Installing trim....

I need to install window and door trim. I just recently re-did all the sheetrock in some rooms but noticed that the door frames and window frames stick out a litte more then the sheetrock. What can I do to about this? should i shave down the frame so the trim sits flush or is there someother trick out there?

Shaving the wood to make it flush is the best way to go.

Use a small handheld block plane, finish with a belt sander, if needed. Round the sharp edge of the jamb with a piece of 120 grit sandpaper.

my 2 cents
used a plane and shave it in an angle so one part is flush with the drywall
so when you place your trim over the frame it will hide the uneven part of the wall
