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.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
