Oval Picture Frame: Preparing Your Image

If you have chosen an oval picture frame for your picture, then you will first need to do some preparation. This will ensure that the image is the right shape to fit properly into the frame. There are a few things that you need to do to do this.

Step 1: Preparing the Frame

The first thing that you need to do is take the back off the frame so that you can see through it. This will make it possible to place the frame onto your photo to see exactly how it will look. This is an important step because it makes it possible to line up the photo correctly inside the frame.

Once you have done this, remove the oval piece of glass from the frame. This can be used as a template as the photo should be the same size as the glass.

Step 2: Cutting

Put the piece of glass down onto the photo and position it until you are happy. When you are moving the glass, you should be careful because it can sometimes scratch the image if you rush.

You must ensure that the image is perfectly straight otherwise it will look strange. When you are happy with the position, use a ball point pen to draw around the glass. This is the best pen to use because it shouldn't cause any damage to the photo.

Now you need to cut the photo out. Ensure that you are using a very sharp pair of scissors to cut around the line.

Step 3: Framing

When you have cut the photo to size, clean the inside of the glass using a lint free cloth. Put the photo inside the frame and place the back on. Then, all you need to do is hang it on your wall where everyone can enjoy it.
