affordably turn some of my photos into framed art for my walls? I'm considering getting six of these 12x12 inch frames from Social Print Studio, each with a single 8x8 print. I like the idea of square frames, and 12x12 seems like a perfect size for building a collection over time... but I'm wondering... is $60 each overpriced? Is there's a better way? [more inside]

What eyeglass frames is (are?) Jacques Greene wearing in Azeelia Bank's "212" video? Still shot here. He's in the video sporadically at around 1:08 but doesn't deviate from the angle in the shot, so I don't know how much help the video will be.

I am trying to frame a large, tall map for my wife's Christmas gift. Normally I just get a RIBBA frame at IKEA, but the print (24" x 42") doesn't fit any of their sizes. I want to matte it at 3" on each side, bringing it to 30" x 48". My goal is to spend ~$100 on the framing, glass and matte boards... is this possible? [more inside]
Photoshop semi-newbie here, using CS5. When I create a rectangular selection on a new layer over a layer with a photo, then apply a stroke to create a simple frame, I'd also like to create a subtle drop shadow that would stay outside the shape. That is, the drop shadow should show up on the outside edges of 2 of the sides of the entire rectangular selection, but not inside the other 2 edges. The drop shadow should not be applied to the stroke itself. [more inside]
When I go to the NBC Olympics site to log in with my cable package details, the iframe that should show the log in fields (username and password) does not load. This is on a win7 machine with both chrome and FF. The problem does not occur on a different computer on the same network (a macbook running 10.6.8). What setting on my computer seems to be blocking this, and how can I get this frame to load? [more inside]

I want to hang some LP covers on a wall, and remember years ago seeing a cheap little kit that was something like four pieces of clear plastic for the corners, connected by an elastic string X-shape in the back that could hang on a nail. The result was a neat frameless effect that I liked, but I can't find it again. Does anyone know what that kit was and where I can buy it? [more inside]
