Photo displays are great if you got some nicely taken photos to hang up. I think some people hang whatever they can get, hoping to achieve the look. But if you use personal photos that have value and meaning to you, then you will appreciate them and the display they are in.

People are such poor hangers of pictures, this article is a good start. It drives me crazy to see things hung asymmetrically or too high. My mother, an art school graduate and an art collector, could have hired herself out as a professional picture hanger. My sister and I, even living across the country, would have her help us hang pictures. She was very methodical and she did follow the technique for putting a group on the floor and then measuring. Now that she is gone, I did hire someone from a framing store to help me hang as I dreaded hanging all the art I had. They did it in two hours. I am about to do a wall of the small stuff plus photos ( a great photo of my grandfather with his fraternity brothers all in spats!) in a guest bedroom. This article is giving me lots of ideas.
