I was a print ordering fool these last few weeks. Nations Photo Lab had several print sales. They got me hook, line and sinker. The small green photo in each shot is a 5x7 photo, I added it for scale.
(I used sea shells to hold down the photo edges. Some of these photos were rolled in mailing tubes)
I'm all about sharing what I learned, knowledge is power!
Here is what I learned this week.
Not all the photos I had printed on a large scale turned out well. Some were not as sharp, others the colors were off a bit. I opted out of auto color correction offered by Nations.
The problems I had all come down to pixels. I photo edited on my computer, Nations suggests we use their photo edition program on their site. Next time I will. Sadly I didn't make copies of my photos before I did the editing, so I'm stuck. Next time I will keep copies of the originals so they can be photo edited elsewhere if needed.
I had this photo printed on metallic paper. It has a wonderful shimmer to it,
my camera didn't pick it up.
These two photos are also printed on metallic paper. The winter scene is over the top beautiful!
Now for lesson number two.
