How to Narrow Down Your Photo LibraryThe easiest way to begin choosing a photo to print on canvas is to start thinking about the subjects that are important to you and where you will be hanging your new canvas print. Especially if you have hundreds or thousands of images to select from, just diving in to your photo portfolio can be overwhelming. Think about considerations such as:
- Do you have a theme, or are you looking for a specific memory? If the time has come to commemorate a specific event, it is much easier to narrow your focus on photos to have printed on canvas. If you haven’t already, try separating photos that reflect the memory you are looking for from other photos in order to concentrate on those that are most important to you.
- Do you want to tell a story? Especially when paired with other photos and artwork, a canvas print can tell a story about you, your family, your goals–nearly anything! If you are looking to tell a story in a central place in your home, think about photos that you have that might help roll out your narrative.
- What size are you looking to have made? Although even Instagram photos can make great canvas prints, if you want a very large-sized canvas, the quality of the photos you are considering may be a tie-breaker in deciding which photo to use. If you are not sure whether a given photo will work, the professionals of Canvas Press are always happy to help.
Tips to Make It Easier Next TimeOnce you’ve gone through your top image picks and selected the perfect photo for your next photo on canvas, you might be thinking about ways to make the selection process easier for next time. One great way to do this is to select your favorite images from each photo session as you upload them to your computer and save them in a folder for future printing. You might also consider keeping tabs on your most liked or commented upon photos on social media for ideas on what to print next!
