How to Properly Hang Your Photo Or Art Frames

Pictures frames, art work, and even butterfly collections truly make a room more beautiful. They bring life to otherwise boring and plain walls. They also show photos of memorable events and artsy craftwork whether done by family members or other well-known people.

Hanging frames is an art in itself and how you place them and hang them can really emphasize or otherwise diminish the beauty of the photo or art work. Just like any other thing you put on your wall, hanging framed artwork should be done with a keen eye to the surrounding decor.

Here are some basic steps to ensure that your frames will look more beautiful and that the photo or art work in them will be highlighted and focused on.

– Determine the layout that you want to have. It can be a series of frames in a slightly arched position or maybe arrangements similar to layouts seen on a dice.
– Next, try out this layout by placing cardboard or any piece of paper across the wall using the layout that you want. You can immediately see whether it is exactly what you have in mind. Remember to use paper or cardboard that is almost the same size as your frames. You can outline the frames and then cut them out to get the sizes. This way, you can also identify the placements of the frames according to size. A visual trial always works best.
– If your placement doesn’t seem too appealing, try another layout. Your layout will also be affected when you have items hanging from the ceiling at low elevation.
– It is important that the frames can be seen at eye level.
– Have prominent markings when you finalize your placement. Placing nails in the wall will not be easy to remove in case you change your mind or miscalculate. That scar on the wall will not look too good, so be sure to measure carefully.
– Have equal distance between the frames and do not put one too far or too close to the next one. This way, you will be able to have balance in the room through the placement of the frames.
– Note the positions of lights in the room as well. Since framed art is generally composed of glass material on the front, you may want to keep the frames a bit farther from the lights as the light can reflect on the glass making the image of the picture less visible.

Make sure that the frames and the clips are sturdy so they do not fall. Especially if you are hanging frames on a wooden wall, be mindful about the strength of the nails and how they are attached. One important factor is the depth or how deep the nail is inside the wall. For thin double-faced walls, use smaller nails so that the frames on the other side are not affected. With a little planning and coordination, you can make your walls look beautiful with your framed artwork and photographs.

Social Media Marketing – How to Update Your Status On Facebook to Include Photos

One day I was sitting in a small event learning something new. I happened to notice Jorge, on one side of me, was no longer paying attention to what was being taught from the front of the room. Instead he was scrolling through his Facebook newsfeed. In the interests of market research I started to watch him.

Then I noticed, Gus on my other side, was scrolling through his Facebook newsfeed too!

What I noticed both of them were doing was only stopping and looking at the posts that included a picture. They were bypassing all of the posts that were text only. This confirmed for me something I had been seeing on the pages of our clients and the pages I look at on a regular basis. The posts that had the most interaction had pictures! At that point I was no longer paying attention to what was being taught either. However this has proven to be an extremely valuable lesson for me.

It is very important that you add pictures to your newsfeed as this is what will catch people’s attention.

  1. Select an option:
    • Upload Photos/Video: Post photos from your computer. The photos you post will be added to your Timeline Photos album.
    • Add Synced Photos: If you have photo syncing turned on, you can post photos that have synced from your phone or tablet. The photos you post will be added to your Timeline Photos album.
    • Create Photo Album: Post photos from your computer to a new album.
  2. Select the photos you want to add to Facebook.

It is also best if you can tag a friend or fan in your pictures. You will get more edgerank when you do. PLUS adding the location works extremely well when your business is local. When I attend local events I do my very best to add my location as it benefits both me and my city.

The type of photos you post will also make a difference to the interaction you receive. When you are posting pictures for marketing and business purposes be sure to stay away from the Facebook colors as they will blend in more with the platform itself.

Look for pictures that are eye catching and use humor where appropriate for you and your fans. If you are having trouble finding pictures to post remember you can “share” appropriate pictures from other Facebook Pages. Be sure your content is relevant and or entertaining.
