It would be nice if the description were more clear, but to confirm, these frames are designed to hold the 6x6" Mill Hill beaded cross-stitch projects, NOT photos. The outside dimensions of the frame are 8 x 8 inches. The inner opening is 6x6 inches, with a viewing area of about 5.5 x 5.5 inches. There is no glass because the whole idea is to see the needlework. There is a small hole on the back that can be used to hang the frame. The frames also come with a small dowel that can be inserted in the hole, in case you want to stand the frame on a shelf or table. These frames are perfect for their intended purpose. I just wish they made one in a stained walnut or maple.
