With "Wall Gallery Designer" photographers, interior designers, artists, curators, art sellers and other creatives design art displays for walls, galleries, homes, businesses and outdoor art shows.

Your gallery design is art. It takes thought and time to get it right. Pre-visualize it before investing in frames.

Using augmented reality, you create and display arranged pictures on the screen anywhere, even outdoors with only a few minutes work. With a few taps, pictures are quickly rearranged, frame sizes, colors and material can be switched, and mat styles, colors and window sizes can be changed.

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

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. Drag and drop up to 6 photos directly from the Photos app.

Share photos from your Photos or Lightroom® Library to the app via the share sheet and find the best stock frames, mats and print sizes for art on your walls in your room and with your colors.

"Wall Gallery Designer" helps you answer these questions:

• How big should my photo be printed for display on my wall?
• What is the best color mat for my framed photo that fits the colors of my room?
• Would a narrow or wide frame face look better with my furniture?
• Where should I hang the framed picture?
• Should the colors in my photo be tuned to work better with my decor?
• How should I arrange my art on the wall?
• How do I organize my ideas for walls and galleries then share them with others?
• How do I record and track designs?

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 it clashes with room decor.

When you explore possibilities with “Wall Gallery Designer” in the place where it will be displayed, you are more likely to choose an excellent print size, mat and frame with less hassle, saving you time, money and stress.

In "Wall Gallery Designer” 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 can even pickup colors from the room or picture to use on frames, mats and walls.

You can choose to "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'.

Use photos saved to the camera roll from Lightroom.

Galleries, scenes and walls are managed from menus at the bottom of the management view. From these menus you can choose to share an archive of the scene or gallery. Later on a compatible iPad, you can drag and drop the archive onto the app window to restore the scene or gallery. You switch between management and design views with a double tap.

To minimize fatigue you freeze reality and complete your scene design without pointing your device at the wall. With reality frozen, the background contains the last image captured, while the design capabilities remain active so you can move and change framed pictures as usual. When the design is complete, tap the restart button and reposition the scene with your completed design.

"Wall Gallery Designer" is an augmented reality app for iPhone 6s and newer as well as iPads that use the A9 chip or newer. Using your phone's camera, it takes photos from your Photo Library and frames them in virtual picture frames on walls that you color, mat and position.

Ratings and Reviews

Nice concept but needs work

AR feature works well, but the frame dimensions are artificially limited for some reason (max of 47 inches for the piece of art I had) making the app useless for large paintings. Highly suggest that the developer remove the dimension limits and allow any size to be entered for width and height. Support for cropping and scaling of photos would also be nice.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your purchase and review. It is very helpful to learn what is important to users. [Update: The ability to specify custom frame sizes to 8'x8' is now in 2.5.3.]

Cropping and scaling of photos is already present in the app. Double-click the photo in a frame and the app switches to a view where you pinch out to scale up the photo in the frame window and drag to adjust the crop.

Thank you for the custom frame size suggestion. Customizable frame window sizes will be in a future release. The app was initially created for framing with materials generally available in the consumer retail market. With the upcoming introduction of scenes and galleries, the app will appeal to a broader market of professionals where more flexibility such as custom frame sizes will be needed.
