    Easy with layers. From top to bottom, image, frame, shadow (use warp to curve the shadow and blur to soften the edge). The shadow obviously needs to be slightly larger than the frame. The image above has a gradient in the shadow to make it look better too.

    Just a note: The photo frame isn't curved. Put a window on top of it or pull in your browser and you'll see. Just the shadow is curved.
