3 Mistakes To Avoid When Framing Photos

Whether you want to frame wedding portraits or pictures from your last family vacation, knowing how can be difficult. Not only do you want them framed in a way that makes displaying them easy, but you also need to ensure the photos are protected. With this guide, you will learn a few mistakes to avoid when framing your pictures.

Not Taking Photo Quality into Consideration

One of the worst mistakes you can make is enlarging a photo so it can be placed in a larger frame. In cases where photos were taken professionally or using a real camera, enlarging the photos can be possible. However, if you are hoping to enlarge a photo taken by your smartphone, enlarging the photo will most likely affect the quality.

Even if you want a larger photo to fit a larger frame, take the photo quality into consideration. This will ensure you are not framing blurry, less-than-appealing photos.

Using Clip Frames

If you visit your local frame shop or home décor retailer, you will most likely see a large and quite overwhelming selection of frames. From shapes and sizes to colors and mounting methods, it is easy to see the challenges of choosing a frame.

One common mistake many people make is choosing clip frames for their photos. Many people love clip frames because they allow you to clip a photo into the frame with ease. If you change your mind later and want another photo in the frame, you can easily replace it.

Unfortunately, the clip can actually damage the photo, especially if left in place too long.

Instead of seeking the easy and simple way out, invest in a more traditional frame that will not damage the photo.

Not Considering UV Protection

If you are hanging or placing your frame near a window, using a frame with glass that offers UV protection is imperative. Over time, the sun's ultraviolet rays can discolor photos, so having this protection is smart especially if you have older photos you want to last generations.

Fortunately, many frames are available with glass that offers this UV protection. You can choose from frames in various styles and designs, shapes and sizes, colors and finishes – just make sure the frame's glass is specifically designed for protecting the photo from the harmful ultraviolet rays.

Help is available when choosing frames for your photos. This guide will ensure your photos are framed in the best and most protected manner possible.
