Dan, go to www.thelibrarystore.com and look for "Countertop Book and Media Easels". My wife is a librarian and she gets these for me all the time. Look at the small 2-wire and the standard 2-wire book easels. They're collapsible, inexpensive, and work very well as framed photo stands. The bottom support stays well concealed under the frame, rather than coming back up around the front of the frame. I use these to hold frames all the way up to 12x16 with no problem.

Best Regards,
