Below are 3 quick tips that will alleviate potential problems in printing.

Just like the word says, it is the right to copy something. In this case we are referring to forms of art including photography. If you have not formally protected your work, you may later regret not doing so. Most artists and photographers know that their work is automatically copyright protected the moment they created it. But is this automatic protection enough?

This week we will look at how we can fine tune the image further. In many cases part 1 will be all you need to do but the following is recommended if you are enlarging photographs of artwork you will be reproducing. Results will vary and may or may not be noticeable depending on the image and how extreme the enlargement process was. Me personally, I find it won't harm the image to do the next several steps and also have found that it can sometimes fix artifacting which can occur with JPG files that have been re-saved too many times. I should point out that our internal printing software will resample all images we print to 300 pixels/inch at the intended print size with a little better results than what you can get in Photoshop but generally you will get near the same results by doing the following process below.

Ideally you don't want to have to enlarge an image file but you may find that not all your images are large enough for the size you want. When ordering your fine art paper prints or canvas from us, if your image is not large enough you will likely get a message indicating that your file is too small for the size you selected to print. There is a way around this and that is to increase the resolution and size of the image. Results are going to be mixed dependent on how extreme you take the enlarging of the image.

Tuesday, August 21, 2012 8:00:33 PM - Sometimes people will use the term blurry to refer to an image being pixelated. The truth is the two terms are very different and used to describe two differing problems which can occur.

Tuesday, July 26, 2011 9:14:29 PM - How important is a photos focus in relation to resolution. This looks at a recent scenario where the focus of the images or lack thereof became the issue when the images were made into large canvas prints.

Monday, July 25, 2011 9:40:28 AM - Extra margins in your image file can give you great control of the border size you want with a print however if you did not intend to include margins but did, it can give the impression your image was not printed at the correct size.

The good news is that you really do not need a bunch of special features to get good results. In fact, visiting a camera store is an excellent way to start. Many of the sales people are familiar with the features which each camera offers. Another thing to consider is that many times you will be stuck with features you do not need, simply because that is how cameras are made.
