Tips for Choosing the Ideal Photos for Canvas Printing

When choosing images for canvas printing, it's important to prioritize high-quality photos with clear, sharp details and adequate lighting. Higher pixel counts result in crisper prints, and selecting images where the subject takes up most of the frame ensures a focused composition. Consider the canvas shape and size that best suits your photo, whether it's a vertical rectangular canvas for portraits or a square frame for emphasizing the subject's face. Decide whether you want borders or wrapping and choose a printing company like The Stackhouse for top-tier fine art canvas printing services.
