One that you can look back on and remember as a keepsake for that experience. Now that you've snapped the perfect photo, it's time to edit your work and create your final piece, one that deserves to stand as artwork in your home, as a canvas print, a calendar, or even a specialty wall hanging. Once you've you've got your best shot, you can easily edit it with a variety of apps or using your own smartphone camera's settings. Read on for more ways and ideas to edit and frame your photos.

How to Frame Your Photos:
 

Choosing a frame that complements your photo or piece of art can help make it truly eye-catching. Do you have a series of similar photos to frame? Consider a collage. Black-and-white photos usually look best with simple, modern, black frames, while sepia-toned pictures are complemented by frames in natural wood hues. If you’d like your photo to really stand out, consider using a dramatic, ornate frame.

To ensure you select a frame that looks great with your print, place the photo on different frames, digitally or physically, to find the best fit and look. It can also help to have a color sample of the wall or surface you’ll be displaying your photo on.

Choose Matting for Your Picture Frames

Including matting around your photo can help elevate the print so that it stands out, but it’s not a perfect choice for every photo. White—or sometimes black—matting gives your picture an elegant feeling. Matting works particularly well for artwork, black-and-whites, or professional family photos. Use matting for your photos to make them pop, when the time, and look, is right.

How to Display Your Photo Frames

There are many factors to consider when determining how to display your newly framed photo. Where will you be displaying your photo? Will it be front-and-center on your mantle or on a hallway wall? Personalized collage frames, for example, look best displayed on their own or centered between two other large photos. Brightly-colored frames provide a nice contrast alongside black or white frames.

For a modern look, arrange a group of framed black-and-white photos in a symmetrical rectangle or square shape in the center of a wall. If your style is more relaxed or even eccentric, combine a variety of frame shapes and colors together for a unique display. Add in block letters, wall art and décor such as vases and books for stylish mantle or shelf arrangements.

With these tips, finding the perfect frame and display style for your photos is a breeze. Don’t forget to use Shutterfly for all your framing needs!
