* One of the symbols to be found in ''VideoGame/DarkFall : the Journal'' is hidden this way. Made more difficult to find because the only way to access the framed picture in question is [[spoiler: to play the phonograph loudly enough to shake the photo so it falls from the wall]].

A variation is when the frame gets broken accidentally, usually due to TheFool knocking it over.

* In ''{{Paycheck}}'' the stamp on the envelope that held the 13 clues was in fact a clue itself. In fact one of the clues in the package's only purpose was to help him notice the stamp.
* ''{{Saw}} II'' has a photo taped to the back of a frame. And for extra kudos, it's also marked with an 'X'.

* ''{{Salute Your Shorts}}'' has a subversion in that the picture frame breaks, and there is indeed a treasure map inside... planted by Budnik, who was the one to break the frame in a scheme to sell copies to the fake map to fellow campers.
* A variation occurs on an episode of ''{{Bones}}''. Hodgins is taking samples from a crime scene and when nobody is looking opens up a frame and removes a picture that showed him and the victim together before anyone noticed. In an aversion, the picture is NOT a clue related to the case, but would have revealed Hodgins past connection to the victim (childhood friends until he stole Hodgin's fiancee) and stopped him from helping to solve his old friend's murder.
