How to Create the Best Online Photography Products
Choosing the right printer for your photography is step 2. What is step 1 you may ask? Making sure that your photos are print-ready. Here are a few tips to make sure that your photography products are going to look their best!
Edit Your Photos Before You Print Them
If you don’t like something about your photo, printing it is not going to fix it. Printers are not magical erasers and editors; that’s up to you. If your photo is dark, low res, or out of focus, you should spend some time editing the photo or choose a different photo. On this topic, make sure that your photos are high-resolution. We recommend a DPI of at least 300 or more! This is very important because, although the picture may look good on a monitor, it may not look that good printed if the DPI isn’t high enough. Monitors usually have a resolution of between 72 and 96, almost 33% of the recommended DPI for print. Check out our blog post with landscape photographer Randall Sanger for more tips on photography.
Photography Printing Pro Tip
Choosing the Right Paper Type
When printing your photography products, there are a couple of different paper finishes that you can choose from: matte, gloss, and uncoated paper. However, uncoated really should not be considered because this paper is really only used for workbooks or coloring books. Uncoated paper is similar to printer paper and is easy to write on. Gloss and Matte paper are great finishes for photography products. Gloss paper has a shiny and lustrous smooth coated gloss finish; it’s excellent for making colors look more vibrant. Matte paper is a dull coated sheet that has a low gloss finish. The matte paper has low glare.
Gloss vs. Matte Paper
When to Use a Glossy Photo Finish
The shine on glossy prints is great for bringing out vibrant colors, meaning that gloss paper would not be ideally suited for vintage style photography like black and white photos or sepia tones. However, gloss paper is excellent for Christmas photos, nature shots, or color portraits.
When to Use a Matte Photo Finish
If you are planning on displaying your photos behind glass, go for a matte finish because gloss photos will tend to stick to the glass of a photo frame and be too reflective. Matte photos are great for vintage-style photos, photography projects that are going to be handled a lot, or photography projects that are going to be displayed behind glass because of their low glare.
