Best Photo Processing for Framing

4 posts in this topic

I have some photos that I took in Denali Park, Alaska. I was thinking of have 4 or 5 of them printed and framed. I would like to know what type of processing I should have done for frame ready photos.

Some info on the pic

File Size 1.29 MB

Pic Size 2048 X 1536

Max Print 11 X 14

DD, I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. Are you asking us how best to use your own software to prepare the files for printing, or what type of processing the print lab will do?

There are lots of online print labs that will do your printing inexpensively and all you have to do is transmit the photos, or nowadays you can bring the files into most any photo printing store or SuperWalMart type store and get them done there.

I'm going to have them printed by a processor. I was asking if there were any special finishes or processing methods that were better for display.

Ah, OK.

That's really a matter of personal preference. I tend to like matte papers for printing because I don't like the glare of glossy papers, and I typically use a very simple frame in black or cherry color and a single, neutral colored mat. I also don't put colored or other borders around the image in the print itself.

Regardless whether it's my own image I'm framing or someone else's that' I've bought for myself, I do it this way because in my opinion it should be the art the eye is drawn to, not an elaborate mat/frame combination. For my enjoyment of any photographic art, a simple presentation is best.

Not all agree with that, however. Just my $.02.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
