in trying to print some pictures to put in a frame the misses just bought, it seems the frame requires 10x16cm prints however when i click on the pics to print that doesnt come up as an option, 10x15 is there as is 13x18,

is there any easy way to change this so i dont have a border round the photos?

It's all down to the software you use to print the pictures. Sometimes the printing utility supplied by the printer manufacturer is good enough, sometimes not.

Also be aware that you'll probably need to crop to meet specific proportions for the frame.

As above it depends on which program you are using. I don't think there is a custom print size function on windows live photo gallery. I use Photoshop to print out photographs up to A4 size and any size below that.
