I like simulators such as the MAToMATIC at http://www.matshop.com/

It allows one to select:

a) the type of frame
b) width of the frame
c) type of mat
d) color of mat
e) size of mat
f) mat bottom weighted or not
g) single or double mat
h) wall color
i) the most important: download your photo and try it in the frame

It is free and no obligation to buy.

Improvements I would like to see:
a) larger view
b) a comparator (like lightboxes where you can see several photos simultaneously to help you select the best one)
c) a stand-alone application I could install on my computer, so no need to downsample and download my photos

What is yours?
