Online picture printing basics

The day of digital camera is here and not all of the images that you take will need to be printed, since you can take images for almost free you may find yourself taking 4 of the same image just to make sure that you get a good one. This gives you a few options, such as having select images printed via your printer, an Online photo printer or by carrying on disk to your local photo printer.

Sending your images to Online printers is become one of the easiest ways to get quality enlargements of your images and also an efficient way for you to get your regular prints for photo albums on photographic grade paper. Before you send your images you'll need to make sure that you've prepared them for size and color. Color is possibly the biggest variable in online printing with some companies providing you a sample image or screen profile so that you can set your monitor to the correct colors, this way your assured that what you see is what you get. Other Online printers use automatic settings based on standard printing methods. When in question the best thing to do would be to order a sample image so that you can make sure what you see is what you get!

We've provided a basic printing check list.
1) Determine the size of the image to be printed (this may change the ratio of height to width needed in your image, requiring significant cropping)
2) Verify that you image has the needed resolution for the size being printed.
(Only and issue when enlarging photos)
3) Crop according to the view you wish to have printed (cropping can change the image completely)
4) Adjust the colors of the image if needed to insure proper printing
(look for our color adjustment page coming soon)
5) Save the image as a copy or under a different name so that you maintain an original copy in case you would like to reedit
(personal preference)
6) Upload the image to your Online Printer
7) Order your prints
