Displaying photos in a home is a popular way to decorate and adds a personal touch to a space. However, it can be a challenge figuring out the best methods for displaying the photos. You may have more photos than you have space for display or you may just be a loss for what is going to look best and suit your style best. Choosing a method, highlighting what you choose and enjoying the photos are a complicated process you may need help doing. Start by understanding it is not enough to just slap a photo on the wall. It is important to draw attention to the photos once they are displayed. You can do this with picture frame lights. Art lighting is a great way to call attention to the displays you have created, no matter how simple or complicated they may be. If you are going to make the effort to put photos on your wall and display them, be sure they stand out in your room.

Next, choose a collage display that is the right scale for the room. The larger a room, the larger the display needs to be. If you live in a small space, you will want to create a more intimate environment with smaller displays. If you think you cannot find a single collage large enough, consider putting a series of three or five collages together to take up an entire wall. This will make a bold statement and show how important family and memories are in your home.

When choosing the collage, have some ideas of what photos you want to include in your display. You may not want to make your final choices until you see the display coming together. However, you should have some idea of which photos will be on display. If you want to display photos from an event that included a lot of people, you are not going to want to cut anyone out. Round out the number of photos you think you will want to display and shop for a collage in this approximate size. You can still edit the collection once you are working on it.

Understand you may need to trim the photos to fit them into the collage. For this reason, you may want to make copies of the photos. If you have digital images, you do not need to worry about this. With the disk, you can order copies at any time. However, if you do not own the rights to the photos or you have chosen to display older photos that were never digital, making a copy ensures you have a backup photo before you start chopping away at your display image. In addition to trimming the photo to fit the collage, make sure you are also highlighting the most important image in the photo.

Finally, do not go overboard with collage displays throughout your home. Do some planning before making your purchases. A collection of individual photos and collage collections usually work best.
