Printing Pictures On Canvas

May 1, 2008
Most amateur and professional photographers consider only one or two different mediums when developing their photos. The most common is standard photo paper, which is what you would get when developing your photos at any photo store. Photo paper comes in different styles including matte, semi-glossed, or glossy. Most people do not even think about other possibilities including printing pictures on canvas.

There are many reasons why an amateur or professional photographer would consider printing pictures on canvas. First of all, canvases are more durable and have more texture than traditional photo paper. Photo paper can tear, fade, and comes in different levels of quality. In recent years, many people have taken to printing their own photos off of home printers, but this often results in poorer quality photos.

Canvas provides a unique and long-lasting way to preserve memories. If kept in the right conditions, printing pictures on canvas will allow your memories to last nearly 100 years in pristine condition. Even storing your digital photos on the computer does not create such a long life expectancy. This long lasting quality will allow your memories to last throughout the generations for your family and friends to enjoy.

Canvas also can turn amateur photographers into great artists. Canvas gives photos an artistic quality similar to those seen with oil paintings. This unique quality allows you to show off your pictures and make your hobby into something more. You can sell your canvas pictures, give them away as presents, and share your pastime with all of your friends.

Because of the unique texture and painting like effects that are created with printing pictures on canvas, landscapes and portraits are the ideal types of photos you would want to print. Printing landscapes on canvas will invoke curiosity and awe from onlookers. They will not be sure if they are looking at a great painting or a great photograph. Colors are enhanced, and the texture really makes your image stand out. Portraits also look great on canvas causing similar reactions in those that decide to take a look.

Printing photos on canvas wasn't always available to everyone. There were few photo shops that had the professionals with the skills or tools to print such photos, and few people even knew about the option. However, with the dramatic increase in the use of digital photography and the Internet over the last decade, photographers have a plethora of new resources that they can use to print such photos. There are many online stores and resources that will print your photos on canvas and for a reasonable price. Although more expensive than traditional photos, the value added by printing on canvas makes it well worth it.

Developing photos on canvas is something that every photographer should try at least once to see how they could change the artistic look of their photos. The photos do not lose any quality from the original if being reprinted, and if anything they add quality. They are long lasting, interesting, and make great gifts. If you have never printed a photo on canvas before, you will soon see that it will not be something you regret.
