All "Frame" filters cut images. It's possible to fit image by using some of snippets from the FF library, but You'll have problems with non-square images and also need to adjust frame width or image width separately for each other as they are independent.
So, I would like to see a "Fit Image" (or "Fit Content") control in the "Frame" component which will allow to change image's size and automatically adjust frame's width.
Another thing. Even with this option inserted image always will have changed size (shrinked), so I would like also to be able to make a frame AROUND the image without need to distort original image.
And finally - this option MUST work properly with NON-SQUARE images!

Silent. All the week... I'm thinking - what does it mean?
1) Everything is working fine. What are you talking about?
2) It's not interesting! Because non-square images aren't popular.
3) Nobody knows how to do this. It's impossible.
4) It's already done, and all users have it. Only you missed it. Update your filters.
5) Relax, Constantin! - "Photo" and "Frame" category is not your territory.
6) Your English is awful - We haven't understood a word! Try to explain on Russian, please!

----Naw, the frame component crops pictures, but some/most real world frames do that too, so it's a minor issue.
----As far as the normal types of pictures that get framed, this is most definitely not the case ha-ha.
----I did it for a fisheye lense filter I was working on, but it wasn't 100% perfect since I used range limiting and made the frame with profgrads, and wasn't going to be hitting *random* with it so didn't worry that it wasn't perfect.
----That's possible. I'm not really into frames either, so I haven't kept up with what people are doing with them.
----Well, not yet at least eh.
----If anything, it's more #2 on the forums here, ie = mostly texture fans, not frame-a-holics ha-ha.

In theory, this could be made. It would be rather complex an affair for non-square and I have a suspicion it would fall apart when you made the frame dimension more than 50% of the image dimension. Unfortunately I don't have that much use for frames, so I doubt I'll be attempting to make a filter that does this. But if you feel adventurous, there is that Proportional Gradient Snippet that is half the answer...

Hope to see this function in the next version and surprised that this idea wasn't supported by anyone.
I feel, and as far as possible I'll make it by fixing one of my filters and adding new works. But if someone will do it before me - very good.

constantin, if i'm understanding your request correctly, i agree. there shld be a 'frame starting from outer dimensions of image' type component.
you can simulate this, however. i have a filter (somewhere) where i combined a frame to one of the magnify/shrink snippets and you can in that way fit the entire image within any frame. i never really checked to see if it worked for non-square, though.
If wishes were horses... there'd be a whole lot of horse crap to clean up!
