Now, let’s say that you want to create a canvas print in your home. Congratulations are in order. A lot of people are bothered about the right photo to be used for the canvas print. You can either choose one of your pictures or create custom canvas prints. 

Here are some things to consider when choosing the right photo for your canvas print. Ladies and gentlemen, shall we?

I want to print onto canvas. How do I do it?

If you want to print onto canvas, you’ll need some things:

1. Very high-quality images

Canvas photos only come out beautiful when the pictures have a high resolution. The higher the resolution, the better. But you don’t have to worry if your photo wasn’t taken on a DSLR. When the canvas is rightly designed, you can print your images even though they were taken on a phone.


2. Software for photo printing

You have to look for software that makes it easy to create personal designs. It must include templates for collages because they are ideal for smaller images. Furthermore, if it’s smart software, it’s better. It will serve as a guide during the design process and ensure that you create an image that you’d be proud to look at, any day, any time.

How to choose the right size of the photo for your canvas print?

Canvas printing is very technical. Not all sizes of photos work. You have to know the right size if you want your canvas print to come out beautifully. It is recommended that the digital photo has been to be about 250 KB. But remember that the larger the photo, the more beautiful it tends to turn out.

If you go out with your camera to take a few pictures and you intend to convert it to canvas prints later, set it to the right resolution possible.

But how can I check the photo size?

The easiest way to check the photo size is to store it on your computer. Hover the mouse over, right-click it. On a Windows computer, you will find it under the properties. On a MacBook, search for “show Info”.

Can I use Photos from Facebook?

If you want to use a photo from Facebook to design your canvas print, there are several photo printing software that can do the job as long as these photos are at least 250 KB. If you’re printing those photos to canvas, note that they can be too small for large prints.

In this case, a collage layout is preferred.

How can I know if my photo is good enough to print?

The easiest way to do this is to use photo printing software because this software often has a quality checker that will alert you if your photo is good enough.
