How to Center and Hang a picture on the wall

On Lovetoknow.com, there’s this great tutorial on how to center and hang a picture on the wall.

I think it’s well written. However, in the case that the hardware is already attached, they left out one small adjustment.  After measuring the “length” (height) of the piece, also measure the distance from the hanging hardware or the wire to the top of the frame.  This is then subtracted from the height of where the picture is to be hung.  This adjustment makes up for the difference created by the placement of the hanging hardware.

Also, in addition to measuring tape, pencil, hammer, screw driver, and wall hangers, a level would be insurance that what is hung ends up square.
