Digital Photo Processing

Free customer services regarding digital photo processing refers to specialized photo processing to enlarge the original resolution photo to a customer’s requested print size or the size ordered. Our criteria is that any photo enlargements print with the identical visual quality of the original photo. To achieve this, requires highly specialized digital processing software and in some cases, a three step process to boost the image resolution to an acceptable printing resolution at the target print size.

Customers can send us their digital photo for processing to determine the largest print size possible that will print with original photo quality. We will be glad to inspect and process the photo and send you a short report to let you know what maximum size can be printed, including the print formats (print aspect ratios/sizes) available for the photo and pricing. If you have a photo you want analyzed, photo files can be sent through our Website and please include details such as requested print size in the Special Instructions form space.

If a customer has ordered a print and the photo file sent for this order is too low in resolution for the print size ordered, we will contact the customer regarding these issues before printing and make recommendation on the maximum print size. So rest assured, no print ordered will ever ship with less than optimal image quality possible.

Digital Photo Cropping or Sizing

We offer our customers free photo cropping and sizing services. Digital photos should be cropped in a specific way so as not to alter the original photo pixel values, for the best quality when producing photo enlargements. This actually means, not entering a certain resolution value for the crop when setting up the crop parameters. If you do this, the cropping software will digitally rebuild the pixels and thereby slightly degrade the original visual quality of the photo.

If you are not sure how to set up cropping parameters in the image editing software you use, simply send us the photo along with the print size you want, and we will crop the photo to size (if needed) and send you a sample to view. If you have ordered a print and the photo for the order requires cropping for the print size, we will send you a sample of the cropped photo for approval before printing the order.
