Canvas Photo Printing is Art in Focus

Mar 28, 2008
Tired of stacking piles of photo albums in the closet where the images will not be seen for years to come? Bored with the art prints that are available within your price range? Kill two birds with one stone with canvas photo printing.

Canvas photo printing is a technique that digitally imprints the image of your photo onto a canvas like those used in oil painting. It is usually not a matter of merely scanning the image into a computer. Most picture canvas artists draw out your photo by hand and feed the images into a computer that is specially programmed to replicate the craftsmanship associated with a fine gallery painting.

You can use canvas photo printing services to recreate whatever image you would like from your personal collection. If it is a copyrighted image of which you are not the legal owner ask your printing provider or artisan if it will be permitted before submission. Permission from the copyright owner is often enough to allow that image to be accepted. Chances are that you will not be able to obtain the rights to the images in popular magazines or books. If you really don't have any photos of your own that you like but would like to use the canvas photo process anyway, there are websites that sell royalty free images for a low cost. Istockphoto is an example and the purchase price allows you to do pretty much whatever you would like with the image short of resale.

Create an impressive wall display by canvas photo printing a mural or series of coordinating images that can be hung together. Themes can be created from aspects of nature, color schemes, a favorite vacation or cherished family snapshots. Your canvas print can be further customized with the use of imprinted slogans or collage style writing and alternate images.

The images affixed to the canvas can recreate the clarity and sharpness of your original photo or mimic brushstrokes. Singular subjects especially pop with the usage of photo printing as the process adds the illusion of texture with visual techniques. If you like a simplistic look, some artists will do line drawings or outlines of the image in your photo for a pop art look or (as mentioned above) make a collage.

Traditional canvas art can be extremely expensive, especially if you are on the market for a larger piece. Canvas art made from your photos is cheaper because the artist does not need to spend time coming up with a design as it is already provided. With a minimal investment, you could combine the forces of your photo collection and art collection and rejuvenate those bare walls.

Creating an art collection doesn't have to leave you bankrupt. Mix your photo based canvas art with other more traditional pieces for an Art Nuevo vibe. Inexpensive galley lights can be purchased, mounted to your ceiling and pointed at the more impressive art. Think of it as the grown up sophisticate's version of night lights.
