Are ready-made borders/frame designs available in PS CS6?

I used Photoshop Elements 4 for many years and upgraded to 10 about a year ago; I recently downloaded Photoshop CS6 for the trial period.  In my projects I regularly use the ready-made frame and border designs that are available in the “content” section of PSE.  I thought that a more extensive program like CS6 would offer a larger variety of ready-made frames, but I have been unable to find any at all.  I’ve checked the Adobe help pages, the CS6 user manual, and also googled for information; I’ve found tutorials on how to create frames but nothing about any ready-made designs.  Are they not offered as part of CS6? Thank you in advance for your help.  (PC, Win7 OS, PS CS6 vers. 13.0 x64)

    No, not "offered as part of CS6".


    Photoshop is a pro-level application geared to power-user type of professionasl who want full control over their work.


    You can download many third-party ready-made actions to do frames and borders, however.

    There are some frames under Frames in the actions panel.



    About the same ones that were in pse 4

    I knew I had that action set, but I assumed it was something I had downloaded on my own.

    Framing and matting images is expensive so I created some actions to help visualize what your images would look like matted and framed. It a very large download but free
