You CAN Frame The Moments Of Your Life

You can frame a moment. But you can´t frame life.
— Armin Houman

Once you have uploaded your favorite photos into one of the available media bins, you can start posting them in any of your living spaces for the world to see.

Every picture posted in a space (except for two, and we’ll identify them below) has either a standard or a custom frame around it to enhance its appearance.

Standard Frames

A default black frame (see the below image) is automatically assigned to any image that is placed directly on a wall.

At any time after placement you can change the black frame to one of these other standard frame options (all of them are free):

Examples of Black, Orange Plastic, and Light Wood Standard Frames

  • Light Wood (see image at right)

  • White Plastic

  • Tan Plastic

  • Red Plastic

  • Orange Plastic (see image at right)

  • Black Plastic

  • Stripe Material

  • Light Metal

  • Contemporary Brown Metal

  • Contemporary Black Metal

  • No Frame (the only standard frame option without a visible border)

You can change a standard frame’s appearance any time you wish, but if you remove the photo from the room, whatever frame currently assigned to it also disappears.

If you place that photo again later, you will start with the default black frame.

Note that you are not able to place an empty standard frame in a living space.

Custom Frames

Custom frames differ from standard frames in the following ways:

  • They can be placed in a living space without first assigning pictures to them

  • Custom desktop frames can be scaled in all three dimensions

  • A custom frame cannot be replaced/exchanged without first removing (i.e., returning it to its media bin) any photo added to it

  • Custom frames are premium products - they can be purchased within the game

The following styles of custom frames are available:

  • Desktop

    • Single frame

    • Multiframe (desktop) - 3 and 4 photo options

  • Wall

    • Metal Single frame (wall)

    • Plastic single frame (wall)

    • Wood single frame (wall)

    • Multiframe (wall) - 3, 5, and 8 photo options

    • Custom canvas (frameless)

To add a picture to a custom frame, simply drag it from a media bin, a placed standard frame, or from another custom frame in the same room over the custom frame and release it.

It will snap in place at the destination location.

In the pictures at right and above, you can see examples of how photos look displayed in several of the available custom frames.

20+ Colorful Frames To Highlight Your Favorite Photos

The most compelling things available for telling your story in Egowall can be found on your computer's hard drive or in your smartphone's Camera Roll.

Upload your favorite photos or other digital artworks into the game from your PC, laptop or any cloud service (e.g., Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.) to get started.

Once pictures have been stored in one of the available media bins, you can start displaying them in any of your living spaces.

To enhance the images' appearance, we provide two different frame types for them - standard and custom.

Let's learn a bit more about them and why you might choose one over the other.

Standard Frames

When you drag a picture from storage to a wall, the image is automatically assigned a black frame.

At any time thereafter you can (optionally) change the black frame to one of these color/ material options:

Available Standard Frame Styles

  • Light Wood

  • White Plastic

  • Tan Plastic

  • Red Plastic

  • Orange Plastic

  • Black Plastic

  • Stripe Material

  • Light Metal

  • Contemporary Brown Metal

  • Contemporary Black Metal

  • No Frame

You can change the frame's appearance (or remove it altogether) any time you wish, but if you remove the photo from the room, the frame disappears with it.

Standard frames are available to users at no additional cost.

Custom Frames

Single Frame - Desktop

Single Frame - Desktop

Custom frames behave differently than standard frames, as follows:

  • They are placed in a living space without first assigning pictures to them

  • All custom frames can be resized, but desktop frames (unlike wall frames) can be scaled in all three dimensions

  • A custom frame cannot be replaced/exchanged without first removing (i.e., returning it to its media bin) any photo added to it.

Wood Single Frame - Wall

The following styles of custom frames are available:

  • Single frame (desktop)

  • Multiframe (desktop) - 3 and 4 photo options

  • Metal Single frame (wall)

  • Plastic single frame (wall)

  • Wood single frame (wall)

  • Multiframe (wall) - 3, 5, and 8 photo options

  • Custom canvas (frameless)

Multiphoto Desktop Frame

To add a picture to a custom frame, simply drag it over the custom frame and release it. It will snap in place at the destination location.

The image can come from a media bin, from a placed standard frame, or from another custom frame in the same room.

Custom frames are premium products - they must be purchased within the game.

In the gallery below, you can see examples of how photos look displayed in several of the available custom frames.

Getting Started With Egowall

Check out our Unity-based social networking platform to see what you can do with Egowall. Then sign up for a free account and start using it to be The Real You™.


If you have received the golden ticket (i.e., the email message that confirms your acceptance to the Egowall community), you might be wondering what to do next.

Start by clicking on the link in the confirmation email to complete the Egowall registration process.

After signing in, you will be presented with a splash page for new users, where the features and starting benefits are described. Note that all members start out with 500 Ego Points (the currency of Egowall).

The Egowall Buy Homes Page

Because your virtual home is the center of action for sharing your content, go next to the Buy Homes page to look at the available home types. Take advantage of the Preview button available for each home and decide which one you wish to purchase.

Then choose either the Buy Standard Home or the Buy Custom Home link. Buying a Custom Home allows you to customize a number of elements of the home (exterior, front facade, mailbox, floor mat style, interior, and kitchen).

After you have acquired a home, you should populate it with your memorabilia and accomplishments. In preparation for that, head over to the Photos page and use the Quick Upload links to load relevant photos from your computer or external storage device(s) into containers.

Now that you have a home along with photos and other digital records to place on its walls, you probably want to visit it and start decorating.

We'll discuss that topic in a future post.
