Digital photo prints like a pro

by Florie Lyn Masarate

Looks like film will soon become extinct. With digital photography at everyone's disposal, expect it to happen soon.

Using digital cameras have eliminated the need to use film in photo taking. Why many use digital is quite obvious. People can easily capture photos, save them and see the final results in seconds. Instantly, pictures can be shared to other computer users through the Internet.

Photos can be edited through some program in the computer. Minimizing and adding features in photos depending on what you like. In addition, the quality of printed digital photographs is unsurpassed. You can never get precision, vividness and life-like pictures anywhere than by using digital gadgetries. This you can achieve by having professional printers do the work for you.

But then a lot of computer users do not know that they can achieve professional-looking photo prints themselves in the comfort of their own home. By using quality color printer, this is very much possible. Granted the you have the best photo printer available, but if you are printing them on regular paper, the result would not be near as good as a professionally done one.

If you are quality-conscious of how your photos will look like, consider four things when choosing paper suited for your digital photographs.

1. Paper whiteness. The whites the paper used, the livelier and more vibrant pictures will look. White paper generates sharp images and lively colors. This is a crucial element in producing high-quality photo prints.

2. Paper thickness. You need to know how to balance the paper you are using. Use one that you think is thick enough to make your pictures appear alive but is not very thick that you cannot feed it to your printer. Choose the one that is capable of these two considerations.

3. Paper exterior. Gloss and matte are two paper surfaces to choose from. Glossy paper produces great color but is susceptive to fingerprints. Matte paper gives less lively colors but is not sensitive to irregular handling.

4. Paper size. You can get the regular paper size you are used to when developing films.

When choosing the paper that will suit your photo prints perfectly, it is best to go with what printer manufacturers suggest. Many of them have already developed the kind of paper that is a perfect combination to the printer used.

Consider these things and you will have photo prints that look like they have come straight from a professional printer.
