When you hang a picture or painting on your wall do you position it by sight or do you precisely measure to get it in just the right place?

I hang pictures by sight! I thought I'd try to hang a group of pictures by measuring, but it didn't work at all. I'm still scratching my head over that one. Definitely by sight.
I always measure because I can't bear it if they are off centre or not aligned!
By sight !

A bit of both..... I use sight to get the picture where I want it, then measure to make sure it is exactly right.
Yin and yang - balance - everything in moderation..... not just for life but hanging pictures too!
I always hang by sight. I always think its funny that my husband and his son can spend quite a long time measuring up and end putting where I would have just hung it anyway.
I certainly do not measure however I cannot hang a picture apart from using sticky stuff as I cannot use a drill so would have to say I do it by sight.

I do a little of both.
If one picture, then by tape measure.

If like on one of my odd walls, then by sight,
with a few frames in a certain design on that wall.Like in my pic.

Me....by sight.......Always spot on!
Better half.....measured to the last mm!
Takes ten times longer than I, to arrive at same conclusion!
I measure but sometimes still don't get it exactly right.
A bit of both. My late husband who had been an engineer always did everything precisely and would take forever to hang anything on the wall. The tape measure, spirit level and bits and bobs came out before he was happy. It used to drive me nuts!
