Some people hang wooden or metal things they bought at some decor store, we hang our photos (mostly).I've been slowly moving in this direction. Historically, I've either looked at 4 x 6 prints or looked at photos on a 12 x 15 (19" diagonal) monitor. I while back I bought that fancy 13 x 19 photo printer, and the 8 x 10s I made were significantly better looking than the same image on the monitor. No surprise, the effective DPI is the photo limit (230 DPI at 8x10) instead of the monitor resolution (85 DPI).I made a 7 x 19 print of that Macchu Picchu panorama I like so much, which my wife intends to mat and frame at some point. And... it's a little disappointing. Not because it's digital, but because it was taken with a digicam. Since it's a composite image, the resolution is actually about 5200 x 2300, or 275 DPI. The issue is that it's taken with a digicam-grade lens with a ridiculous focal range. So it's kind of soft looking.There are reasons why SLR lenses cost the big bucks. - Gus
