printing and framing a digital photo
« on: 24 March, 2022, 01:56:42 pm »
I have some photos that are very precious to me and would like to get a few of them printed and framed. Does anyone have experience of and can recommend services that do this?

I've always had prints printed, then framed at a local framer, so can't help on a 'complete' service.
It is simpler than it looks.

Ditto. The value of a 'split' service is that you get to choose the frame suitable for the subject. There are literally dozens to choose from.

Aye, I found several online, including photobox.

Was looking for an all in one service as there aren't exactly a lot of picture framers near me.

These are just photos of sentimental value. Some are digital, some are digital photos of old prints. I don't have the originals anymore.

You may or may not be aware that there are some smart AI photo restoring services/software available these days - I've bene watching with interest but not actually tried any yet.

if using photobox make sure you google a discount code - only last week I saved more than half price on a photobook vz £10.99 of the price of £19.99.  I was initially disappointed they had raised the  price of the book from £11.99 to £19.99 as the last order day for Mother's Day had passed (which was not my concern) but 55% discount code from vouchers'r'us or whatever soon sorted that.  I have always found the quality  of their books and large prints better than others.

You could scan them, edit and tidy them up in Photoshop, and then either make a print from a good printer or - as I've been doing lately with B&W, make an acetate 'negative'  (after inverting the image) and then print them in a darkroom.  I've been making cyanotypes like that recently.
