Printing Your Photos At HomePublished 27/01/2021
With modern day technology, printing photos is becoming less popular and let us not forget about how much it could cost depending on where and what you are wanting to print. However, there is a particularly great feeling you get when you sit down and look through a photo album full of timeless memories. Social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook, are probably playing a big part as to why getting your photos printed seems like a tedious job.
Google Vice President Dr. Vincent Cerf said, “We are nonchalantly throwing all of our data into what could become an information black hole without realising it.” Having the ability to share and post your photos is still an incredible thing and allows you to show friends and family new and old memories. But on the other side to this, as well as an advancement in digital technology, there has been an advancement in printing technology allowing you to achieve professional looking printed photos in the comfort of your own home.
The first step would be to make sure your printer is able to produce high quality prints or invest in one that would be capable of doing so. Don’t think that you have to invest in an expensive laser technology printer, an inkjet printer can print some incredible photo prints. A high resolution will result in a better-quality image so make sure the printer is able to print at the right dpi (dpi stands for dots per inch) and you do not select one too high for the printer. Have a look at your image size and see what the pixel dimensions are, remember making the photo bigger can result in the loss of the sharpness in the original photo. Finally, you will also want to choose glossy photo paper to print with as this will bring vibrance to your photos and give your prints that professional look.
Once you have the right printer and the right technique printing your photos at home will be super simple and cost-effective.
