Significance of adjective placement?

In Spanish, adjectives typically come after the noun they modify. However, there are some cases when the adjective comes before the noun, and usually (always?) with a change in meaning. Example:> El hombre grande -> The big man> El gran hombre -> The great manSo a two-part question:1. How can I know when it is appropriate to put an adjective first?2. When I encounter an adjective before a noun, how can I know the difference in meaning?
