The frame along with its mounts protects and often complements the artwork. Art work framed well will stay in good condition for a longer period of time. Many painters and photographers who work with canvas “gallery-wrap” their artwork, a practice wherein the image extends around the edges of the stretched canvas and therefore precludes use of a decorative picture frame. As picture frames can be expensive when purchased new, some people remove pictures from a frame and use the frame for other pictures
Picture frames are generally square or rectangular, though circular and oval frames are not uncommon. Frames in more unusual shapes(often appropriately colored) are usually frames intended for photographs, such as heart-shaped frames to go around wedding pictures and the like, and there have been shaped shadowboxes made, though these have generally been used to roughly follow the outlines of sports jerseys and other memorabilia rather than pictures. There are also picture frames designed to go around corners. A popular design is the scoop, an indent in the frame adding depth.
