Nearly all of us want to print our photos every now and then. But printing photos isn’t always completely simple—especially if you need to get multiple photos on to one page. And yet there are several ways to solve this problem.
The times when camera makers were waging megapixel wars are gone. And even the smallest resolution that you’ll regularly encounter in new cameras is enough to let you print your photos at fairly large sizes. So how is it with MPx counts, and what do they mean for your printing?
When it comes to printing your photos, you'll be amazed at what you can make. These days, you can print a photo on literally just about any surface imaginable and, as you might expect, this has inspired a new line of businesses promising to do just that.
Whether it’s to share with friends and family, to display in your home, or to preserve a photo for posterity, printing still has a large role to play in digital photography. Thanks to a new generation of more affordable inkjet printers, you can now print out huge photos: from 13-inches to 24-inches wide!
In a previous post we touched on just how fleeting digital photographs are. While we're capturing images with the latest d-SLRs and smartphones, these photos have a much greater chance of disappearing before we have grandkids than the images snapped with film cameras of old.
This Christmas, my parents presented my aunt with a collage of photos of their parents (my grandparents) in their younger years. As I looked at those old photos I was struck with a powerful question -- would my grandkids be able to do the same with all those digital photos I've been snapping? It's a tough question. During my parent's era, making sure family photos survived for generations was simply a matter of keeping track of a box of prints.
