Is it for display on a Web page, or on some other media? What media?

Aha. Check out Microsoft’s free download, Windows Movie Maker, if you’re using a PC. Here’s a short video opn its basics. You can add a frame using its Title Overlay feature.

iMovie 08 will do this. Unfortunately it doesn’t work in newer versions.

I also believe Adobe AfterEffects will do that, but I don’t know how… Sorry I can’t help you further!
