    i totally disagree with making a uniform, predetermined height. different pictures look better at varying heights

    He was talking way to fast, I felt like I was in a math class and only missed a day then, decided to come back and was behind listening to this. The Pause button gets extra use right now

    This was very informative. Polyurethane Self-Adhesive Rubber Bumper Pads would be great to use on the back of the frames also. These will prevent the frame from sliding and keep it level.

    I am not getting why on larger pictures you are saying to measure from the hanging wire to 8 inches past the centre line that you marked? What am i missing here?

    57 inches at center art to the floor (on 8 ft. high wall) is just too low. That would be fine for say an art gallery exhibit, but for a home it looks tacky in my opinion. For me the magic number is 62 inches. Even at 60 inches, the art piece begins to look too centered, with too much room between the top frame and celling. A well hung picture will always have more room between bottom frame and floor than upper frame and celling. This way it looks more like a picture hanging on a wall and less like something from a children's funhouse.
