How to Frame a Picture
- For information about creating a nice photo see the OC Photography Program, or tips on Digital Photography/Taking Digital Photos.
Creating a frame for a picture can be an expensive and confusing task. This Wikibook attempts to address this by providing instructions to allow you to do it yourself!
The book is currently broken into pages, which attempt to address the various stages required to produce a basic, though gallery quality, picture frame. There are additional pages which address special techniques and outline methods to handle complex items (such as boxing gloves).
This book began life as a summary of experience from someone new to the area, and will hopefully be built upon to become a useful reference and guide.
