Your photo library likely contains thousands of photos. Buried inside are photographic gems that are as worthy of hanging in your home or office as any art you might buy. But creating a wall gallery of your best photos takes thought and time to get right. Gallery design is an art. 

"Wall Gallery Designer" simplifies gallery design by framing and hanging pictures on the walls of your own rooms using augmented reality. Drag and drop photos directly from the Photos app. Freeze reality to design without holding your device up. Share photos from your Photos or Lightroom® Library to the app. With a few taps, quickly change frame sizes, colors, and mats or rearrange pictures. Even choose float, canvas and frameless styles.

Millions of mat and frame combinations are stocked in stores. Choosing sizes and colors in bad lighting in a store, instead of on-the-wall where the framed picture will hang, often fails because frames clash with room decor.

Create with confidence a gallery that works with your room decor. When you explore possibilities with “Wall Gallery Designer” in augmented reality, you are more likely to choose an excellent print size, mat, and frame with less hassle, saving you time, money and stress.

Can you answer these questions?
• How big should my photos be printed for display on my wall?
• What mat color is best for my framed photos and the colors of my room?
• Would narrow or wide frame faces look better with my furniture?
• Where should I hang the framed pictures?
• Should the colors in my photos be adjusted to work better with my decor?
• How should I arrange my art on the wall?
• Frameless, canvas, metal or wood framing?
• How do I organize my ideas for walls and galleries then share them with others?
• How do I record and save designs?

With "Wall Gallery Designer" and augmented reality, you answer these questions and more to make art displays for walls, galleries, homes, businesses, and outdoor art shows.

Each arrangement is a multi-wall scene within a gallery. Instantly switch scenes in a gallery to compare different designs for the walls. Create separate galleries for different clients or locations.

You choose the colors and sizes of the mats and frames from common ones similar to those stocked in stores in the US or custom colors. You may even pick up colors from the room or picture to use on frames, mats, and walls. Analyzing the picture, the app even suggests mat colors.

Virtually "hang" pictures without mats and/or frames to visualize how float, frameless, canvas or glass pictures might display on your wall in standard or custom size windows. When you are considering art already in a custom frame, add its photo to your camera roll, then choose it for a frame that has a frame face size of 'none'.
