- Item Frames can be placed on a wall and then right-clicked with an item to put that item in them. With an item in the Item Frame, one can rotate it by right-clicking. As of Update 1.8, it can be rotated in 8 directions.
- If you get 2 maps exactly beside each other, you can put it in a item frame on the side that the map fits in. This will make a large map on the wall.
Relationship with comparators
If a Redstone Comparator is placed leading away from an Item Frame, it will send out a signal based on the rotation of the item inside. No rotation is a signal of 0; rotated once is 1; rotated twice is 2; and so on up to a strength of 7. This only works in 1.8.
Since Update 1.7.2, renamed items in Item Frames will show their name hovering above the frame when moused over.
- It is possible to put an Item Frame inside an Item Frame, but not to put an Item Frame inside an Item Frame inside an Item Frame and so on.
- Item Frames are not really blocks: a block can occupy their space, they can be broken with a Sword in creative mode, they can be customized and they can be /summoned.
