Matting is harder than I thought

I bought 12 frames for the photography show, starting next week, that my pictures will be in. I thought I was clever and bought nice wood frames with a wood matting already inside. Woe is me, though. My 8X10's are exactly the size of the hole and lining it up without showing the white strip around the edge of each photo is near impossible.

I've got 5 hours to fool with 11 more and git um straight. We'll see.

Good luck with it. Can't you use colored marker to blend the white around the picture with the matte color?

I keep on reading this as 'Mating'.

Yes Suzie, mat(t)ing is an extremely complicated and tricky business.
