There’s a saying, “we don’t remember the days, we remember the moments.” We want to help you print your most cherished family moments. We’ve put together all our tips from photo selection, editing, framing, to hanging. Here’s your guide to print and frame your family photos.
Choosing The Right Family Photo To Frame
Getting the right photo of your family is sometimes half the battle. We have interviewed expert Family Photographers, and have some key tips on how to capture great family photos here for a start.
Next issue, a camera roll full of too many memories you want to frame. Narrowing the photo selection down is the next challenge. We suggest keeping it simple. Scroll through and keep an eye out for images that jump out at you. Either for the photographic shot or a nostalgic pull. Create a folder with your favourites so when it comes to framing time you have a collection of top-pick photos to frame. Try picking images that provoke a smile, remind you of a special time or place, capture your children character or are candid moments.
Ensuring A Quality Print
The Framefox platform allows for JPG, PNG, TIFF file formats. We recommend uploading the largest file size possible. The maximum file size is 100MB or 75 megapixels. Essentially, the better the resolution, the better your print result.
You also want to ensure you have the right photo lighting, contrast, saturation, and crop. There are some great photo editing apps which can help guide you through the editing process. Many of which offer automated correction filters which take all the guess work out of editing for you. Find a photo editing app thats right for you here >
We have a tip, black and white photos always look great in our frames! So when in doubt, make your photo black and white and ensure the contrast and lighting help your image pop so it’s ready to print.
The Print and Frame Process
Choosing the right frame to truly spotlight your piece is important. Pick a frame the compliment the image rather than distracts from it. If your home has wood accents choose a natural wood frame so the frames harmonise with your home. We recommend out raw-wood frames Hudson and Mayfield. Not sure? Our classic black and white frames are versatile and go with any artwork.
