I am trying to hang photos with 5x7 and 8x10 photos in a collage over the couch on a big blank wall but when i hang it it just looks like a cluttered mess. how can i make it look good?!

Do the lay-out on the floor first. Play with it until it looks good. Take a picture of it. Then start hanging. good luck.

Are your frames similar like all wood, metal or something else? Try laying them out on the floor first and re-arrange them until you get the look you want. Then measure the space between pictures. Blue tape on the wall also helps to visualize.

Are they matted alike, framed alike? That may be the key.

yes all frames were the same just different size. i laid them out on the floor and made what i thought would look good on the wall. hubby measured and hung and it looked like a cluttered mess. is there a certain amount that is appropriate? could i be using too many photos?

Try putting them just 2 inches apart instead of spreading out.

this sample of a gallery wall might interest you. note most of the bottoms of the frames are even on the top row and most of the tops of the frames are even on the bottom row.

I prefer to line up the bottom row.
