Picture light is a generic term which is used to describe any sort of lighting setup that illuminates a picture, photo or painting. There are several ways to illuminate a picture. In a picture light, a light source is fixed in such a way that it throws light over a picture from a particular angle which creates a glowing affect. They are small light fixtures that are usually attached to picture or photo frames. They are usually fixed at the top panels because from that direction light falls on the entire picture. Some of them are codeless in nature and they come with a remote control access.
Instead of such special lighting fixtures simple wall scones and wall light fixtures can also be used for creating such picture-light effects. In some cases, the light source is fixed behind the picture such that their rays filter right through the picture, creating a hard spotlight-like effect. Then there are lights that are built into a picture which is connected to an electric circuit. Whenever you need the picture with lights, you can turn the switch on. LED lights are used for such illuminated pictures and wall photos.
