A 12 x 20 frame is a type of picture frame that holds a single photograph inside. They are often found at drugstores and department stores.
This size was originally known as a "6 x 10, " but when framed pictures became popular, they were renamed to make them more appealing to consumers.
Photos taken professionally will likely measure around 8 inches wide by 11 inches tall. If yours isn't professional quality, then you'll want to double this measurement.
You can either take your own photos or hire a photographer to shoot your image. Either way, you'll want to print out your photo onto paper and cut it out. Then, tape the photo to the back of the frame.
Frames typically come with hanging hardware that makes it easy to hang your frame. Simply attach the hardware to the wall and hang your frame.
Many people like to keep their frames upright on bookshelves or coffee tables. However, you can also display them horizontally on walls or vertically against a mirror.
To clean your frame, simply wipe off dust with a damp cloth. Don't use soap or water, though, since it could leave streaks on your glass.
Matte finish means that the surface has no shine. Glossy finish means that the surface has a shiny sheen.
Sunlight is ideal for shooting images outdoors. But if you're indoors, try taking your photo under natural light or artificial lights.
If you're going to display your frame next to a window, choose a neutral background color. Avoid bright colors, since they tend to distract viewers from your subject matter.
Store your frame in its original packaging. Otherwise, you run the risk of damaging the frame.
