Hanging Pictures

I am looking to hang some pictures in the 5ver. Since the interior walls where my bride wants the pictures hung are 1/4 inch panelling has anyone found a good system that doesn't damage the walls and securely holds the picture?

I use standard hook and wire on the frame with velcro on each corner.
I have 4 pictures with frame and glass plus others without glass. the ones without glass have only velcro holding them up. So far all are still up there although I renewed the velcro after 5 years. The sticky stuff was drying out. I spend a lot of time in the desert SW. I use industrial strength velcro from Walmart.

I use a blob of plumbers putty on picture corners to keep them in place. Buy a roll at hardware store. It has so many great uses in your home on wheels.

But be sure and use the plumbers putty at the bottom corners to keep pics level regardless of how you hang them.

You've got plenty of advice, but I've used 3m double-sided tape (maybe it's the same stuff as command strips, but it comes in small rolls), and my pics (and even a heavy Mexican plate) are still on the wall after 5 yrs....

Yup, plenty of advise but, if I may, I'd like to toss one more item into the discussion for consideration.

I use "Quakehold" Museum Putty It's only a few dollars from Amazon. They also make a "wax" and a clear gel.

The stuff really works, is reusable, and also holds things in place like table lamps and other bric-a-brac. (Shoot me if you must...because the product isn't made in America.)

I use the Command Strips, and Quake Hold, but not the museum putty, as its a pain in the neck to remove. I prefer the original earthquake putty- I didn't like the idea of using something too semi permanent that required fishing line to remove the leftovers along with possible scrubbing on the "paper" of the walls of my trailer Just my .02
