Tips for photo files

  • Select a photo file that has lots of overall brightness—avoid real dark images or photos with a lot of shade or shadow area
  • Look for color-rich, super saturated photos. If you can, dial up the color intensity 2 – 5 percent so really make your new photo canvas pop!
  • Keep your subjects center of frame, especially if you will do a wrapped edge canvas
  • Avoid too many strong vertical or horizontal lines in the background or foreground. Things like fence posts, telephone lines, dominant tree trunks, etc. may be distracting
