Wall mounting a TV to use to display my images?
I'm not sure this is the right forum for my questions. If not I hope the powers that be will move it where it belongs.
My Nikon D800 can produce very sharp 16 x 20 images. I can make 16 x 20 paper prints, but I will very soon run out of wall space in my condo to hang them on.
I see that LED TV sets have come way down in price, so it makes sense to set up a 22 inch LED set (or larger) to be used solely for displaying images. I think I can even get one with a USB port in which I can insert a flash drive and arrange for a slide show. I don't need to use it as a TV set.
I don't have any experience with wall mounting a TV. Can anyone give me advice about how to do it?
Also, let me know what you think of the basic idea.

I think the idea has lots of merit!
Many if not most of the TVs sold today have provision for wall mount either with the purchase of the mount from the TV manufacturer or a third party mount. Installing the mount can involve locating studs inside the wall and "fishing" power up to the mount (unless you are not bothered by the power cable dangling in view.
If you do not feel that your skills are up to the task, I see two other options: a local handyman/small contractor or the store where you buy the TV. Many retailers offer wall-mount installation.
Another thought: if you have a wireless home network and if you purchase a model with built-in wireless capability, you could replace the flash-drive-swap image feed by wirelessly feeding the TV from your computer.
