Copy Your Gallery!
Please make several back ups of your images. This is the first thing you should do. Store one copy in a safety deposit box if you can.
When printed, your images may not necessarily match what you see on your computer screen due to difference in monitor calibration. Therefore, I strongly recommend against altering your images on the computer as it could greatly affect the final print quality. Before investing in very large prints, it is a good idea to have a 4×6 printed first to make sure their colors/quality are desirable.
Leave these images at 300 dpi. That is the best resolution for printing. When you go from a 4×6 to an 8×10 or change ratios, you are going to lose some parts of the image. It’s unavoidable. When possible, crop as needed using the tools in the kiosk or by the online print vendor. Preview to make sure you’re not losing important parts of the image and then adjust as needed.
Do NOT let labs auto color correct your prints! Look around for that option and make sure it is not selected.
We have provided you with the highest quality images possible and cropped and color-corrected them how I believe they will print the best. Some images (particularly those shot in low light) may have visible digital noise when enlarged too much. This is normal, but may not be aesthetically pleasing. In those cases, black and white might be a better option.
In addition, if you crop an image in too tightly in Photoshop or another editing program, you will lose resolution and may cause it to be pixilated when enlarged. Bottom line: to ensure the best print quality, avoid altering your images before printing.
