Updated 2011/11/28: I've modified the script to have it work without any error messages with at least Gimp 2.7.4

Control on shadow size and blur would be a nice addition

but what i found really important is a option to add a the frame around the image without scaling down the original image

better if as default ( leaving the actual resizing as a possible other option )

if you can not use the script -
Just duplicate the image - desaturate either the top or bottom layer - select the bottom layer and grab the scale tool.Make sure the link is connected so height and width are applied at the same time.Scale to whatever size you need.
Blur the bottom layer to your satisfaction.Add a default shadow to the top layer Filters>Light and Shadow>Drop Shadow.

There you go there is your effect.
