Over the years, photography is pursued as a hobby by many people and to some, it turned out to be a career for them. It is the passion of almost everyone. Using our own digital camera or cell phone camera, we love to click some good pictures anytime. To really enjoy seeing or viewing these pictures for several years, they should be printed on high quality canvas. In order to achieve the best quality on your canvas prints, photo resolution is one of the most important things you should consider.
The resolution of an image is the size of the digital image produced by the camera. An image printed from a digital camera is made up of tiny dots called pixels. The term pixel is derived from the words “picture element”, referring to the smallest dot in an image that is used to store color. The number of pixels determines the resolution.
It is advantageous if you have a camera with a higher resolution because you will have more pixels to work on which is very essential when converting your photos into a large format print called canvas prints. If your photos have higher resolution or more pixels, they will remain clear and picture details are intact, when increased in size. As they say, high quality prints start with high quality images. Photography is best handled by cameras with high mega pixels.
You should also be aware that cropping affects the resolution of an image. Whenever you crop a photo, its resolution is decreased by reducing its number of pixels, thus affecting the image’s suitability for certain canvas size prints.
When deciding to convert your images into photo on canvas, it is a good idea to know if these images have the proper resolution in order to get the desired clarity. Also make sure that your chosen printing company has a picture checking tool that will tell you whether the image you uploaded has the ideal resolution for the canvas size you want. It is difficult to improve the quality of images with low resolution. Printing companies can add pixels through a process known as interpolation, but this cannot add clarity. These images will still look blur even when printed on high quality canvas.
For canvas prints, choose your photo with utmost care. Make sure that the resolution of the picture should be proportionate to the canvas size. In the end, it will be you and your guests who will benefit from the beautiful canvas prints displayed on your walls.
