THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT DIGITAL FILES
PRINTING DOS & DONT'S
At Elisabeth Franco Photography, Gloucester, we believe that photographic art should be professionally printed and displayed, not stored on a CD or a hard drive.
All our Newborn, Family and Children's collections include digitals and prints to suit every budget, as well as à la carte products such as canvases, acrylics, wooden orbs, frames and fine art prints.
Here are some MUST tips when printing your images:
•What you don’t want to do is print them on a home printer.
•Printing is an art. Unless you know what you are doing, it can be challenging to get a quality print that looks like what you see on your screen. Elisabeth Franco Photography uses the best professional photo labs to ensure high quality and longevity.
•Color space, monitor calibration, paper profiles and printer technology are advanced stuff, so we suggest leaving that to the pros.
•When your purchase digital images from Elisabeth Franco Photography, your prints are ordered and checked through a professional lab. Their prices are very competitive with other lower quality labs like Boots, Jessops, Photobox, but their quality is premiere. We have spent a considerably amount of time in researching the best pro labs to offer you the best printing services in the whole of the UK.
•When we edit your images in Photoshop, we embed color “data” into the file that a professional lab with advanced equipment can read. They assess that metadata and print your files as exactly as we saw it on our screens here at Elisabeth Franco Photography's studio.
•Elisabeth Franco Photography can save you the tedious job of ordering and uploading your images online. We can order your prints in any size and finish with superior quality. How convenient and easy is that?
Elisabeth Franco Photography is a "hybrid" studio. We offer both art pieces and digital images. We believe a printed image or wall art product such a beautiful framed canvas, to be the most valuable way to highlight and preserve your art. However, in the digital age, owning digital negatives is very important to our clients and we gladly offer them.
We want to stress how important it is to print your images. Digital files are not archival and will eventually corrupt. The safest place for your images is to print them. A professional print will last 100 years or more. Our available products offer a beautiful way to display the memories of your love ones in your home and your digital images for archival purposes and today's digital sharing technologies. Remember those 5 1/4 floppy disks? And the "moder"update 31/2 hard disks?What would you do if that's where your wedding or family pictures were stored and you needed to see them today? Who knows what type of digital storage devices will come and on in the next few decades!
