Personally, I just make the frame a little bigger than the picture. So far, 
this works for me and it lots easier than playing with the contour lines. 
Just be sure free scaling (under image) is chosen.
Fail to learn history-repeat it.
Fail to learn rights-lose them.
Learn both-get screwed by previous two groups.
