Smile Picture frame suggestions

I KNOW some of you folks have made picture frames at one time or another and I seek your wisdom.
Want to make some simple frames to go in a little winter retreat. I have a new miter saw (from Harbor Freight and I will do a report on this thing) and all the tools etc. but I suspect there are little "tricks" that wise old woodworkers know.
Will you share?

to get really tight corners 1st make sure your at a true 45deg and 2nd the blade is as true to 90 deg as you can get it.

Some years ago, before to buy a miter saw, to avoid the 45 problem I made a frame with raised squares in the corners... but it was for a cubist painting
