Photo Printing Options
With so many photos being taken every day by almost everybody in the United States, there are millions of photos that are being stored on smartphones, on SD cards or on the hard drives of computers around the country. Out of the millions of these photos, not many of them are actually getting printed, but simply stay in digital format to be shown to friends and family with the passing around of a smart phone or the peering over shoulders on a computer screen. This display of photos does no justice to the photos themselves as smartphone and computer screens are not the best displayers of photos. There is the backlit glare of LED screens, the poor color adjustment on many phone and computer screens and the unflattering two dimensions of screens that do not adjust to the light in a room or the angle at which you look at it from. In fact, light and angles make the photo look even worse.
With so many photos being taken around the country every day it would be foolish to encourage all of these photos to be printed and shown off in the best possible way, but out of those millions of photos and the many photos that you have taken, there are some outstanding photos that just must be printed for the sake of your efforts and to provide justice to the photo itself. Photo printing is not done much anymore other than by pro photographers but that means there are thousands of photos that go unprinted, forgotten about after they have been shared on social media and left as a series of digital zeros and ones that in no way complement the art that is photography.
If you value your photos then get back into photo printing the way you were a decade or two ago or make sure you find out about photo printing if you never experienced going down to your local photo printing store, handing over the film and coming back a few days later to excitedly hold them in your hands and see them for the first time.
Photo printing stores still exist for the enthusiastic amateur photographers and professional photographers and you thus still have the opportunity to benefit from the art of photo printing. Search through your photos and choose a few that stand out in terms of quality, composition and memories. Once you have chosen a few, you have a number of photo printing options. You can simply print out smaller photos for inclusion in an album or in a small frame. You can enlarge the photos is they are of high enough resolution and use the photos to decorate a bare wall or complement other home décor. Your own photos provide personality and uniqueness to your wall décor. Those are the simple options. You can go further in terms of paper choice from glossy and matte choices through to canvas for enlarged photos. The different print options will give different emotions to the same photo and you simply have to choose the message you want to convey.
