Hi there

I have some photos that I am going use to make a couple of photo canvases for DH. I just would like the pictures to be enhanced as in colour/brightness adjusted and so on, so that they are at their best when printed. I have had a go myself, but not feeling too good about my results. Could someone please have ago for me? PLease keep them in the large size of possible.

thank you so much!   original.gif

I know you want to keep them as big as possible but how big is the canvas?

Do you have bigger files? The one I just opened is approx 30cm to 27cm but only 72px per inch. To get it to print copy I need to get them to 300px per inch so I would have to bring the size down to 7cm2.

The canvas is 12x 12 inches

There will be 3 photos on each canvas.

Photos 3 and 6 will be larger on one half of the canvas, and the others wil each be smaller on the other half (2 pic each)

like this

The red is the part that will be wrapped around the frame

ETA Follies yes I do have larger ones, but it looks like photobucket reduced the ones I have linked to. I could email you the originals if you PM me your address?

12 x 12 is really small for that design. I can edit them using indesign into that configuration and make it a pdf. Printers prefer using pdfs then jpg.

However they are such great photos I would do a canvas each with no white space.

Actually you're right, 12x12 will be rather small. I guess I could go larger! And I just realised that they will be 40% off if I get the order in by Sunday. I am using the software that is on the Harvey Norman website, so there are several configurations to choose from, I just need to drop the photos in.

I hope this helps, a great photo reducer I use is infranview. I use it for Facebook. It helps reduce a photo when it is too large and the photo does not get messed up when it is smaller. I used to try Microsoft Paint, but the picture never looked good doing this.
