The first thing that most people probably notice when it comes to digital photo prints is that they’re so much easier to access and arrange than the analogue equivalents were. The second aspect of digital imagery, however, is the fact that the images, once captured, can be used to make an extremely wide range of items, including everything from a key ring to a photo book.
The science of photo printing has advanced dramatically in the past few years. The digital revolution has made the process of turning images into actual photographs simpler, quicker and cheaper than it used to be in the analogue era. Whereas actual rolls of film placed limits on the number and type of photographs you could take, in terms of the length of the roll of film itself and the cost and convenience of having the film developed, digital cameras are capable of storing many hundreds of images, meaning that you can take as many photographs as often as you like and then take the time to go through them and select your favourites afterwards.
Whereas analogue photo prints had to be handled by specialist laboratories which would charge prohibitive prices for the skills and equipment they provided, digital photo prints are something which can be handled easily by the individual on their own terms. Not only is it simple, quick and cheap to produce multiple copies of your favourite images, the flexibility of digital technology means that the images, once captured, can be used to make a myriad of different gifts and items.
If you’re looking for photo gifts for Mum, for example, in order to celebrate Mothers day and let her know just how much she means to you, and how keenly you appreciate everything that she does, then personalised items based upon your own images are exactly the thing you’re looking for. Mothers day gifts which can be made using your own photographs range all the way from smaller novelty items such as fridge magnets and key rings, to luxury objects like full sized one off canvas prints or bespoke, individual photo books.
It should also be borne in mind, when you’re walking around the shops trying to find the right greeting cards, that creating Mothers day cards using your own images is one way of making sure that the cards you send are genuinely touching, heartfelt and deeply personal. The natural choice will be to fashion a card using a favourite photograph of your children, since family is what the day is all about, but the actual choice of image is entirely in your hands, meaning that you can select something which will not only be unique, but which will reflect both your own personality and that of your Mum. Once you’ve selected the image you want to use, the process of creating the item has been made extremely simple. Once you’ve uploaded the image you can use the software to tailor and design the gift, and the final result will be something which is produced to the highest possible standards, uniting personal input with undoubted luxury.
