You will almost certainly want to edit the contour line since it is the 
shape of the _frame_. As a side note, you can achieve your goal in a 
different way by free scaling your image in the frame and enlarging the 
frame itself the way you need it.

Did you try to change the basepoint in X, Y, Z to centre?
