In commercial settings, first impressions are everything. Art plays a major role in setting the atmosphere. Just as important is the presentation of the art. That’s where picture frames come into the equation. Bigger brands also use their art displays as part of corporate branding. Smaller businesses like beauticians, dentists, bed and breakfasts, and local cafes/coffee stores use art to enhance the interior décor while helping create the atmosphere they want to invoke.
Photo frames are multipurpose. You can use them to protect and present so many types of memorabilia. The best part is that they give your home that all-important touch of personalisation. What you frame and display has meaning to you, and your family heritage, and helps remind you of good times in your past. Ultimately, frames are the presentation cases for your most important memorabilia.
To get a true replica of an image on any device, photos need to be transformed. Digital photos use the RGB colour profile and printers use CYMK. You get more colours from a printer than a digital display screen can show. To get the best visual cue of what your final printout will be, there are some steps you can take to alter what you see on your screen to resemble a truer depiction of what a printer will create.
Changes are happening at a rapid pace, and it isn’t just photojournalists snapping photos as evidence of the changes we see happening around us. Citizen journalists are taking up documentary photography and stepping outside of their comfort zones to create projects that document history. No special tools are required. Just a camera and the one on your phone is likely good enough. All you need is the narrative you want to convey, then go out and about and take the shots to construct a narrative.
Canvas floating frames have become a popular choice for art enthusiasts seeking to enhance the visual appeal of their canvas pictures. These frames not only provide structural support but also introduce a transformative element that elevates the overall presentation of the artwork.
The days of printing photos soon after they’re snapped are long gone. More common now is to store your photos as digital media, print the ones that look the best, and have the best of the best professionally printed and framed so you can enjoy them. With photos on devices consuming more memory, cloud storage services are at the ready with offers to help you hoard your collections in the cloud for x amount per month or year.
Would you like to wake up in the morning to a gorgeous angelic print above your bed, or perhaps you have a home office in a loft conversion where the ceiling’s angled, and you’d like to hang a photo frame on a sloped wall to see when you’re at your desk. There are hanging systems you can use to accomplish that type of setup.
Framed photos are terrific for personalising your space and conveying stories in a picture format. They don’t always convey the emotional appeal you’d like them to though.
Smartphones are terrific at capturing memories with the camera app. When you want to take them off the phone, or out of the cloud to create a tangible copy though, not all will translate to print very well. To avoid disappointment, it helps to know what digital image details mean so you can tell if they’ll be any good when printed.
The Meanings that Matter in Digital Photo Details
Fairy lights are no longer used once a year, then boxed away until next year’s festive season. They’ve become a staple in home decor. Some people use them to light up staircases, others surround their mirrors with fairy lights, and glass vases and/or bottles can be decoratively illuminated with miniature lights.
