Step 1) Enter the width and height of your wall in metres (eg: 3.1 x 2.8)photo-framed-with-double-mat.jpg

To begin with you will need to get a tape measuring tool, or a laser measuring device. It is best not to use a a desk ruler or a measuring square because when several measurements are added up for the total size, mistakes are likely to  occur. You will then need to measure, end to end, or corner to corner, both the width and the height of the wall you intend hanging your photo frames, picture frames or indeed, or for that matter, any other wall art. When you measure, do so to the nearest centimetre. Do not use Imperial measuring tools because inches,  feet, yards and the like are not supported by this calculator.  You can always convert Imperial sizes though by multiplying 1 inch x 25.4 centimetres, as a rule of thumb. Write down the measurements you obtain and enter them below here, observing any resulting decimal points, for better results, and greater accuracy:

Step 2) Enter the width and height of any picture frames you want to hang in metres (eg: 1.2 x .6)

Please refer to preceding Step 1) for measuring tool instructions. Now measure the width and height of each picture frame or photo frame you want to hang. Please note that you can measure up to 8 (eight) frames with this calculator. Write the sizes down a piece of paper and enter them into the boxes below. Please measure to the nearest centimetre and do not use Imperial measurements. Write down your measurements and enter these below here, observing any resulting decimal points, for better results and, greater accuracy:

Step 3) Enter the height of the wire or cord of any picture frame to its top edge, in metres (eg: .3)

Referring to the photograph beside here, you can now measure the hanging height of the cord of each picture frame. The hanging height is means the height with the cord or string drawn up under the weight of  the frame. Write all the sizes that you get down a piece of paper and enter them into the boxes below. Please measure to the nearest centimetre and do not use Imperial measurements. Write down your measurements and enter these below here, observing any resulting decimal points, for better results and, greater accuracy.
