Where to find Chinese Dragon Frames

You’ll find Chinese Dragon frames in PicsArt’s frame menu (duh!). Just tap the frame icon on the menu bar of the editor. To download them, you can also search the name directly in the in-app Shop. That’s the little shopping basket icon at the far right corner.

Who Chinese Dragon Frames are for

Chinese Dragon Frames are for revellers of the Chinese New Year, and fans of flying Chinese dragons — which includes just about everyone. No editing expertise is required, adding clipart on PicsArt is easy enough for anyone to master.

How to use Chinese Dragon Frames

To use a Chinese Dragon Frame, upload a photo into the editor and tap the frame icon. Scroll down to Chinese Dragon Frames, pick a frame, and that’s really all there is to it. PicsArt goes long on customization, however, so if you want to go further, here are some other cool ideas:

Make it Fit

If your Valentine Frame doesn’t line up quite right, you can fix that with two finger motions. Rotate your fingers to rotate, pinch to shrink, and spread to enlarge.

Preview Frames

To try on different frames, you don’t have to hit cancel and start over! After picking a frame, tap the little frame icon next to the cancel button, and then choose a different frame.

Add Clipart

There’s loads of great Chinese New Year clipart, and a fun way to use it with your frame is to make your clipart pop out of the frame! Try Floating Lanterns Clipart, and float a lantern out of the edge of your frame.


Share your pics to all your fave social networks directly from within the PicsArt app. After you’ve finished adding a Chinese Dragon Frame, confirm your edit by tapping the checkmark. The next menu let’s you choose a network so you can go straight to posting your pics online!

Other goodies?

Sometimes, the best clipart or frames are the ones you stumble into.
