Guide to Online Photo Printing

Do you have a digital camera? Have you taken loads of digital photos? If so, sooner or later you will probably want to print your photos. Did you know that online photo printing is one of the best, most economical ways to print your photos? Its’ really easy to do, and the results are outstanding. Here’s how. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Take Good Pictures

The results of digital photo printing will only be as good as the pictures you take. If your pictures are poorly framed, or blurry, they won’t look good no matter how good your online photo printing service is. These days, simple point and shoot cameras can produce outstanding images with a minimum of fuss. All you have to do is understand a little bit of how the autofocus and auto exposure work—and when they won’t work. Auto focus has a hard time with moving targets; it sends a beam of light to the object you want to photograph and adjusts the lens, then checks again; this can cause it to adjust focus again and thus be blurry or wrong. The key thing you need to know about auto focus is where the actual focus will be. Generally you will have to consult your camera’s manual for that, but usually there’s some sort of indicator in the viewfinder screen. Those two basic technical considerations will help you get your pictures technically correct, but the aesthetics are up to your talent and imagination.

2. Put Your Pictures Online, Perform Any Necessary Editing

The next step is to choose an online photo gallery. Make sure your choice of online photo galleries offers the features you need. The most important ones are unlimited storage for your photos, and, of course, online photo printing. Storage is important because photo files are very large, and they will quickly fill up even a quota that seems far more than adequate. These days many sites offer free unlimited online storage so there is no excuse for not having enough storage.
Many online photo galleries offer photo editing tools in their online galleries, so you can get the best out of your image before online photo printing. Generally the tools will be quite simple—cropping, some simple color correction, etc. for most hobbyists, this will be quite adequate. If it is adequate for you, you will be able to use it for free on sites that offer this and you won’t have to learn a complicated and expensive photo editing software suite like Adobe Photoshop in order to improve your images for online photo printing.

3. Order Your Prints

The next step is the easiest. Use the online form to order prints. Decide the size, and decide whether you want glossy or matte finish, make sure you can afford the price of the prints, give them your credit card number over their secure websites and click go. The prints will be near photo quality on photo quality paper, considerably better and in the long run, cheaper than you could print at home using an unreliable inkjet printer.
