I believe that most people print photos only on special occasions once in a Blue Moon. But the new Google Photos test subscription wants to make photo printing a habit. It helps you select the ten best photos you took every month. It will then order prints for you, and they will be delivered to your address.
My son texted me the other day asking for my meatball recipe. It’s a rarity that he texts me for recipes, so I was thrilled to my toes. About a week later, my daughter texted me asking for my fresh pumpkin pie recipe. Again, joy spread through my body as I thought to myself, “Finally.” See, I’ve been waiting for the day my children discovered the joy of cooking and baking. It had gotten to the point where I was questioning if it would ever happen. Would all of my recipes die with me? Would my last words on this earth be, “I love you, children. And why didn’t you want my Alfredo recipe?”
There are many reasons to print your photos: we’ve urged you to do it dozens of times. Having your images printed has plenty of good sides, but it comes with a set of questions that makes most of us confused. In this video, Aaron Nace of PHLEARN teams up with Xander Fischer of Print Lab Chicago to talk about this topic. They answer some of the most asked questions about photo printing and give you some tips that will help you get perfect prints every time.
Despite the fact that we live in the digital era, printing your photos is still a fantastic way to preserve your precious memories (or make a creative project). Google Photos has introduced a new feature that lets you order prints straight through the app and pick them from a local CVS Pharmacy or Walmart store the same day. Along with the new printing feature, Google Photos has some more changes, all revolving around reliving your memories.
Does your camera resolution matter when you need to choose the side of the print? This is what many people wonder, and basically, it’s not important. If you can take a photo with your camera, print it at 6 x 4 inches and be happy with it – you can print that same photo in basically any size that you like. In this video, James Popsys will tell you in a simple language why megapixels aren’t important when choosing the size of your print.
If you’re using Apple’s Photo Print Products service, there is little time left to place your orders. Apple is soon to discontinue its photo printing service, and the final orders must be placed by the end of September.
She can’t remember things like she used to. It started gradually-she’d forget a name or a birthday or where she parked her car. And then, she found herself forgetting every day things, those things one must remember in order to live life. She would forget to go to the grocery store; she’d forget a conversation that occurred ten minutes earlier; she would forget to eat dinner.
They call it Dementia, and it is, although the word is more of an umbrella term that covers many types of memory loss. And Dementia, well, it’s a tricky thing, because even those systems and techniques created to stir the memory and bring things to mind don’t always work. I mean, a calendar does no good if you can’t remember to look at the calendar each day, right? You forget that you don’t remember.
In the age of digital photography, few people still print their images. We are used to storing them on clouds, hard drives, and other digital mediums. But there are reasons why printing shouldn’t be forgotten and why it’s still an important part of the photography process. In his video, Peter McKinnon gives some excellent points about it. Even if you’ve completely switched to digital – there are a few good reasons why printing the photos is still relevant and irreplaceable.
There are plenty of misconceptions about the number of pixels, resolution, image size and so on, which can make us quite confused sometimes. To make things worse, the terms DPI (dots per inch) and PPI (pixels per inch) are often used interchangeably, which makes the understanding even more difficult.
Essentially, DPI is important for printers. It’s a number of color dots printer uses to reproduce colors of the image. It’s also used for screen resolution, although PPI can also refer to screens as well. PPI applies to everything in relation to resolution and the size of a digital image.
In this video, you will see a brief explanation about DPI and how important is this value for printing big formats. How big is big enough? Does size matter at all?
Anybody who’s ever ordered anything substantial from B&H will likely, at some point, receive a printed catalogue. This is essentially an inch thick (or bigger) 300+ page book featuring every product in B&H’s inventory. I’ve received them myself in the past. It started after ordering my first “Pro” lens. I didn’t ask for them, and after receiving the second I wanted no more.
Having to throw them out is a terrible waste, and not throwing them out when a new one arrives is simply taking up space on the shelf that could be otherwise better used. There is an easy way to stop the printed catalogues from showing up regularly on your doorstep, though. All you need do is simply fill in this form on the B&H website.
