Basic Acoustic Tile Placement
I have been given these acoustic tiles.
I have the back wall behind my desk ONLY as the other half of the room is my lady's!
Where do I stick them?I mix,record vocals and acoustics here.
Many,many thanks in advance for your advice!

They aren't really enough to make a huge difference... and if you can only stick them on the back wall they really won't make a lot of difference.
Ideally, though, you should palce them on the mirror points on the side walls, either side of your listening position -- which will mean on the left wall roughly under the first picture, and on the cupboard doors onthe right.
The mirror points are where, if there was a mirror held flat on the wall at that place, you could see the reflection of your speakers when viewed from the listening position. Placing absorbers there will soak up some of the sound energy fromt he speakers that would otherwise be bounced directly to your ears at the listening position -- resulting in unwanted colouration and stereo image degradation.
