Have you ever thought about bringing your favorite artwork out of its digital form, print it on a large canvas and frame it in your living room? Or maybe you are redecorating and you want to be a courageous designer and arrange the colors on your walls with style and good taste? Before you start choosing the perfect images to print, here is something you should bare in mind.
Most designers and photographers know how difficult it is to work with low resolution images. Sure, the resolution such as 72 pixels per inch is good enough for the screens of our devices, but when it comes to enlarging the image for printing, low quality can be quite an obstacle.
Most images we see on the web are 72 ppi, usually because they are "lighter", they don't take up much space, which is handy for fast loading. But, if we enter the world of canvas prints, stretching the image onto canvas is making every single pixel visible, which is why recommended size of the image for printing is 150 ppi or 300 ppi.
Even though printing your photos from Facebook in good quality might be difficult, it is not impossible. Designers use different tricks and effects in Adobe Photoshop and other designer programs, to offer solutions to this challenge. Sometimes, even the poorest quality image can look like a masterpiece in the hands of professionals.
CanvasPop is dedicated to produce highest quality canvas prints. Their team of designers is passionate and talented to work with your custom resolutions and create the hottest canvas to frame on your wall. Even though printing low resolution images is possible, it is still recommended that you try to find this image in a larger resolution. Some websites have an option to view the image in its original size, so make sure to pick the right one for printing.
With Christmas behind us, the hype of celebrating the beginning of 2019 is growing, and maybe the perfect present for somebody you love is to give them what they love. Printed. On a large canvas.
