In pro­por­tion

En­sure that you pick the right pa­per as­pect ra­tio to match your im­age. Broadly speak­ing, that’s 3x2 for Nikon DSLRs.

File for­mats

There’s no need to con­vert RGB im­ages to CMYK be­fore up­load­ing. Stick with high-res, high-qual­ity JPEGs and you can’t go wrong.

Gloss or matte?

Glossy pa­per is great for boost­ing colour vi­brancy, whereas a matte fin­ish or tex­tured fine art pa­per can bet­ter com­ple­ment mono­chrome im­ages.

Lit­tle ex­tras

Most print providers make it easy to add fea­tures like bor­ders or text, and some pro­vide lay­out tem­plates to help com­pose col­lage prints.

In the frame

Your beau­ti­ful new print de­serves to have the right pre­sen­ta­tion and pro­tec­tion, so see whether your cho­sen printer also of­fers an in-house fram­ing ser­vice.
