I Use Affinity or PSE for all of my editing. Occasionally, an image will "need" a frame finish it off; I used to use Picasa. but alas I cannot find a suitable replacement for this function on my MacBook. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I use Affinity Photo for almost all my editing, including frames. Search "Affinity Photo frame" on youtube.com for a variety of methods for creating frames. Most are pretty easy.
Good Luck!

They don't do the free one anymore.

This is one that was created by on1 and was free from them for a long time. They have discontinued it.. I am not responsible for any of the links or downloads and you should be careful and have antivirus software installed BUT. I have clicked on the below link and verified it has no viruses according to virustotal.com (you should use this on any link pasting in it in the URL. Any files you download you should scan those files with virus total) and I have scanned the file photoframe_4.6.3_free.zip and it is free of viruses.

https://photoframe-free.software.informer.com/4.6/

After the first page click on the link that says Latest Version: 4.5.6 see all click on this link and no others , I have not tested them all.

It is photoframe 4.6 and has good reviews though older. This is only for PC.

Use virus total make sure you are not downloading viruses onto your computer. If you decide to download Picasa from the poster above make sure you scan any link and the file itself with virustotal.com

If you're up for a mini-challenge, take a look at this topic:
https://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-588788-1.html#10086817

The "action" file to download to your computer is the link below the opening photos. I tried it back when posted, using PS Elements 2018. It's easy if you take your time

I, too, am interested in this topic. I am still using Picasa, but would like to upgrade. I have found a few things that work on a PC, but not a Mac, which I use.

I clicked on that link and got the Mac download (see below). Maybe it changes, based on the platform you're using when you view the page?

I'm pretty sure it does. It knew I was running 64-bit Windows.
However, I wasn't actually able to download a 64-bit version of Picasa. It sent me to a Google site that said Picasa had been replaced by Google Photo.

Right now I have 32-bit Picasa 3.9.

You were braver than I. I would not attempt to download software from a third-party site. I see now the page says "updated six years ago"
