8 Reasons to Print Pictures
I LOVE the printed photograph. While I do advocate to have your photos stored digitally, there are also some very good reasons to have the printed photo in hand, too.
1 – Print photos make great gifts! They are a way to stay close to those that mean the most to you, even when you’re not. Sending print photos in a special frame (instead of just a digital jpg via email) shows what they mean to you.
2 – Display your favorite images in your own home. Make a gallery wall. Frame and hang as a statement piece – using an oversized frame, printing on a different texture such as canvas, metal or glass.
3 – Make your work station more personal with framed photos of your spouse, children, parents, fun events with friends and more.
4 – Printed photos are just more personal. They are tangible, you can hold them in your hand and experience those same feelings all over again. Not so much from a computer screen.
5 – Incredible as it sounds, not everyone is in the digital world. Print and share photos with your non-digital friends.
6 – Visit those special memories anytime you like. Be honest, how often do you go to the cloud or your digital storage and pull up those memories? Print photos can be stored in albums, scrapbooks, photobooks and more so that you can enjoy the memories over the years.
7 – JPGs deteriorate over time, especially if you happen to open, close and duplicate it over the years. So, best advice is to make a print while the digital image is in prime condition.
8 – Technology can fail or become obsolete. We’ve talked about how disasters impact your photos – disasters can also include the crashing of your computer’s hard drive, the corruption of files, the dissolution of your cloud storage service. Having prints of your photos gives you a back-up of your back-up.
