Frame in computer terms can have a few different meanings. HTML frames are used on some web sites and they allow for several pages to be shown at the same time. Frames are also used in desktop publishing and graphics and they are a rectangular shaped area that is used to insert text and images easily onto a page. Frames are also used in animation and video and a frame is a single picture within a series of pictures that when played together at a certain speed (video is typically shot at 24-30 frames every second) create a seamless moving picture.
