I have always loved photography. While I have the eye for it, the skill is something that has been building slowly. For Christmas I finally got a new camera that would help me take the images I see in my “eye”. So I have been taking lots and lots of pictures*.
However these pictures do me no good sitting on my computer. Sure they dress up my blog posts but at the same time I am surrounded by empty walls. So I vowed to start doing something with all these pictures.
Meet Easy Canvas Prints:
They take your digital image
and turn them into beautiful canvas prints
I really wasn’t sure what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised with how professional looking it was. In fact I had it sitting on my dinning room table when my husband came home and this is what happened:
Husband: What's this?
Me: The canvas print I told you about.
Hubs: Huh? Is that your picture? I mean did you take it?
Me: Yes it’s my picture.
Hubs: And you colored it like that? I mean Wow! This is really good. It looks like Art! It, well it looks like something people would pay for!
Gee thanks hun.
So yeah, it looks great! I love it! The process was so easy and took maybe 10 minutes. I uploaded an image and went through all the steps to choose wrap style and orientation. I had one all the editing and specialized coloring before I uploaded my picture. If you don't have photo software they do offer options including black and white, sepia and re-touching as well as border options.
The only compliant with the process was mostly due to my own lack of time. See I would have preferred a gallery wrap where the image wraps around the sides. But I had already cropped my image to what I wanted. If I had chosen gallery wrap I would have lost most of the image I wanted and I just did not have the time (three kids! summer break! everyone wants something! now!) to go back and re-edit and upload another image.
That being said, I actually like the reverse image wrap a lot better than I thought I would:
See that is the side exposed to the room, and I see it a lot. So now that I have it in my hand I don’t mind it so much! I do wish some details on optimal image size were given (maybe they were and I missed them? screaming kids and all).
The print came out beautifully and I can’t wait to add more pictures up all over my house. Pictures deserve to be out and shared not hidden in a computer!
Want to get your pictures out of the computer and made into beautiful art? Than it’s your lucky day because one reader will get their very own print from Easy Canvas Prints!
Tell me what picture you would have made into a canvas, your kids? A flower? Landscape?
