How to Buy the Correct Sized Picture

I wanted to buy a huge print of my new family photo to put above our entertainment center.

I measured and re-measured the space, debating sizes with my husband.
We went back and forth for hours on what size to order.

Finally, I came up with a solution:

Take a picture of the area.

Upload both the picture you want to hang (A) and the picture of the room (B) into a software like Photoshop.

Place photo A onto photo B, and play with the size of photo A until you like the look of it.

Remeber to think about the thickness of the frame you will be using!!

Once you get it looking right, measure the actual space using cue points. I used the glass hurricanes on the entertainment center, measuring just between them.

This should give you an idea of what size to order!

Hope this helps you for the next time you need to order some prints! Happy Monday everyone!
