Turn Your Photographs into Lasting Artwork

by Hannah

Photographs are the perfect way of adding a personal touch to your home. In this digital age, how often do we get around to printing out photographs? I would guess for most people the answer is not very often. What if you could turn your favourite family photographs into permanent pieces of canvas artwork? Canvas printing is the perfect way of creating unique artwork for your home.

Many people use digital cameras and then electronic devices such as laptops and computers to store precious photos, rather than getting them printed or developed. It is easy to forget about memorable photographs when they are stored online or on a computer. Turning them into a canvas print means you can enjoy them every day.

It is easy to transform your image into a print. Many online canvas printing companies allow you to upload your chosen image online, customise your image and then order your print. You can apply different colour effects to your image – sepia or black and white effect adds a nice vintage feel to your image or you can enhance the original images for a vibrant print. You can edit your image to ensure it looks exactly how you want it to before creating your print – it’s easy to remove imperfections from the image such as red eye and blemishes! If only it were that easy in real life.

Hanging a family canvas print in your home, gives the room a personal, unique look and makes it feel homely. Canvas artwork is a great way of giving your room a makeover without spending lots of money totally redecorating. It’s surprising how you can totally transform a room with just a few simple touches like adding new artwork or some soft furnishings. Canvas artwork adds a focal point and creates a truly individual centrepiece to your room.

Canvas prints are available in a range of different sizes and finishes. A family group shot or landscape image would look fab on a large canvas while smaller canvases can look amazing grouped together in a collage. Split panel canvases are another option – this is where you split your image over a number of different canvases for a contemporary look.

Why not turn a selection of holiday photographs into canvas prints and create a holiday wall that you can enjoy all year round. We always seem to get more snap happy on holiday and especially since having children we are always snapping away capturing memories.

The hardest part is choosing which images to have printed onto canvas. The possibilities are endless.
