You’ve done it. You’ve finally snapped the perfect photograph. Your vacation memories will never fade, as your digital pictures tell the perfect tale. Or you caught your child’s first tooth absolutely perfectly – the hint of white against the fleshy, pink gums.
Now what? How do you share these perfect pictures with the rest of the world? They are, after all, works of art in your eyes. You simply want to show them as such to everyone else as well.
Start Simple and Create Professional Photo Albums
The first way to share your digital photographs with friends and family are professional photo albums. Almost any digital photography processing company offers this service. You submit a group of photographs, and they’re printed and bound in an album format.
These professional photo albums are great to carry with you and show off your vacation to family, friends, and co-workers. They’re also perfect gifts for grandparents and distance relatives – after all, what grandmother doesn’t want a Brag Book to carry in her purse and show your sweet baby off to all her friends!
Take it to the Wall! Your Perfect Photographs can become Wall Art
One of the most basic and yet most overlooked ways to make your digital photograph last forever is to hang it on the wall. When people consider printing digital photographs, they rarely think about printing larger than 4″ x 6″. This is seriously limiting, however, their ability to turn their pictures into works of art.
Large prints shouldn’t be done on your home printer, as the size of the print can make print quality issues glaringly obvious. Any digital picture printing service, however, has the equipment to print these pictures as it should be done. Make sure that you’re not over-stretching the quality of your image file – most printing services will give you a size limit after which the quality will start to fade. But if you stick within these bounds, all you need is a great picture frame, a hammer, and a nail to bring your work of art to the wall.
National Geographic Has Nothing on Your Photography Coffee Table Book
The epitome of professional photography has always been a printed book with the artist’s pictures, just perfect for coffee table conversation. But with the advent of digital photography processing services, these books are no longer just for the professional photographer.
You can now have a series of your digital photographs printed into an actual, bound book. The digital print services will provide software for you to arrange the pictures as you’d like, and then will take those layouts and print them into a book. These books are the quintessential way to remember an amazing vacation or important milestone in your family.
So don’t let your digital photographs linger on your memory card or hard drive endlessly. Instead, take your digital photography to the next level and turn those images into priceless (to you) works of art.
